How accurate their claims about the change in top bracing eliminating the eventual shift in geometry has yet to be seen, but the top bracing is NOT the same as the standard joint that does effect neck angle over the long haul.

Well… they failed then.

Thank you for all of your replies on this. I was tempted to tighten the bolt a tiny bit to see if it would change the angle in a positive way, but since there isn’t “a gap between the heel and the body” as John Arnold mentioned...I figured I’d better leave it alone. I did change the strings out as well as bathed it in a ToneRite treatment for 2 weeks and that did help the overall sound quiet a bit. In the end I’ve decided to return it even though the store was very nice saying they’d reimburse me towards getting a reset.
