Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Can anyone give me a cheat sheet of how to setup the action on my friend's strat? I don't have access to tons of measurement tools, but I do have access to business cards. Help a brutha' out!

    print out one of those "printable" RADIUS squares. (cut it out slowly/accurately)
    lower the action to your liking using the appropriate Radius square as a guide
    if Fender says to set it a certain height, i'd get a ruler and use that as a "guideline/starting point"
    then get your tuner and set the intonation
