    Not sad... you're not alone! My JPXI is the only one I still have with the 12th fret inlay. I've considered selling it many times to purchase new BFRs (most recently the nebula majesty) but I just...

    After much debating on selling gear and crunching the numbers it seems this is out of my reach. I can only hope to pick one up second hand in a few years. So please take precious care of these for...

    I believe the original JPXI models used the older style piezo saddles and preamp. I purchased one new in 2012 (still have it) and had an issue with one of the piezo saddles after hundreds and...

    Man oh man oh man! This is the guitar I've been dreaming of for 5 years now. Was NOT expecting the price to be even higher than the Tiger Eye though. Damn it. I guess I have some tough decisions to...

    I'm just glad to see the "anything and everything in satin finish" fad may be finally starting to fade across the industry from what I've seen so far from NAMM this year. Kudos on the new finishes...

    Yes, definitely. You can also use automotive paint polishes as well to take of swirls and light scratches. The EB customer service folks have verified in previous threads. Here's one where Casey...

    Not necessarily true. I have a JP6 Koa (with the newest model preamp) that exhibits the same high pitch whine no matter what. TRS -> TS adapter had no effect. I even soldered in a replacement jack...

    I hope they do special inlay for the anniversary models. May I suggest a JP20 shield/emblem at the 12th fret with an otherwise clean board, like the NOMAC majesty. Pure class.

    Wow, that's gonna make someone super happy! Nice find! Racing stripe fb inlay as well.

    Unfortunately the STV model doesn't interest me at all. I'll keep waiting for that purple Valentine :)

    Thanks Daniel. Just to be clear, I wasn't knocking EB strings at all. Instead I was just trying to convey that this type of fluke can happen even if you are using quality strings and not some cheapo...

    The hum when not touching strings could be your environment and nothing wrong with the guitar or guitar grounding. I would just make sure that the cavity cover ground wire is pinched under the cavity...

    I sold my Valentine... to buy a BFR JP15 Eminence :) I did dig the Valentine a lot and will eventually get another one. Highly recommended for sure.

    I understand what you mean - it's not too tight rotation-wise, but vertically in/out. I have a JP with the opposite issue - too loose in/out and therefore doesn't feel as responsive when using it.

    I'd loosen the strings and check the bridge posts and knife edges. If they are torn up and gouged then that could be the issue. If that's not the case at least make sure there isn't any dirt or grime...

    Me too. I would have had to buy one of each then.

    I can't say enough about how much I dig the more recent BFRs with the clean ebony boards and binding.
