My First JEM - JEM90HAM - Breaking in the beast
It's been a while dreaming but I finally bought a JEM. I picked it up for a good price I think - $3100 Australian dollars ($US1550).
I won't rave about how good it looks and feels but I have a couple of questions on breaking it in and setting up.
The action seems a little bit high - from the 12th fret up this affects playing. I noticed the bridge does not sit level with the body. It sits up about 6-7mm measured from the apex benath the the fine tuners. I read here that the JEM90's locking nut saddle may be overshimmed slightly.
Is this normal? What changes can anyone recommend doing on the guitar to start with?
By the way, how many JEM90's were made all up? I am not planning on locking this up as a collectable at all but would be interested to know.
