hi there. i've been in possession of a js6 for about 8 years now- snatched the last floor model in the store. as those of you who own it can attest, it sounds amazing. this is one guitar that ibanez REALLY did a good job on.
...except for one problem: i've never been able to keep this thing in tune for more than 5 minutes at a time. no matter how many setups, adjustments, investigations, etc., i go through, damn thing won't stay in tune. one recent guitar repairman suggests it might have to do with the neck "not having dried out enough."
i've thought about putting locking tuners to see if that corrects the problem. i've also tried looking around for replacement necks (including the ever-controversial ed roman, who seems able to do it for a steep fee and unabashed ibanez opinions).
any recommendations? any thoughts? anyone else suffering the same problem on their guitar (js
)? it kills me that a guitar this good has to have this fatal flaw, and 8 years later, i'm tired of it. this guitar should be a main axe, and it's not.
