    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
  6. 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.

    Congratulations on your persistence! Great result. Can you share who you contacted at EBMM, because I am in exactly the same boat as you. My hardware was discoloured from day 1, and patches wore off...

    Sorry to see this. Devastating.

    I'm guessing it would be possible to seamlessly repair the wood damage however the arctic dream paint finish is not likely fixable without a full re-paint.

    But...

    Just remember, removing all the strings at once removes a huge amount of tension from the neck. About 60-70kg depending on tuning and string gauge. Thatís why changing two at a time is recommended.

    How low is action?

    Why not first just slightly raise the bridge on the B string side only? It might only take a 1/4 turn of the bridge post. Once you start adjusting saddle heights, you risk individual strings being...

    I suspect it is your palm technique given it’s happening on both majesties. To test the hot pickup theory, raise the bridge on one guitar (you can’t lower the pups). Also be sure to have the piezo...

    Neck-through is sleeker and much more comfortable to play and, I suspect, more expensive to make. The Majesty is a joy to play and feels modern; the JP15 by comparison is much chunkier because of the...

    Wow that’s a difficult one. It sounds like the truss rod is unwinding or slipping. Otherwise if you keep having turn the truss one way, you will eventually reach the end of the thread and the neck...

    Three wraps around the post is too many. When you restring, pull the string straight through *tight* and then lock the tuner. Then tune up. The string will be wrapped perhaps halfway around the post....

    You can get the right result either way, but remember that the primary purpose of adjusting the truss rod is not to change action, but to change neck relief. The action will change too, but that is a...

    In terms of order, you should lower the bridge first using a hex key, then adjust the relief it it’s still too high. Remember, truss rod adjustments can take 24 hours or so to settle so don’t rush.

    Hi there, good choice with the majesty. It’s a well built guitar. 10 gauge strings are standard which I think work better than 9s for acoustic/piezo work. They are also more stable when it comes to...
