Tents set up for Berwyn Brew Fest! We will be pouring from 1-5p @flapjackbrewery #brewfest #brewing #beer #fantasmo #boltneck

Psst, hey! Hey you! Do me a favor: take a look at the neck of your F-style, bolt-neck guitar. Does it look like the picture on the left? Reason I ask is, that's no good.
I've seen it time and time again, a common issue that arises with bolt-neck guitars where the neck is tilted in favor of one E over the other. When the neck isn't properly aligned, it can put one E string way too close to the edge of the fretboard, causing it to fall right off any time you fret. Intonation also suffers, and in some cases, will be impossible to correct like on this J.Mascis model with the TOM bridge.
Now, this doesn't mean your guitar is broken, it's quite easy to fix: simply hold the guitar against you with one hand on the body and one hand on the neck. Then, give the guitar a quick, light pull toward you in the direction you'd like the neck to go—in this case, with the low E facing you. After, tighten the neck bolts, which will likely be too loose in their new position. Presto!
If that doesn't take, shimming around the neck pocket can work wonders for this one, inserting wood veneer – or in a pinch, cut-up picks – in the pocket where you want the neck to shift away from. Here, I'd shim at the butt-end of the neck on the treble side as well as along the low E side of the neck below the screw. That will physically restrict a wandering neck from moving into those areas again.
And that's your Tuesday Tip™

Proof a 22 year old Ryan Reynolds was Deadpool before Wolverine: Origins was even made 😂 #RyanReynolds #EdwardScissorhandsmeetsFrankensteinmeetsChildsplay #Boltneck #bigmonsteroncampus #mancrushmonday

More Epiphone! Much Japan! Many Wows! #doge #Epiphone #VintageAcoustic #eastnashville #boltneck #Norlin

This is BoltNeck '00, starring Matthew Lawrence (Mrs DoubtFire, The Hotchick). BoltNeck is a very fun in the style of 'Frankenweenie', teen film. Def appropriate for Halloween! Loved it. #BoltNeck 🔩
