So this EVH strat in @shroprockdoctor initially for tuning instability issues related to use of the Floyd Rose was addressed by installing a new bone nut as opposed to the supplied Floyd locking nut as the neck doesn’t easily lend itself to the seating of a nut of those proportions. Following the nut installation a setup was carried out greatly improving the action & making the guitar much more playable.
The new issue arose trying to set intonation because the marriage of the body & Fender neck is incorrect. The neck heel is 0.064″ smaller than the pocket in the body & the scale length is incorrect & beyond adjustable range of the saddles of the Floyd Rose.
The only real solution is to plug the old screw holes (all 8) & shim the neck heel all around better securing it & pushing the nut a little further from the bridge so correcting the scale length.
Well that’s the plan.
