My first Jem! My first problem! - it was going so well...
Hi, I finally got my first Jem today. After what seems like an age of listening to Steve and coming here and drooling over these legendary beasts, it's finally here. It's a Jem10, very nice indeed.
However, it's driving me crazy!! I would appreciate any advice.
I'm no stranger to Floyd Rose guitars and I can set them up no worries, but oh man this is killing me. I'm getting the nastiest buzz from the trem whenever I play anything past fret 5. Initially I had to raise the trem a little because I was getting a little fret noise, but now this horrid buzzing sounds like Steve put in a commemorative 10th anniversary beehive behind the unit. Oh mercy me!
I've read the setup pages on this site, and I fully understand them and they have proven useful (good job to the authors, btw) but this ain't good. Brand new strings (.009s) installed by the previous seller. I stretched them in, like a good little boy. I even let the axe rest for a while following transit despite the fact it was calling my name all day.
Take care, and now I'm part of the club, where do I go for my free Carvin Legacy?
101 Thanks in advance.
