jem77fp question

I was wondering if you guys/gals know if a pick guard warping on the JEM happens?
I had my jem77FP in my server room which stays warm but I didn't think it was to hot and when I went to go take it out of the case I seen the Pick Guard swelled up in the middle. (PICS) It was in there for the winter about 4 months.

I am leaving it out of the server room now trying to get the pick guard to go back against the body and shrink but don't think it is going to happen.
If I need to buy another clear guard does Ibanez still make them in clear to fit this model?

New guard won't matter, the body shrank. The only cure is humidity, and don't let it shrink again.

Re: jem77fp question

One more question for you Rich
Should I just let natural humidity get to it slowly or should I run a humidifier or shower lol.
First time this ever happened to me so no idea what I am suppose to do.
I was saving this one to be willed to one of my sons when I am gone and I seem to be destroying it

It doesn't need a shower. How fast is up to you. Obviously the natural humidity it's getting is not enough.

Wow, that's a first. I've seen sharp fret ends but never a buckled pickguard
