I've been playing a js100BK for 3 years now, and I like it very much, except for 1 thing: the LO-TRSII trem! Since the day I bought it (new), I've had a number of problems with it
1) it won't stay in tune --> after the guy in the local store checked it out, I figured the knife-edges were totaly dead, so it would'nt return to zero anymore! It seemed the trem studs dug their way far to much into the baseplate of the trem! He said it wouldn't help much if he'd sharpen the knife-edges, because the steel was so soft, the problem would return very soon!
2) the high E and B strings created multiple grooves in their saddles and sometimes, when I bend a note, the string slips into another groove. This creates an annoying sqeaking noise, or a sitar-like sound wich irritates me very much!
Now my question is: do all Lo-TRSIIs have this problem (soft steel or something?), or is it just my unit? I'm very much thinking of buying a JS1000 with a LO-PRO, but they are very hard to find second hand, here in the Netherlands... I would very much like to know what other peoples experiences are with LO-TRSII on a JS100. Maybe I 'abuse' it too much or something...
