I've bought this snakehead partscaster from classifieds on a British guitar forum. It's been with me for a couple of days already. The Good: - it is a tone fiend, - the neck is worth its weight in gold - smoothly aged finish and flattish radius, - it does not look like your average Esquire, - I've bonded with it quickly. However, it turned out that some of the important details about the guitar took a turn to the worse between the time that it was put it together 4 years ago and the moment I've received it. That's why we have... The Bad: - the nut slots under two strings are so wide that the strings move in the slot while bending (with a loud "ping"), - frets 2 and 3 are high, causing severe buzzing, especially on the A string, - strong buzzing on the empty E string, - the intonation is poor and setting it is virtually impossible at the moment, as bridge screw heads are stripped, - loose output jack with some crackling, - intermittent pots, especially tone pot, which requires a whack from time to time to eliminate hum. Bridge screws: Nut: No hard feelings towards the seller, I am just going to own it and transform into an instrument, which will stay with me for a long time. So... The Future: - make a new nut, - dress the frets, - swap bridge screws (and potentially saddles), - swap the bridge SD Broadcaster pickup for a Cavalier pickups custom tapped bridge pickup that's been in my drawer forever, - change the pots for push-push, one for pickup tapping, the other one for cocked wah, - play my a** off.
