Finally I got my hands on one..
Iíve Been trying to spot one with a good price under 100 usd but that was nearly impossible, usually the price was in the 200 usd range..
So I kept raiding Jem sellers on Reverb with private messages asking them if they are interested in selling the Backstop alone.
Most of them agreed but they asked 200-250 for it.
till a few weeks back this man agreed ..and all what he asked for was a 100 usd. even though he was a vintage guitar seller and he know what that actually worth for.
He informed that the backstop is fully functional which was installed on an 87 jem I guess.
The only problem with it is that it needed some cleaning (check the pics and let me know how do you suggest to clean this) and the rubber pad was missing.
- do you think thatís a problem?
- can I just install the Backstop without the rubber pad?
- or I might use the square rubber pads the came with the esp arming adjuster since I have a couple of those.
So.. Now what I need to know is this: as Iím going to set that backstop itís gonna load some counter tension on the springs and that for sure would effect the the neck relief in some way or another.. so in what order the set up should go?
For my own opinion, I think it should go like this :
1-Install the backstop and set it up ( let is settle for a day or two)
2-Check the neck relief and do any necessary adjustments if needed
What do you think ?
leave any comments or advice and about how to set the backstop and how to set the the guitar after I install the backstop, I know this is a matter of taste.. as most of us play their guitars in different settingsÖbut just share your thoughts with me and Iím sure they gonna be a lot helpful
