Hi all,
a question from a newbie here!

I've just got a cheap guitar similar in design to a suhr Guthrie Govan signature which seems good but there is an issue with the strings alignment on the fretboard. At the nut end the strings are centred but down at the 24th fret the high e string is almost falling off the fretboard. Also the low e string now leaves a big gap to the fretboard edge.

So the question is what is the best way to fix this?

I'm thinking it should be possible to remove the wilkingson bridge, fill the 2 holes for bridge height/tremolo pivot posts. Then redrill the post holes a few mm toward the low e string side. finally refit the tremolo bridge.

Any advise/tips etc would be great, many thanks in advance,
Cheers

Pictures would help here, it might actually be better to reset the neck if it's a bolt-on. But depends just how much things are mis-aligned by. (Of course they're centred at the nut, that's what it's for :) )
