Taking strings off jem 7vwh?
Hi everyone, I feel like a real Noob asking this question lol. But the frets on my Jem 7VWH need cleaned a polished pretty badly so I plan to take that on this weekend. I'm going to use painters tape to completely cover the fretboard (other than the frets of course), and use 0000 grade steel wool and a polishing agent to get the frets nice and shiny again. Obviously to do this its necessary to take the strings off the guitar, but I have read many places that its not a good idea to take all of the strings off these Jems. I assume its because the necks are thinner than most standard guitars so you have to keep the tension as uniform as possible? Anyway just wanted your feedback on this issue, I mean I'm sure its not a good idea to take the strings off for long periods of time, or very often. But there shouldnt be any danger in having them off for a half hour to an hour while I work on the frets right? Thanks for your advice guys, normally this is something I would just go forward with without even asking, but I love this guitar so I want to do it right. Thanks!
