    That’s bad. I would suggest that unless the price is very low (low enough to allow a respray and rebuild) you should avoid this guitar. Even then you possibly won’t know how bad the damage is until...

    Jonís idea was true of my JP6. The battery connectors were bent flat from age and the connection was subsequently dodgy. Once I bent them back everything worked perfectly.

    You need to *loosen* the trem springs. 9s have less combined tension so the bridge will be pulling backwards unless you release the tension from the screws. A couple of turns would do it. Check...

    I have a full set of 2010 saddles from a JP6 that I don't need. PM me if interested.

    Also FWIW I put 2015 saddles in my 2010 JP6 and apart from being a slightly different design, they work...

    With the JP6 (and Majesty with tone knob up), bear in mind that the pickups are wired differently to traditional switches. On the JP6, you have three switch positions: Full humbucker, inner two coils...

    Thanks Maddi, I will for sure. I thought how could anyone treat their guitar like this? Not even a JP, just *any* guitar.

    Thanks everyone.

    @dibart77 no, I restored it to its original spec. There’s no way I was getting rid of that piezo! To be honest though, the electronics in the JP6 are vastly simpler than the...

    NOGD (New Old Guitar Day!)

    I recently rescued a 2010 JP6 from someone who clearly didnít know what they had. It was in very poor shape: It came with just two strings, a broken nut, and the worst soldering job Iíve ever seen....

    I would agree, except that there are many high-end brands producing expensive guitars that still have poor bridge design. It's almost like they've forgotten that the bridge is a part of the guitar...

    I've always wondered why so many manufacturers have ignored this problem when it's so obviously an issue. Bridge function and aesthetics still seems to take a back seat in the design process, with a...

    Majesty battery drain problem

    Hi all,
    My majesty has developed a new problem, the batteries are draining constantly as if the guitar is being left plugged in. This is new, and I canít understand what the issue is.
    The guitar is...
  13. Question: Yes, but like the OP, on distorted tones I hear...

    Yes, but like the OP, on distorted tones I hear no real difference, and on clean tones it just sounds dirty. If it were a true volume boost with no change to tone it would be ace, but the way it...
  14. Question: I know this is an older thread now but I’ve been...

    I know this is an older thread now but I’ve been thinking about this recently. In over five years of owning a Majesty, I have never found a reason to use the boost. What am I missing? Is there a...
  15. Excellent. Thanks, Pete, for the confirmation.

  16. JP6 pickup spacing - F, standard or both?

    Hi all,
    Just acquired a 2010 JP6 which might require new pups. I know this question has been asked before, but I canít quite find a definite answer.
    Are the pickups F spaced, standard, or both?...

    Thanks for the reply. Looks like a busy weekend ahead.

    I feel like this is pretty big shortfall in QA to be honest. Given that the frets are what you touch/feel, these should be a priority when...

    Sterling JP60 frets

    Hi all
    I just took delivery of a new JP60 MDR-2 to compliment my 2015 AD Majesty.

    First impressions are that this is an excellent guitar for the money. Aside from the Mystic Dream finish which...

    There is a small screw on the top of the tuning key. It controls the friction of the tuner. If you tighten it (gently), it will help prevent any string slippage but makes the tuning key harder to...

    Outstanding work, Evan. Thanks so much for your generosity, it would have taken me years to do just a fraction of this.
    Cheers, Jamie

    Hi there, congrats on the guitar!

    I can't hear the pop in the video? I have to say I've never noticed it on my Majesty. It must be very slight perhaps? Does it happen if you switch quickly, slowly...

    I'm yet to own a guitar that didn't have at least one glitch (my Ibanez UV777 is probably closest to perfection), but most problems are minor and can be fixed easily without sending guitars back. And...

    Can I check, did they send you new vol/tone knobs and pickup switches as well, or just bridge and tuning keys? Can’t quite tell from the photos. Many thanks, Jamie
  24. Question: Thanks, that's a big help. I'll be sure to...

    Thanks, that's a big help. I'll be sure to contact them. Was it easy to remove and replace the bridge? I've previously been advised it is extremely difficult and high risk for the instrument.
