  • Does micro-tilt suck tone?

    I'm totally blown away by the tone of my new CIJ strat. Can the use of the micro-tilt on my MIA strats explain why they sound duller?

    I always hated the micro-tilt on my Strat, not because of any perceived tone differences, but the neck used to pivot if I got a bit crazy onstage. I shimmed it and it stays put now.

      There's nothing wrong with the microtilt system at all, and it actually works very well.

    Yes the microtilt thing when used removes the neck from its fully seated in neck pocket. Terrible invention that just makes for poor neck joints imo.

      I have a hunch that the very high-mass trem block in my CIJ strat accounts for its deeper bass and longer sustain than on my MIA strats. I've done a new set up of the American one without the micro-tilt and the Japanse 57RI is still miles ahead. The American Series Strat sounds nice and tight but has less balls and piano-like tone to it... That CIJ strat may not be the best strat for everything but it seems quite exceptional to me and certainly is a blues/power funk gem.
