I seem to have a problem with my JS1000 BTB where when I lower the pitch using the arm, it won't go all the way down 'till the strings are 'flapping in the breeze' like my other Floyd-equipped guitars do, because the arm hits the body and won't travel down any further.
In addition there's very little clearance between the volume pot and the underneath of the trem arm when it's in the normal (i.e. resting) playing position - about 2mm or so. And in fact if I use the trm arm from my RG520qs in the JS
then the arm actually connects with the top of the pot as it's moved across.
I remember reading somewhere that Joe likes to have his trem arms bent in a particular way, and was wondering if Ibanez supplies similar spec arms with the JS
series, if so then maybe I got a 'regular' arm (bought my JS
second-hand)? Or maybe all you JS
players out there have the same issue?
I'm happy with the other setup aspects of my trem & action which seem pretty 'on spec' as per the Ibanez manual.
What do you reckon folks?
