    I'm still looking for the new bass, or I'm missing something here...???
    Ha! Well...i play bass too, I guess my autocorrect thinks I buy more basses than guitars and switched NGD to NBD.

    I shimmed the neck a tiny bit and adjusted the Floyd height. Now it's playing like it should. Nice and fast. I will need to set the intonation as it's off enough to bug me. I recently picked up a Peterson Virtual Strobe so it should dial in nicely.

    I use the strobe (check out the sweetened guitar setting, if you’re not familiar) and it works great with the fine tuners on the Floyd. Can be a little bit fussy with regular tuners because it’s so precise, in my experience, but a great tuner.

    I shimmed mine too to get the action down. I was patient and looked for two years to find a great deal (it was the last guitar I wanted to add to the stable). Shim and setup and it was all good. Couldn’t be happier. Enjoy! Love the gold Axis.
