    Ok, so, about 3 weeks ago I placed a bid on a JS100 on sleaz**** whilst drinking a few too many beers. Sadly enough my bid, the first and only bid on the guitar, was the winner. Yay me!!, I was saving up for a 1k or 12k. I hate beer and the ease of the internet sometimes!!! Like now!!! Now, I...

    I have a problem with my JEM and I am wondering if anybody is familiar with the problem... I have no idea what is causing it or how to fix it and its driving me nuts. The best description I can give you is that the G strings tone is different from the other strings... including the other...

    I really need to lower the action on a nice 12 string acoustic... but I've never done it before. Has anyone around here worked on one before? I'm quite adventurous, but I don't want to ruin it.

    What is the best way to get the lowest possible action without getting fret buzz on a 7v? The action my 7v from fret 1-11 is just about perfect but from 12-24 it is just a few millimeters too high for my preference. When I lower tremolo height I get fret buzz on the first fret. Will shimming...

    Hope this is in the right section. I've got a strange problem with my RG560. I recently got it set up with 9s in standard E tuning, but wanted to try 10s. I didn't like the thicker feel of them on this guitar, or the tighter feeling of the trem, so I switched back to 9s. (I did adjust the...

    I've been following the directions on the JEMsite tech section to get rid of my buzz on my 560 with a Lo Pro Edge. I can't get rid of the buzz on the wound strings from frets 1-7 or so. But even with relaxing the truss rod it doesn't go away. Now the buzz doesn't come through the amp at all...

    I am having an issue I cannot figure out. I have good relief (.04mm) good nut height (even slightly high). my action is 1.8 mm on high e (very clean), and 2.5 on my low e (which is very high in comparison to my high e). I have 9s on (strings). My problem is that the low side is getting a lot...

    Hi, I've got a 1990 540SCT6 and it's got a fret buzz problem. I had it set up by a local shop (Steve's Music in Toronto) and I'm not really happy with the results. This guitar pretty much hung on my wall for a bunch of years that I just didn't play and I decided a few months ago to get it set...

    If I am to get a new neck for my RG. What sort of set up's am I going to expect. It says in many guides, remember which screws which go in which holes because of the threads etc....does this mean I'm going to have to drill new holes because the threads will be different. I'm not too sure at...

    Looking for information on Recommended - or examples of - String Height Action (over fretboard) of both Guitars and Basses at Nut, 24th Fret, 36th Fret and Saddle. Found that the Fretless Cirrus has ca 5.2mm Action at 24th Fret. Fender Precision has ca 2-3mm at 20th Fret. The Cirrus Still has...

    I got my Jem 7v today, but the action is a bit to high. Im having trouble trying to figure out how to lower it. It looks as if theres a allen key hole inside the allen key hole. Do you have to unlock this some how? None of the allen keys provided fit the small hole inside the hole.

    i'm still working on my new RG1570...any advices on getting the lowest action ever?
  16. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    is it possible that if the nut was way too high, it could affect string tension for example pulling the trem away from the body and so having to over compensate with the claw and stuff? i just wondered coz im wwierd like that.

    Currently, playing my D string open buzzes itself almost dead (it is fine once it is fretted). I had this guitar set up about 2 years ago at EB to John Petrucci's specs with the frets dressed as needed for this low action. This is a first run JPMM, so I can not have the new compensated nut put...

    Alright, I'm in the process of sorting out a 1987 540R that has a bad habit of going sitar when playing the skinny "E" string open. I looked at the "V" shaped string guides where the nut hits the fingerboard and I swear the width looks like it is for a left-handed setup. By this I mean the width...

    First post, guys! My name is Brian, I'm in Madison Wisconsin. Anyways, I have an ebony fretboard JEM7VWH that I've been playing *lots* over the past three years. Fretwear is now at that dreaded point: refret. I wouldn't trust this guitar to anyone but the most skilled of luthiers (guild...

    As promised, here's my review of the RG 20th. Lazy people look away now, this could be lengthy, though I will attempt to keep it brief! This particular beast is the Road Flare Red model, delivered to me on the exact date I got my first one. How's that for timing?! Having owned the original...
