Hello everyone,

I bought a JEMJRSP the other day, and I'm wanting to make sure it's real. Although I can't imagine anyone faking a $500 guitar, ya never know.

Anyone know where I can verify the serial on these? I did a Google search, and found one site. It returned unknown yr, and unknown factory. So, it's got me a bit worried.

Serial # is
JEMJRSP
1P-02 (is the 02 the yr? )
I 201002584
says Made in Indonesia
17274
17275
17276
17277
17278

‘Did you have any trouble getting yours to stay in tune after using the bar? There were guys that bought this on another forum and they complaine that after dives and pull ups it wouldn’t stay in tune. Mine wouldn’t either. So I took off the back plate and guess what I found.

There were three springs that were stretched to the max and the claw almost touching the top of the route. So I let the claw out over an inch, and put in the extra spring that came with it. With four springs not stretched to the max, it felt more like three springs, and the trem returns to pitch.

Also if you lower the string retaining bar on the headstock to where the Strings toucch the very back of The nur, you won’t have to use the fine tuners. It will stay in tune after you lock down the nut.

Thank you everyone! Have any of you installed a brass sustain block on this guitar? If so, what size did you go with? The stock block says 32 but I asked fu-tone and they say I need a 37?

As long as the 37 fits in the cavity. 5mm isn't a huge difference but it could be an issue because a Jem can pull pretty far back due to the lion claw cavity. If you keep your plastic cover off it shouldn't be a problem. I never have mine on. Pull your bar all the way back and look at the clearance of the current block. If it's still really recessed, 37 should be fine. Unless they are confusing your Jem Jr with a Japanese Jem...
