Re: Problems with ne Jem7VWH's
Mine is fine - perfect really - apart from needing to replace the volume pot after less than a week when it seized up. Also the pickup selector needs to be replaced - it doesn't 'catch' on each setting, if ya know what I mean, moving almost like a slider with a few little bumps along the way, instead of a good sturdy toggle switch. But it still works so I won't bother changing it until I give her another setup. As I've previously ranted, I bought 3 new Ibanezes this year and had the same volume pot problem, but the VWH is the only one with a pickup switch doing this.
I've only ever played one other VWH at a store to compare it to (they're quite rare in Australia - it seems stores don't like to buy them for inventory very often, only as a special order for a customer) and it was set up too poorly to judge its structural quality in the brief time I had with it.
