My MIJ Fender 52RI came in this morning. It looks cool as hell (with the foto flame neck) and it has promise, but it's not doing that great just yet. I just ordered a Dimarzio T bridge pup to replace the stock one (the stock is pretty low output, pretty thin) and I already have a US Fender 52RI neck pup to install as well. I hope the wiring is okay, but I'm sure a future upgrade of a nice prewired control plate might be in order. Something is up with the G string. The strings (10-46) seem newer, but it's dead when played open. When fretted it's okay, just when it's played open it's pinched/dead which leads me to believe it may be a nut issue? Plus, some chords (G for example) are out of tune a bit even when the guitar itself is dead on. I also ordered a Joe Barden Vintage bridge with compensated brass saddles (I hate the bridge on here now, it's horrible). I'm wondering if anyone knows if this is a direct replacement on an MIJ Tele? I've used the JB bridge in the past and it's great. As usual, I probably paid a little too much considering upgrades in this one but if it comes together it will be pretty sweet. I'm worried about the G string issue, I fear I might at least have to take it in for a pro setup (more $$$) because I don't know how to do nut work at all and don't want to screw that up. Any ideas? Thanks!
