Just got a new guitar i am know expert on build but shouldnt the bottoms of the bridge grips be level with the board it much the same on the other side too? Should i take it back ?

Your english is very poor.

I can see that the bridge bushings are coming out of the guitar and it shouldn't be like that. Fixing that is very easy, but if you can take it back, I would.

I think those may come out more over time, especially under tension from being tuned up. Take it back to the shop before you try to fix it yourself. If the drilled the holes for the bridge wrong, it may be more than you want to get into.

Many guitar designs with fixed bridges have the bridge slanted or stepped so that the distance from nut to bridge is larger for thick strings. The Tune-o-matic extends this idea to make the distance adjustable for all the strings, within limits.

As long as it is playing ok you should be fine but if you feel it needs an adjustment and you are not comfortable doing it yourself i suggest letting a tech set it up for you.

Hope this helps.

I appreciate that, but it doesn't help if people cannot translate their speech properly.

How hard is it to figure out what he meant? not hard at all you are just being rude.

No I'm not. I also find it ironic that your post is grammatically poor too.

I'm just telling the guy that his English isn't very good, which makes it difficult to understand what he is talking about. He uses entirely the wrong words in places, he misses words out in his sentences and his grammar is all over the place.

Maybe if I tell him, he might not make the same mistakes again.

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.

How is he being rude?

Is informing someone that their communication is hard to understand and that details may be lost in translation now considered rude?

It's rude that he even mentioned it! if it was a problem for him then he should move on to a thread he can understand.

So telling someone you're trying to help out that you can't understand them is rude?

Sorry about my poor English I will try better for everyone on this thread ,

Also thanks for the help I just wanted to be sure as i dont know much about how a guitar should be built, but i did think it looked strange with the grips that high from the body, this guitar has to travel quite far but i don't want a guitar that is new that might have problems . By the sound of what some people are saying i have a case to send it back so i will contact the seller and show him the pics and see what they say.

If he can't understand him then why bother responding? seriously get a grip.

Then YOU posted THIS grammatical nonsense: "He uses entirely the wrong words in places, he misses words out in his sentences and his grammar is all over the place."

Honestly his post was easier to read than that mess right there. Step down off of your soapbox and stop being a jerk to people.

So you call the guy out for his grammar and then you follow that up with total nonsense of your own? i'm calling chump.

How on earth can you even mention his grammar after posting that nonsense? see, my point is that not everyone has a good command of English, including YOU, so instead of popping off about it just move along.

So the jerk responds with an insult and does not even attempt to answer the question and you call me a troll? uh-huh, i know who the troll is. Point is he had no business calling anyone out for poor grammar when his grammar is ten times worse.

SMH.
