OK, so first of all, in every discussion about micro-tilt/3-bolt necks, someone always chimes in with the idea that doing this was cheap, "cbs reduced the number of screws as a cost-cutting method". That has got to be a myth! A single screw that costs 3 cents (fractions of a penny in the 70s) would have been nothing compared to the cost of designing and manufacturing the tilt mechanism itself. The way you do save money is to hurry things up, loosen up QC, and use cheaper materials. From the G&L faq: "One of the reasons Marketing was likely won over by the new design was that the three-bolt design had (quite incorrectly) developed a widespread reputation as being "unstable". This ill-founded rumor had mainly been perpetuated by those who had had experience with three-bolt Fenders of the '70s. What these folks were missing was that the instability seen in those '70s Fenders was due not to an inherent weakness in the three-bolt design itself, but rather to the sloppy, careless construction techniques used to build those instruments. Despite the fact that G&L's three-bolt neck was extremely well-executed and offered plenty of stability, the move to a four-bolt neck has proven quite beneficial in terms of eliminating initial "customer skepticism" from shoppers new to G&L." http://www.guitarsbyleo.com/faq.php3#Q10 Question is, how good are the re-issue micro-tilt necks? I would assume everything is up to MIA QC standards at the very least. Can anyone who has one comment on this? MIJ's too.
