    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...

    FYI I had the exact same symptoms happen to me last week after doing a routine setup on my JP15-7. Everything was 100% fine but then I noticed bends of +1 or more on the high E would die out like you...

    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'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...

    If you are going to replace the block you might as well replace the posts. I've had a defective post with some gouges cause damage to the knife edges on one of mine in the past. Just normal use over...

    Thanks Pete! I couldn't come up with the funds in time to grab the one you had before it was gone. Fortunately there were still a few new ones out in the wild and I got lucky. When it comes time for...

    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.

    What strings? 9s? If the JP60 is the same as the EBMM JPs, then it comes with 10s and 3 trem springs. If you change to 9s or smaller you can remove one of the trem springs. A lot of us set up the...
