I having trouble finding material on my issue: This is a new guitar, it played fine. I did take it out of town with me but I never left it in a car.

The string gauge is .11's

Here are my problems:
INSANE fret buzz on the low E. I did not notice it until I tuned a 1/2 step down.

When I returned to standard tuning, the fret buzz was worse and now the intonation is severely off. On the 12th fret "E", the fretting note is registering F and the harmonic is registering E

No problem with the rest of the guitar. I don't know where to adjust or how to go about it.

Edit: Here are close pictures. It' does look like I am able to adjust the string height. I just don't want to play with it until I get good advice and see a video on it.

I made a straight up trade with another guitar player. My Korean S-470 and $75 in cash for his Schecter C-1 +

Coil-Tap, mahogany body, neck-thru-body ( i think), and the most responsive pick-ups I have ever had the pleasure of using.

I have never had a guitar where I can manipulate the tone so much just from the pots on the guitar.

So in love with her and I am glad I did not get the ESP Eclipse.

My thread about my tuning issues with my LP

Will any Grovers fit? Someone was saying the "hex' style on my LP may not match the push style they have available

I am thinking about these

They put this off to the side for me at Sam Ash. I am hoping to get it around $650 because of a sale they are running.

Reasons why I want it:
Love gold-top Les Pauls
My Epiphone LP is not cutting it
I have an extra Ibanez S470 that I am selling.

Is this a good guitar to replace two of my others? I already have a 'fast' RG-570 so I don't really need the S anymore and I am thinking that this might be a step up from the Epi Les Paul.

Anyone know if Slash recorded the first two extended solo's with the Marshall Jubilee for a fact? I see that many of the line6 pod tones use the jubilee but I was curious if there is any truth to it..

Love the tone.
