Hey RG, it could also be the neck angle  :dunno: , though you luthier guy should have been able to tell you that

Well yeah...

It's a "new" tune because I just finished tracking it today.
But I wrote that bitch some 15 years ago at the very least.
It was first intended to be played on guitar...But I finally opted to do it on violin.  >:D
So I used my new DualKlonz amp from Joyo on the JCM800 setting.
Sounds quite good if you ask me.  :thumb-up:
What d'ya think?

I don't know why you wouldn't wanna use the Viper....It's light, and sounds big.
It's mainly because my main rig is made out of my Rozon 3 channel preamp coupled with an MP-1...
But I fear not, the Viper will be used eventually. It's written in the sky.  :banana-upsidedown:

Yeah, it was much quieter... it didn't sound good. I'll try returning it (I'm not using it ;)

Just wait until I pair the Viper with the G-System.

No kidding! I'm ready to go too. That thing is so clean, it looks brand new.

For $65? Fuggettaboutit.

Wholly Moly..my dream gadget....the G-System. Already on my 2nd Nova System, I am a big fan of TC Electronic gear. The Nova Drive is great too (sounds very organic for a non-tube OD).

Some guy was selling this G-System on Craigslist for $500. I didn't have that much, but I had a little over half of it saved up in gig money and I had a Peavey 1x12 tube combo to trade along with it, and he took it. He even threw in a Boss FV500H Volume/Expression pedal!

Now the bad...I have no idea how to work this thing. I'm going to be reading for a WHILE.

Very nice indeed kind of funny ive been researching those burnys as a les paul alternative. I have all Ibanez rgs but have always wanted a les paul. I have never played a burny but have heard only great things. Congratulations!
I own a few actual Gibbys and then started trying out the "legit copies".
I have a limited opinion about the coopies because it is just stupid to generalize guitar quality of a whole company's production just out of one (Or very few) guitar(s).
But from what I bought so far:

Tokai: Well done. Indonesian version (Not MIJ). Good LP for a good price.
Bacchus (MIJ): Beautifully done, but a bit weak tonewise.
Burny: Real good. Great value. I don't mind it not being a Gibson.
Orville (MIJ): The real deal. Exactly like a Gibson in every way. Same soul.

I have already had my luthier guy look it twice and this time it has come back better but still unplayable for me on those last frets.

The initial issue began with the guitar choking out on those frets and I kept raising the action to try help the problem but of course it just made everything unplayable.  So I took it to my guy and he through some fancy filing got the frets to allow for the notes to ring out much better and sustain for a lot longer.  That it great!  But I still can't play those frets.
...

Did you (or your luthier guy) check the neck relief/bow (Truss Rod). Seasons and different locations with their different temperatures and humidities have a certain impact on the neck and its relief or bow. So before filing and stuff I'd try to get it back to normal with some truss rod adjustments. No rocket science behind it all.

Another problem could be those last frets having their tangs come out of the fretboard. This can easily be rectified by re-seating them (google it....easy fix)

If you take the file to the frets, make your luthier give the guitar a complete fret level and -dress.

Twisting/warping of the neck could be another culprit, but I'd consider shaving/sanding down the fretboard as a penultimate final resort.

If youŕe absolutely happy with the guitar as a whole, bite the bullet and have a good luthier do a complete refret with either Jescar EVO or Stainless Steel frets. It's well worth the investment and will take your guitar to another level.
