Decided to give my unused old epi G400 a new lease of life as my e-flat tuned guitar ripped off the old 10's slung on some 11's and with some truss fettling a touch of nut fileing and a spot of intonation she's playing a dream loving the extra chunkyness of the 11's!!
Often find that awesome bedroom or home tone just doesn;t cut throught the mix when playing with a band purely because the frequencies your using are the same ones everyone else has their equipment set to lol
You can super glue the chips back down with water thin superglue its relatively easy to sand it back level with the surrounding board if your careful. If you use heat to get the frets out you shouldn't get too much chip-out.
