Re: So I just have bad luck with Jems/Pia?
I've owned several Jems, 1 J-Custom and a few of the Prestige 3120 guitars and all were superb with 1 exception; My 10th Anniversary. The frets were all over and it drove me crazy until I brought it to a good luthier. He diagnosed it as the unfinished(barely finished) neck had enough expansion and contraction through seasonal changes(in New England) was causing the frets to come loose. He went thru and glued them all down, and from then on, it was perfect(sure wish I still had it......)
