Uneven frets 2021 models, St Vincent Goldie
When I first got my STV Goldie, it had a number of uneven frets. Annoying for sure, but at least relatively simple to fix (I do a lot of my own maintenance, but I did give EBMM a head’s up, offered to take it in under warranty. I declined and they sent me some swag.). But I was talking to a couple of other people who either bought a Goldie or tried one out with the intention of buying. Another owner had uneven frets, a shop owner had to send another one back for neck problems. Just wondering if any other Goldie owners had an issue with uneven frets and if it’s been a problem on other models this year as well. Could all be purely coincidental and I could have just been one of and talked to a couple other of the only buyers out of dozens with problems.
That said, I still can’t quite get audible buzz free play at factory specs. High E and B strings are at just a tick above 4/64, G and D between 4 and 5, A at 5, and low E between 5 and 6. Relief between .010 and .020. Granted, I’m a little heavy handed and use heavier picks but I also play with 11-50’s in standard tuning.
