I was super excited when it arrived yesterday until I tried to play it. The action was way too low and buzzing like crazy. So after a couple of hours of trying things, I think I have it correct now, BUT I had to do somethings that I wouldn't expect to do on a guitar at this price point:
Shim the nut
Shim the neck
Add more neck relief than the EVH specs (although it does say to set the board almost flat)
And raise the tremolo
The issue now is that the tremolo is no longer on top of the body like it should be. My suspicion is that I ended up with a bum neck pocket.
Or, am I just expecting too much from a guitar. Any thoughts?
