Epiphone T-Bird Neck

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by theraginiranian, Jan 24, 2006.


  1. I just purchased a new Limited Edition Alpine White Epiphone Thunderbird. As i was playing it i noticed that where the neck attaches there seems to be a bit of a gap between the neck and the body. It is very small, but i didn't know if this was normal or not. If anyone has any info please post.

    Thanks.
     
  2. I don't know much about Thunderbirds, it's obviously not a thru-neck?
    When I bought my Epi EB (online) the neck was about 1 cm away from the body, so far that you could see the screws!! It was awful.
    I sent it back to the store and they sent me a new one. If there's a significant gap which moves when you move the guitar you should take it back to the store.
