Hi, new membere here.
I bought a PS7200 in the Spring of 2008, and liked it so much that I bought a really nice PS9000 on ebay about 5 months ago.
It's black with cream binding. It was used, but showed little evidence of wear and tear. The guy was a collector and said he was just downsizing.
I gave it a fret polish, once over clean and new strings, and it looked like quite a grand edition to my stable.
But when I tried to intonate, I had to keep moving the bridge saddles way up towards the body. In fact the d and g saddles had to go as far as they could, and the g could have used a little more.
I have a couple of dozen guitars and never had that problem before.
Then I saw the dvd that came with Dan Erlewine's Guitar Player's Repair Guide (3rd edition), and he showed a guitar with a similiar issue, and said that the factory must have installed the bridge posts in the wrong place.
If that is the case with my USA built PS9000, I will not be very impressed.
Any thoughts ?
