    if you crank on the plate it will crack...maybe not at first...also most times it is a plating crack not material crack. If we did something wrong we should get a chance to fix it.

    Johnny all those problems sort of surprise me....why didnt you give us a chance to fix it?
    Two requests, please

    Thanks for offering Big Poppa =) Sincerely appreciate it. However, were I to send the afore mentioned instruments to the US and have them sent back would cost me a fortune in shipping fees, not to mention a mountain of paperwork as I am located in Europe. I certainly wish there was an easier way.

    As fas as the NOMAC is concerned, I had a conversation with Pete, and he in turn with Drew. Drew's adamant position is that it's not glue but part of the NOMAC time-worn finish. It's not though, and I am willing to bet a second NOMAC on that =)

    PS. I would definitely be satisfied with a 5A quilted maple top JP15 in Trans Black and an insane flame-figured neck, which I would pay for of course =D
