this is my Js
custom paint job by me. black sparkle and clear sparkle from auto zone.
things i would do better:
-wet sand base coat
-wet sand and buff clear coat more before putting it all back together.
beacuse it didnt do this, the guitar looks silver from the crowd but is good with all the lights on it.
very attractive color! got lots of complaments from chick and accredited musicians.
The pick ups are neck-59 and bridge is a pearly gates. Great combo!
the strings are the "glow in the black light" strings
-coating dosent get on your fingers
-no reasonance rating 3/10
-not good harmonics rating 4/10. really have to work at it
-coating comes off in 8 hours of straight play. (2 gigs, 8 40 min sets, 1 hour set up time)
-dont stretch em' ! i usually stretch my D'Addario's but when i did it to these, i could not get it in tune to save my life!
- coating starts to wear off first in the picking area
- then the coating wears off on the fretboad by the frets
- need A LOT of blacklight to make it good for a show
so for one show, (not an important one) i would suggest these. but have a back up guitar!
my only problem with my JS
-100 is that the guitar will go flat when i come back from a dive bomb. i have to do the floyd rose pull up to get it to set right. i put a brand new floyd rose on it and new bridge pins and still have the problem. had it professionaly set up and still same problem.
long story short. i dont play this one as much as i play my Jem7vwh.
