I apologize for my rant, but mean what I say.  It's not opinion when it comes to shims - it's fact.  And I may have bee harsh on Mr westbone - so I apologize there as well.  I will make a new neck for this 12 string to make it properly.  Maybe not soon, but when it is done I will post the results. 

I'll be done here after.

Don't diss the humble shim it's a necessary tool in the guitar trade!

So you have a guitar that doesn't need one. The guitar sets up and plays well, fantastic!
Then you have a guitar that needs a shim. The guitar sets up plays well, fantastic. Providing the shim is installed correctly never a problem.

Just for the record I've been a guitar tech for over 30 odd years and the guitars you see on here that I own are just a smidgin of my collection. As for your comment on average/cheap guitars I'm not a headstock snob and know a decent guitar when I play/see one.
Telecters are not exactly rocket science but they look fine and I agree if you don't need a shim very good. Guitars are not rocket science! 

Happy New Year.

FFS, take a step back, eh?! Yes, Pat arced up a bit, but there was provocation and he had the grace to publicy apologise.

As I read the postings, you were at cross purposes anyway; you were banging on about shims on mass produced guitars and he was talking about bespoke instruments and his desire to make his as perfect as he could; no dramas there, as far as I could see.

I've edited the personal comments out but left the tenor of the post as it is; let's agree to disagree and move on, please!

That's drawing a pretty long bow, man; you're saying that my guitar that put food on table for many years is not a good guitar because it has a neck shim?! Hmmmmm.....

Like I said in reply to Damian, I reckon you blokes are at cross purposes.... he's talking about mass produced, and you're talking about custom builds; worlds, nay universes, apart in terms of initial purchase price!

The fact that Gibson can charge whatever they like is more about player conservatism rather than anything else!!
