Thx guys, I'm happy it worked out fine :toast

Been playing it all day yesterday and it feels great. Extremely low action possible and stupidly easy to play with these jumbos. Just needs some fine tuning (shim removed and trem lowered accordingly, the old neck needed it) and it'll be the best Imp I had so far.

Thanks @P for the neck and Tony for the rest of the guitar :yourock

Thx, can't stop playing it, sounds as good as it looks :headbang

I'll try installing an R1 nut, I think it will feel better being that R2 is a bit too wide and hangs a bit over the edge on the thick E side. Ordered one today, should arrive in a week or so.

I wanted to offer it here in the forum for a very friendly price, but due to certain people here acting like real a-holes recently, I won't - it will go to ebay starting at 1€.

Bro, don't get frustrated just because there has been more know-it-all atmosphere around here recently. It will pass.
I love the looks of that burst body, wish I was in better shape for cash and I would make you an offer for it.

Bad mood right now, also for other reasons. We'll see.
