'91 Chaparall questions.
johanvg posted a question in Ask the HFC ExpertsHello, I just bought this '91 Chaparall. The guitar has a solid flamed maple body, rosewood fingerboard, sustainiac GA 2, SD JB in the bridge and a SD SSL1 in the middle, gold hardware Schaller FR tremolo bridge. The guitar comes with a R2 nut and seems a bit narrow is this normal, I think a R3 might be better fit? When setting up the guitar the bridge raises fairly high and gives more of a Les Paul type of feel instead of a Strat. It looks a bit awkward with the tremolo routing. There is no neck shim in the neck pocket. Can you tell me which model this is? Could this have been a custom ordered one? I am also thinking about replacing the bridge with a new Schaller Tonemeister tremolo but I am afraid this might brighten the maple body too much, any advice. I always liked the feel of a OFR better then a Standard Schaller. Thanks Greetings from Belgium
