HI everyone, i should start off by saying that i'm new to this forum, and also fairly new to guitar.

So down to business: i just brought home an epiphone les pual studio deluxe, and noticed that the bridge appears to be crooked. This is my first les pual so for all I know this could be the way it should be. However, i was hoping that somebody more knowledgeable than myself could tell me if this is a problem or not.

any help is appreciated
Thanks, Bowen

Yup, supposed to be crooked. It's about my Iceman has the same bridge.

Explanation is that it's for string intonation. The lower strings need a bit more space between the bridge and the nut to be the right pitch at each fret.

Yep, that's normal. It's to compensate a little more for intonation.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
