Yah! I'm having that issue with the frets when bending. Magaspang. It has a little bit of
resistance. Also, no matter how I tried to lower the action still it is a bit high (maybe d lang
talaga ako marunong mag adjust ) :nosebleed:
Another one is the trem, it is a bit angled down on the side of the bar, it should be straight ain't it.
I love my JP60, just had alot of issues on it, yet still it is a nice piece of axe.

Hope you guys could help me on these issues. Thanks ahead! :-)

I tried silo3 for 15k di na maganda finish ng mga fretwires, maspulido pa gawa ng china bullets strat. Sayang gusto ko pa naman. Pero pwede pa maayos sa luthier kaso additional cost, yun lang ang flaw ang npansin ko.  :)

for your fret issues, best to have em seated and glued first, i experience frets popping out. next i would have it sanded with finer grit sand paper. the fret wire used is good quality, its hard so it doesnt ding easily which also means its not easy to just burnish with 0000 steelwool

the post should be at best the same height, since the saddles are adjustable in height, it wouldnt make any sense it being tilted.

also there's alot of paint within the neck pocket, i found this common in most indonesian made guitars now, i use my dremel to clean that out.

I had no problem with frets popping out (yet), it's just the feel when you bend the strings. Probably gotten used to it already but still I want it to be smooth. Madumi na nga akong tumugtog tapos ganito pa...  :-D Try to have it fixed when I come back home.

The thing that bothers me the most is the Trem Bridge, it's tilted. I'll post a pic here sometime so that you guys could see it.  I've tried to adjust it yet still it's angled down.

The action is just okay with coz I just play blues and not capable of shredding, yet I still want it a bit lower.

For the fret feel check my suggestion, you need to sand it

Access the back cavity and loosen the spring tension using a screw driver

Nag try ko na kasing binaklas yung springs sa likod. Probably I could have inter-change the springs?
Does it has something to do with it?

Thanks for the help

all your springs have the same tension as it came as a set.

what is your string gauge? if you're using 9-42's you need to loosen it more or just use 2 springs

nice!  :mrgreen:

I destrung my JP60 got to get some daddario xl 10 - 46. I've already loosen up the screw at the back. If still it;s angled then I will remove one spring. Thanks for this.  BTW, did you adjust your pick up height, I wanted to lower it for it captures everything my left hand do, and I don't like it, It's noisy!  :eek:

Thanks Bro!

I restrung my JP60, the trem is straight now. Just few buzzes on the higher frets but it's fixable.
The worst part is I broke the 1st string, no spare!!!  :eek:

Thanks Bro, bryanarzaga for the help!
