    Those compensated saddles will sit slightly different with 2 strings over them rather than one.

    so the red should have come up in the print.

    That is rather interesting.
    I don't see any 24.75" 'F' style necks listed in the Pitbull 'Necks' section.
    Would be keen to create a 'Mustang' style guitar if they were.

    cheers, Mark.

    O.K. If you insist.
    Having tried Tru-Oil on the fingerboard, I'd opt for a hard poly finish.
    Tru-Oil seems to rub off for me.
    Raw maple is too stark for my liking but each to their own.

    cheers,...

    You have more patience than me.
    I just slackened the strings, removed the plate, discarded the plastic and re-tightened it.

    Like on the Fender Squier the neck pocket is set deeper into the body
    (probably methinks to counter 'neck dive')
    Neck plate position should have been shifted to compensate.
