    For what you said, the first JP6 model seems to be the best choice. The unfinished neck is awesome, and the electronics are not complicated, since the piezo module is isolated from the passive...

    Shorter than a Les Paul toggle, yes. It's actually a DiMarzio EP1111 part.



    So you'll probably hit the switch a lot. It may not seem to be a big deal during the "honeymoon phase", but soon...

    It's important to mention that Hendrix tuned his guitar to Eb (half step down) while using 10-38 gauge.

    Guthrie Govan switched to some custom-designed locking saddles a while ago.

    Nice design on these Wilkinsons.

    I use Billy Gibbons' .007 gauge for years. Really fun to bend, and you play for hours without getting tired. The tone is a nice bonus.

    If you feel you can't do it... why not?

    Just remember to come back here and post the results, these mods are amazing!

    Question: JP6 3-way toggle too stiff?

    Original JP6 model. Piezo toggle switch is smooth, but the magnetics 3-way toggle is very stiff... is there anything that can be done to make it slide more smoothly?

    Honestly, I think the modification is not worth the cost. I'd trade the JP6 for a Luke, which is an HSS model stock.

    Hey Cooper, how much do you feel the transition between SS and nickel frets on the JPs?

    Do the SS frets make much of a difference?

    Question: JP13/JP15 vs. Majesty: 3x AA vs. 9V

    The preamp in the JP13/JP15 and the Majesty appear to be the same. Features are the same, controls are all the same.

    However, the Majesty uses three AA bateries, while the JP13/JP15 use a single...

    100% agree.

    Jazz improvisation should not only be upon notes, but everything else.

    The neck looks aligned, but that gap is strange.

    I'd exchange for another one.

    Stainless steel frets debuted with the JPXI in January 2011, and later became standard on all JP models ordered since January 2012. Your 2017 surely has SS frets.

    Another change with the new preamp is the layout of the back controls. The stereo/mono switch isn't in the piezo vol anymore, it's now in a hole within the back cover.

    The back of the Majesty neck is not really glossy. It's painted, but it has some satin feel. It doesn't feel like oiled wood (like the first JP6), but it definitely doesn't feel much glossy.

    Very interesting detail we can spot at 6:25... John played the whole "Glasgow Kiss" theme section with the boost engaged, then he literally PUNCHES the volume knob to disengage it! :eek:

    I disagree... in my experience, it varies from guitar to guitar. Some guitars are rock solid, with perfect alignment in every season of the year. Others need adjusment. And others, less fortunate,...
