Ok, if you've read my previous post about the G&L ASAT I bought today for $650 then you know the story. However It has to go back to the store tommorrow. I just noticed that the trussrod hex slot is totally stripped out! Nothing will grab enough to turn the truss rod. The trussrod seems pretty immovable. BUMMER! If it has to go back to the factory for repair, how long does something like this take to complete and get back to me? I live in So Cal, so I could take the guitar to the G&L factory myself. UPDATE.... I took back the ASAT. It seems someone (maybe a first owner or the previous guitar tech at the store) had tightened the truss rod so much that it jammed and stripped out the hex slot. It looks like the trussrod nut is way too far into the neck than normal. It won't budge at all. The guitar was sold to me as new with a 60% closeout price. The store offered to give me my money back, or send it in to the factory for repair. Since the store is no longer an authorized dealer, the clerk was going to "fake up" a recipt which was dated to time when the store was an authorized dealer. I though about it for a few hrs, and just went ahead and took the refund. Who knows what actually happened to this bass, and I didn't want a bass which is supposedly "new" with this kind of problem already. I know the price was killer, but probably because of the problem. Anyway I am going to look at another ASAT today, but this one is a semi-hollow body. Can anyone tell me the pros-cons of a semi-hollow ASAT to a solid body ASAT? thanks!
