2013 JEM7VWH

ive just bought from my friend this 6 months old guitar for $2500 singapore dollars..its like new with plastic cover on the pickguard and back cover...suppose to trade with my 2003 jem77fp but decided to buy his jem instead..i find that the new jem7vwh has some problem with the action...after adjusting the neck and bridge,the action is still slightly higher than normal....it came with two tremolo bar...normal whammy bar and ultralite bar...tried to intonate the guitar...but has some inaccuracy on the 6th string...

The new ones have quality issues, and the one you bought is probably no exception. If it has a warranty, se if you can get a replacement.

You have not even tried to intonate that guitar, the saddles are still in factory alignment.

The good news is I did an almost normal VWHL the weekend so there may be a few good ones [or almost normal] mixed in with the rest.

Re: 2013 JEM7VWH

It's amazing to think that when an expert here tells you to not bother with something due to quality issues that you would even go buy it! Sorry, but that was just a silly move and you'll regret it. The money could have been used on something else...

The 70V is sounding like more and more of a better deal these days.

If only it was available in a better color...

If it's still under warranty, TAKE IT BACK.

It warranty cover for electronics and electrical stuff on the guitar for one year from the date of purchase but not sure about defects on the guitar body and neck which effects intonation

Re: 2013 JEM7VWH

Yup, all wounds too far forward but of course the E and A the most out, that's definitely not a good one. Not to rub it in but I did try to warn you, and I'm definitely not making any friends in Japan when I talk about this stuff.
