    Update:

    I am just too busy to go to GC right now but having that beautiful guitar just sitting there is more than I can take so last night I changed the strings counting on GC liberal return policy to keep me safe.
    The strings were most defiantly not 9s more like 11s the 9s i put on fit nicely in the nut slots with really low action, I had to lossen the claw screws by about 4 full turns to float the system at the specked 1/16 of an inch.

    After letting it sit over night the Low E and A strings still buzz, the E from the 5th fret to about the 10th.The neck appears to be dead straight so later today I will loosen the truss rod an 1/8 of a turn. I also see that the Low E saddle is all the way down(something that would never work with a Strat) if after the truss rod adjustment I still get buzzing I will raise it slightly. I suspect that adjusting the truss rod will fix the buzzing of the A string.

    Thanks for the well wishes of my Dad, having your parents age is no fun try to appreciate them while you have them.

    I believe the guitar should play just fine with a proper set up for the strings gauge you're using.

    Best wishes to your dad!

    Ha! You're right. Maybe even more!

    Your use of it was clearly to throw it in Jamie's face. So this response is lame as hell.

    "All I did was..." use hostility and sarcasm to attack the mods.

    And now, you're playing the innocent victim? Gimme a break.

    I don't always agree with the mods. We've had plenty of disagreements, and from time to time, I get put in my place. That's OK. They're my friends still. Sometimes they happen to be right.

    You might also want to double check the string heights for all the strings - a guide to stock setup is here::

    I'm sure that guitar just needs a little love.... as does the rest of this thread.

    Congrats on a beautiful guitar, I love my SE CU24! (it needed a little love too.)

    All I did was offer the guy an alternative site where he could discuss the gig bag issue and vent without being persecuted. Just sharing my opinion with HIM shouldn't be cause for others to come at me with guns blazing. That only proves my point, dissenting opinions are trampled with haste and vitriol.

    I should have PM'd him, my mistake. Apologies to all who were offended by my post.
    How's the view from up on that cross?

    As I told Les, I was just giving the guy another place to vent about the gig bag where he wouldn't feel like people were hating on him. Now that so many grown adults were offended by that, better judgement would have been to PM. It is however, ridiculous that you translated my post into "bashing PRS as a company," and essentially accused me of such. It's ok though, I don't get angry over stuff like this and I hope you don't either. It's not worth it.
    Funny how you ignored all of your bashing "clique mentality", "ass kissing", "fanboys", Being "attacked/shunned" comments... So you threw a few folks a bone...

    Remember the first rule of holes...
