Might need to shim the new neck to get a better angle and string height and possibly get your intonation back on track.
Yes, probably. But as it didn't need to be done before, I wonder. And the guitar is still within warranty period. All things adds up in the end, and I am then thinking a) truss rod wheel stuck b) pickguard getting worn after 3 days c) new neck needs shim... well I think this one will be up for grabs. d) new neck is considerably darker in its roast than the old one, me not like. It's better to sell it while it still has warranty...better luck next time, Sterling Ball.
Good on paper, on looks and feels good, plays good, sounds just ok, nothing to write home about, but then again I have been starting to get more wary of all active kinds of things, i e basses/guitars with batteries in them.
