The only thing so far that is a bit of a negative is that I'm not able to get the action as low as I'd like before it gets string buzz really bad, so the action is a bit higher on this than my other guitars.


I find the same thing with the shorter scale length. I believe your other geets are all 25 1/2 scale, and the Prophecy is 24 3/4?? The action is a bit more "floppy" at the same gauge, so that might be where you are picking up some buzz. My Dean and Gibson (24 3/4) are also a bit higher than my Strat (25 1/2).

This is just a [u]feature[/u] of the shorter scale. :)
...so ever since then, I always hang on to the buckle.
