I have a few long reach t-handle hex wrenches that are way more efficient than taking a shortish Allen key , though I think those short keys probably saved more than wrecked necks.

I also despise when folks don't use the proper flat-head screwdriver to adjust a trussrod. I've seen so many chewed up and broken nuts because of that.

This is what happens when a Grail body gets stuck in a conveyor belt at the Philadelphia post office. It arrives with the horn sticking out of the box. Not to mention belt rash.

Wasn't a problem though. It needed a full restoration anyway after it was butchered by previous owners. Some of you might remember this guitar on the old forum. I like scalloped potatoes, but not necks.

I strum, therefore, I can't shred!

I don't know. This was 3 to 4 years ago. Traded it to a guy for other Kramer stuff. I don't know if he ever finished it.

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.
