does anyone else notice on the edge pro's that the bushings on the bar itself wear out and cause the bar to jiggle in the hole? cause i have to replace mine about once a week and its a right pain in the @$$ (i cant often replace them though because Ibanez has difficulty understanding where Canada is...
could the harmonics issues be fixed with a well-due set-up and some new strings ?
Here check this
I haven't replaced the bushings on any of my Jems in ages. I agree that they only last about a week or so depending on how much you use the trem which is exactly why I use the D-bag or PFE tape methods
You have changed your strings.........right???
If not (after a year) then there are your harmonic problems. Worn strings rob tone, etc BIG TIME! And surely it needs a set up as well. Jems are amazing guitars, but just like any other guitar, they need to be setup properly.
I've had Vwh for dang near ten years now! She plays AMAZING and I have none of the problems you have
As far as the dead pup, it's probably just a minor wiring issue coupled with old tone dead strings.
Get a full setup!!! That should solve your problems
I certainly hope you do not still have the original strings after a year
Petie, I have not experienced the finish problems you are speaking of on any of my Jems.
Oh great....ya'll are going to give me an excuse to post pics....:O)
Here's a pair. The "white one", lol and the Vsbl 02 model.
Sorry to torture you guys....again.....:O)
I've never had any problems with my Vwh OR my Vsbl because they are properly set-up! Jems are great guitars but the factory set-up in most cases is more than lacking! Just get um set up folks and then you can experience the true quality and amazing playability of the JEM!!
