    High saddles, shim or leave it?

    From your text, you seem have things a bit 'Bass-Akwords'... You don't [add] shims to a neck pocket to lower it, you need to either shave the bottom ot the Heal's neck or rout out the pocket a bit to lower the neck. Yes, from your pictures, those 'Barrels' are setting a little high for my...

    Looking for a "V" style neck

    Well, if you want to change a 'U' shape neck to a 'V' shape, just get busy with a 'Draw Knife' and a 'Wood Vise' and you can re-shape your own neck to your satisfaction.

    Middle Position Not Working

    A very quick check, just to see if the two middle terminals on the switch, that puts out the signal to the volume potential, has a 'Jumper' connecting the two together... IF you don't have that jumper in the middle of the switch, you probably have a switch issue and need a new one.

    What was your first guitars?

    Oh, boy, did you really open up the 'Archives'... Here's my first guitar, ever. That little 'Axe' opened a world of music and pop culture for me and millions of others too.
