"I was Assaulted!"

I received my Kramer Assault 220 Plus today. When I pulled it from the box the high E was broken. Not a big deal. I restring all new guitars anyway so nothing to get worked up over. The fit and finish is top notch. The fretboard is flawless and got even better after some F-ONE oil. I installed a new set of NYXL’s and immediately popped the high E with the first bend I attempted. I pulled the string block out and it had a sharp little groove worn into it that was causing the breakage. A nail file fixed that in a couple of seconds. The only real gripe I had with the guitar was the factory setup. Truss was waaaay off and the bridge was far too high. Whoever did that setup should hang his/her head in abject shame. After some massaging and tweaking I have this beast playing like my Schecter Loomis. The EMGs kick ass, the Floyd works beautifully, and all of the hardware is quite nice. I want a white one now. My wife may be planning my murder as I type this.
35 years of guitar obsession. Known to mess around with a trumpet from time to time.
