Jem7VWH GROSS STRING BREAKAGE problems
I have a 2000 Jem7VWH which I bought last October so i've had the guitar just over a year. I bought the guitar used but the use was very minimal.
Ever since i've had this guitar, with moderate use, the strings wouldn't even last 2 weeks. I was never a heavy tremolo user. Just bending and picking. The strings that normally break are the High E and B strings.
Every time I would break a string or change a string, I would sand the saddles out making sure there are no sharp edges.
I recently bought an S540LTD. It came with a cosmo black Edge. I replaced the Lo Pro from my 7V with the Edge and the problem with frequent string breakage persisted.
I am running out of patience with this guitar's high maintenence and constant string breakage. Does anyone else have problems with string breakage like this? I have heard of people with Jems that have string life of 5 months with fairly heavy use.
