I had a couple minor issues with the Tremonti I picked up at Experience. The neck pickup seemed a little muddy. Some things just didn't sound good. Something felt off. So, new strings. Same gauge, but I set the intonation, which was surprisingly off. I'd adjusted the pickup and asked PTC if I was on the right track with that (Matt said yes - thus proving the bit about the blind squirrel). BIG difference. The neck pickup sounded like it had life I hadn't felt before. Only had about 10 minutes to play since everyone else had gone to bed. It's cool how much difference something little like that can make!
