Dissappointing

I am a fan of 'Chappers' and enjoy his Youtube stuff - a very talented player and good at what he does.So....let's try one of his guitars. The spec. looks good and there are positive reviews around. Service great from thomann - no problems there. The guitar arrived well packed. Get out of the box and see straight away the neck has bowed forward quite a lot. Action at 12th fret is about 10 or 11mm - not acceptable. There are some instructions from Chapman Guitars saying..'if the neck is bowed, just give the double truss rod a tweak and this will put the neck back in correct position. No need to adjust the string height'. Tried that, no good really, just a slight improvement. Plugged in and the tuning is way out and takes an age to get in standard tuning. Won't stay in tune very long, the low E, G & B keep going out. Not keen on the pickup sound - seems to have a 'hollowed' out sound (through a H&K) and there is a horrible vibration in the bridge area when strumming. Kept trying it for a few days, no improvement and just really starts to be a pain and just think this is not worth the money. Disappointing. Sent back for refund. Was this guitar checked at any time by the factory or thomanns? If so, it should have been sorted.

Great guitar but some minor upgrades needed

The guitar is very nice. It has surprisingly very heavy body. The top veneer is also nicely figured, but you can see that it is really just less then a mm thick...

Neck is very comfortable with huge nickel frets.

The original nut has very tight slots and the strings got stuck in them causing tuning issues.

Pickups sounds nice and I could get very nice sparkling tones from them (using the push pull with middle position).
Most of the screws are made of not very strong material.

There are some issues with the guiltar, but all of them are possible to solve with an easy and relatively cheap upgrades:

Replace the string trees with: https://[LINK]

Replace the nut with https://[LINK]

Replace the tremollo mounting screws with https://[LINK] (they are also not ideal, but best I've found)

Most of the people also replace the humbucker with a Seymour Duncan one. I went for TB-6 (Distortion). Note that you have to switch the black and green wire (use the green as hot wire) to not have it out of phase in combined positions.
