I took mine to Bishop, my guitar tech. He lowered, leveled, and crowned the jumbo frets. He also reworked the nut by lowering and contouring and he opened the fret slots a bit. Lastly, he reworked the fret ends. The guitar now plays like butta'. I love the slightly chunky neck... mine has some really nice flame. The locking tuners are great and the EMGs are insane. With a bit of a tweak, this guitar is positively killer... one of my favorites.
