Should be ok as long as the holes match up and the saddles are in pretty much the same spot.

Should be somewhere in the neighborhood of 5/64ths of an inch on the bass side. That's about 2mm measured from the crown of the fret.

How heavy are your strings? After extended periods of playing, my thumb "locks up" for lack of a better term. That's extended periods, several songs or more than an hour of playing.

Yeah, he's out. Is it possible for you guys to go acoustic? Maybe you can just play chords and the rest of the band can take up some slack, make it happen?

Yeah, you may have to read it more than once, but all the words are there that you need. Take a second and give the guy a break. Let's see how well you write something in his language.

This. This is exactly my "schedule" too. It will happen to all of you who practice for multiple hours a day as well. Enjoy your regular practice now. I am lucky if I get to crank the amp once a week.
