After reading Jonathan Stout's gear suggestions here:
I decided to go for the Loar LH600 VS with the Dearmond Rhythm King pickup.
The guitar arrived yesterday after a rather nightmarish fashion and the first thing that stood out was how high the bridge was relative to the rest of the guitar's setup.
I've got the action set at about 2.2mm on the bass side and 2.0mm on the treble side, which suits me and I think sounds good.
But if you look at the two pics I've attached, the bridge is cranked up so high to allow for this relatively low action that it's slightly tilted forward and is barely still resting on the bridge pins.
Every floating bridge instrument I've ever owned has nothing like that much clearance between the bridge and base.
This just doesn't seem right to me. If anyone else here has gone for the above or a similar rhythm guitar setup with a Loar LH600, what was your guitar like out of the box?
I've contacted Thomann about this, but not surprisingly, I've heard nothing back from them.
Thanks for reading,
