Hi, I'm new to this forum thing. I have an Encore S.G copy - not a real S.G. so I'm hoping you guys will help me out with a cupple of things. I got it a few years ago and it's always had something wrong with it. Tuning problems, frett buzz, I had to set the action real high to minimise the buzz and I had to fix the pickup selector a while back. Hey' I knew it was a cheap guitar and I bought it just to have a different sound from my other guitars. It has "Wilkinson Guitar Tech" Humbucker pickups which actually have a good tone. I didn't expect much - just for it to be playable...not how it's turned out. I took it to a cupple of shops to get some help from more experienced people and everyone said that it had a twisted neck. Ok, so I'm looking for replacement a neck for my S.G copy. So I took the original neck off and I discovered a cupple of problems. 1. Two of the neck holes drilled into the body are too large for the screws so the neck wasn't secured to the body properly. That's probably why it never stays in tune. 2. The neck has a "step" cut into it at the heel. The neckplate screws go through the neck and into 2 small metal bars which sit on top of the stepped heel (there are pockets cut into the heel) these hold the neck pickup in place. I don't know if this is a common design on all S.G. type guitars or if it's an innovation by this particular company but I can't find any neck to fit my S.G copy. All I've been able to find are Chinese necks which are too thin for the neck pocket to fit. There'd be a gap of about 1cm between the heel and the pocket. I know it's just a cheap guitar but I like how it sounds when it's tuned up and I'd like to save it if I can. Without spending too much money. So I'm sorry for such a long post but could anyone help please?
