    LOL what??

    He uses .010 gauge on a 25.5" scale, that's hardly "light".

    Billy Gibbons uses .007 gauge, now that's a light player.

    Question: Is there any EBMM model with jumbo frets?

    Apart from the discontinued JPX, every guitar seems to have either medium jumbo or small frets.

    I there any other model currently in production with big jumbo ones?

    SS frets have zero effect in tone.

    Note that Les Pauls are dark sounding guitars. Pretty much everything else will sound brighter in comparison.

    The original JP6 never received new pickups beyond the CrunchLab + LiquiFire. And this JPXX model effectively is the original JP6 in a different finish.

    Personally, these pickups are my favorite....

    Yes, this is 100% true.

    My experience with EBMM necks is that they are very susceptible to climate variations, much more than other brands. The truss rod position surely alleviates the setup work,...

    IMO the tail piece is the best feature of the Morse model, actually. That Bigsby looks nice though.

    They look like ordinary JP15 and Majesty, but with a different finish and the commemorative XX logo on the 1st fret. So, nothing really new.

    When I read the title, I was expecting an 8-string.

    I never played an Y2D, but the mod is probably possible with a Fender superswitch (any combination is possible). Maybe the Y2D already uses one.

    I don't think it's a metal one which became tarnished, it's uniformly black.



    The mag/piezo switch is metal. It definitely was replaced, indeed.
  13. Question: JPXI with a black toggle switch: can it be original?

    This dude has a JPXI for sale, but the magnetic 3-way switch is black. It looks like it was replaced, but he says it's 100% original. He also says he's the sole owner, and it's one of the first JPXI...

    I feel your pain. I play live in a 3-piece rock band, a situation where the guitar cannot fail. I had a Majesty that was amazing to play live (very lightweight), but the fact it ran on batteries made...

    I believe this is the most educational part of the whole video. Low action will buzz, simply because of physics: there is no room for the string vibrate, so it touches the frets. I set my guitars...

    One concern that many people probably don't think about is John Myung, with all that low end coming from the guitar.

    Last year I went to a DT concert, and the bass was barely audible when JP used...

    Probably that's why it's taking so long. He's probably experimenting with all those options, and the dude is very methodic.

    Giving how different the Majesty came out, we can expect anything.

    When temperature goes up/down, strings and springs expand/shrink.

    If you notice that all strings go out of tune when temperature changes, one trick is: instead of tuning the strings individually,...

    Not only from John Petrucci, but also from many other guitarists.

    Anyway back and forth, after trying countless picks, today I'm using the ol' good Jazz III black ones. A classic.

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