    You play the string between the 1st and 12th frets. It's got two metal end points, so it should ring a bit. If it doesn't, it's fretting out and the neck is straight or in back bow.

    I was just thinking back to a time someone ended up with woodworm in their bass, and humidity is required for that. So if you see little holes where the paint is missing, definitely look into that.

    Just make sure it's done nicely. Are there any holes where the flakes occur? Seems kind of odd that things would just flake off in random locations like that.

    I would give it 2 weeks to "equalize", but I would also recommend possibly getting a Stewmac String Action gauge. It's been a great tool, and is definitely long enough to detect high frets as a "fret...

    Ok, I'm gonna call a bit of BS here. There's a very simple tool called a fret rocker. Any tech has one, and should have been able to take 10 seconds to identify the high or low fret. Sometimes a fret...

    Have you checked the action and measurements? It seems odd that only the E string would get buzz. Did the "techs" you brought it to say anything? Seems odd that they would not be able to fix it, or...

    The Luke 3 has several trim pots on the active preamp to adjust both the 2 and 4 position volume, as well as the boost. This is why there is very little volume loss.

    Wait, is it the Satin finish neck you don't get along with, or the Oiled neck? The HH neck is oiled, so what are you going to refinish it with?

    EBMM does not take custom orders. You would need to contact a dealer, and see if they could order one with the hardware swapped to black.

    Have you contacted Guitar Center yet? I'm trying to figure out why you haven't already sent it back. If that happened to the headstock, who knows what else happened to it.

    Hmm... Never met an oiled neck from EBMM that I didn't love. They can take some time to "break in" but after that they should be like butter.

    If the neck is fine, why? The costs would far outweigh any benefits, and if you have a matching headstock, that's another issue.
