Re: Ibanez Pia weird issues

You might have some frets popping up, I had similar issue and had to tap a few frets down. use a straight edge with the neck totally flat if not obviously popping up to find the culprits.

Re: Ibanez Pia weird issues

Nobody should be surprised any guitar needs a fret level out of the box. Nothing is immune, it's wood.

Tapping frets down MOST of the time just creates another low spot you can chase all over the neck. Spot level with 400 grit wrapped on any straight flat anything. I use a radius block but a straight 8" piece of 1x4 is just as good.

Re: Ibanez Pia weird issues

Nice collection. How would you describe the difference between your Jem and the Pia, if there is any?
