First off, you are the kind of poster that makes me look civil, so I suppose I should thank you for that. The abr type you show is a copy on a copy guitar so there's the answer to that one. Although the Nashville is placed backwards, I would think it should function acceptably if correctly adjusted.
2004 is not exactly "modern" but I own similar instruments with no such issues. Perhaps it is just your karma.
2008 SG Classic Nashville, as shipped from vendor and then intonated for 9-42 strings
2005 Epiphone SG deluxe abr-1intonated for 9-42 strings
I have about a dozen other examples that look the same.
Location, location,location ........
The number one reason everybody complains about how sh*tty the Japanese copies were that they learned on ......................because the bridge is in the wrong place. They just don't know it
And thats pretty much the way the bridge saddles look on all of my Les Paul Standards.
That's what was probably my 75 Electra LP problem...remembering that reminds when they came out with on-board effects...wtf was that all about?
It was the 70s
Electronic-anything was WHOA, advanced, man
It was their way of trying to establish a foothold in Gibson's premium price bracket, as an MIJ brand that offers something beyond quality immitations
The 75c setup on a Hondo LP (sometimes it's 50c, but usually 75)
Man, that one was bad.
It looks worse than it was . The original configuration had those big posts n bushings ,hence the large plugs. But anyhow off is OFF
I ended up using that guitar at Jazzfest that year , before I gave it to the bass player for his birthday
With the exception of the head stock decal, that is the spitting image of my old one, I had put a dimarzio super 2 in the bridge, cannot remember who I sold it to! Cheers Mitch
Your Nashville is on backwards.
And it does make a difference. Check the bevels on the saddles.
I think that's the point of this thread.....maybe
It's that you need to do that to even come close to intonation, ive had to do it and look at Alvins guitar before he fixed it, same deal.
I've seen it, and a few of the guitars were not cheap.
