I like to ask you, did you buy it from sweetwater? I know i bought a guitar a year or so ago that also had extremely high action and fret buzz on top of that. It wasnt a very expensive guitar only about 400$ as it was only a squire telecaster. What got me was that they include this 55 Point checklist or something to that effect with the guitar and one of them wa "setup of the guitar" .
Being it was only a Squire i wrote it off and adjusted it myself.
Well just this past year I ordered a GODIN FREEWAY guitar. I asked the sale rep if it will be setup for me.. he said they do the check list . So i said fine This guitar I paid way over 800$ for it. Well when it finally came.. OH MY GAWD. IT was so bad i could stick mypinky under the strings on the high frets. But the ironic thing was IT ALSO came with the 55 POINT CHECKLIST I emailed the rep and asked him.. I THOUGHT THEY DO SETUP.. he contradicted himself and said THEY DONT DO SETUPS!
I am like what?!?!? According to this paper the checklist that they put in with it CLAIMS ACTION IS SETUP. I paid over 800$ for this gutar and i cant even play it. NO response back from him! in fact i havent heard from him since. I couldnt send it back cause i am disabled and i have no means of transportation to get to a local shipping place as it is 45-50 miles one way to the nearest one. So now i have been stuck with this very expensive guitar that is totally impossible to play. It is STILL high no matter what i do to try to set it up.. the lower i go with it the MORE fret buzz I get it is insane! And there is NO ONE arround here either that works on them.
I even contacted GODIN.. and the only thing they could do is give me setup specs for it, which was NO WAY even CLOSE to what this gutar was performing. To me now it is basically HUNK of junk!
I would NEVER buy a guitar from sweetwater again.. I was lied to twice from the same rep, about both guitars. claiming they setup the guitar prior to shipping.. and then contradictinghimself saying they DO NOT do setups!..which is a lie cause the checklist says THEY DO!
I am NOT saying i will never order ANYTHING from them.. as they still have the best prices and shipping. But thats like for items that i know does NOT have to have to be precisely adjusted .. like guitars for example DO NEED TO be precise!. I will never order a guitar from them again!

I would have spent my WHOLE LIFE searching for my Adoptive parents.
I wish my Biological parents would have told me about them, sooner!
