Nice catch, we don't see many of these guitars here! I suspect it was inspired by Santana's Yamaha SG2000.

Messing with the action trying to cover up an intonation problem isn't a good idea, I'd try first to change the strings, especially if they are old.

That's strange on their website they claim that the gold fret wire isn't plated but solid throughout. Maybe they painted the neck with the frets on and they forgot to clean them? :confused:
