Jem control layout

Does anybody else not like where the 5-way switch is on the Jem? I have just started playing one after playing the S-series and JS guitars and the 5-way switch gets in the way of my picking hand. I am constantly hitting the switch inadvertantly. Anybody else have this problem?

Re: Jem control layout

Seems like the volume control would be in the way before the 5-way switch would be...

EDIT: Well, maybe not, but still, the switch is really not close to the strings, my picking hand never gets that far down. Besides, how different is the position of the switch compared to an S that it would be more of a problem with the Jem?

Hmmmm, Maybe it is because I fan my fingers out when I play, like george lynch, as opposed to picking with my hand in a fist. Doesn't seem to be a problem with the S guitar. It is only an issue when using the neck pickup.
