: : : I have a similar problem with my electric guitar.
: : : I didn't pay anything for it, but I think I got ripped off!
: : : I've tried, and it's absolutely unfixable. If you have the same problem the only answer is to put up with it (like me... I'm a bass player, who cares if I have a crap guitar!) or chuck it out.
: : Asbestos Man,
: : Just curious, have you checked stuff like the bow of the neck, the nut, etc. yet?
: : Also, what kind of guitar is it?
: I've tried all that. I finally resorted to giving it to a techie, and he told me the fret distances are actually for a different scale-length guitar. Like I said, it literally cost me nothing, but I'd still expect for the correct neck to be on the correct guitar!
: It's a "Fenda", so that might explain it a little.
Frets aren't right for the scale? WEIRD!
And being a Fenda might have a bit to do with it, yeah...
