    Looks like the older saddles but it looks fine. It's always possible too that it's currently in a non standard tuning or whoever owns it now did a poor job intonating it.

    With any naturally occurring material like wood you will have some variation. That said, I am surprised to see they used that for a quilt top. The majority of JP15s I've seen are considerably more...

    Whether or not it is worth it is totally subjective. I have say that I've played and owned a number of high end guitars from most big name manufacturers and that my JP15 and JP6 feel decidedly...

    I agree with this. For me it's more feel than sound.

    Oh boy does that guitar look sweet. Its like they took the best parts of a Cutlass, Suhr Modern and Ibanez S then gave it the ol' EBMM magic. Definitely want one and that dude can flat out wail.

    I am pretty sure it's Dimarzio only. Along with the quick connect they are also flat bottomed, meaning they just have wings for the mounting screws rather than legs which means they're shorter than...

    I eventually came around on the Illuminators but initially thought they were much too bright and lacked bass. Turns out I was just lazy EQ'ing my amp. That said, it can be a chore to put just any...

    Classy bunch this month. LOVE the shield inlay on the body of the majesty and the stripe on the back of the Valentine neck is choice.

    I wonder sometimes how much of the tone I "hear" is actually influenced by what I feel. I used to swear by 10s or even 11s on some guitars thinking it was giving a much more powerful sound but in a...

    The strings are not going to bow. When checking relief, the strings serve as a straight edge to compare relief of the neck against. Ernie Ball has a video showing how at Truss Rod Adjustment -...

    If you're just changing the lowest string to a heavier gauge, the tweaks will be relatively minor, may or may not require a neck adjustment. General order of operations for setting up the guitar is...

    It will be challenging, covered or uncovered. The dimarzio pickups used in the Majesty and JP 15s at least use the quick connect system so they don't have "legs" which will make most traditional...

    I agree for the most part though the new JP15 finish is alluring. I'd love to see a JP20. The new Luke pickups interest me, specifically the HSS as i wasn't crazy about the singles from dimarzio. ...

    SS frets are noticeably different, they're much smoother feeling. They're harder too. I can't say what a price would be but generally speaking they are more expensive because they are much harder...

    To go along with what Pete pointed out, the quick connect pickups have a smaller base and have no legs so normal pickups will not fit in a guitar routed for them. I ran into this issue with a JP15...

    It's a floating bridge so you'll probably want a tremelno if you're going to change tunings a lot. You could maybe get away with just drop D but if you're doing multiple strings it's going to cause...

    My guess is they did do some light sanding while maintaining the neck as my EBMM guitars have always had a clean line but the JP line have VERY thin necks. Ibanez thin, just a little rounder on the...

    That JP is jawdropping. They're all pretty sweet, I love the orange on the stingray.

    Yeah it's such a personal decision for that. I purchased a 2019 Majesty that I ended up exchanging for a JP15. The painted neck didn't jive with me though I preferred the slightly wider neck to the...

    I can't say 100% but think it looks fine in those pics. Does it feel off? I've had a neck shift in the pocket before and couldn't really see it but pulled the string off the fretboard really...

    I just got a JP15 from sweetwater 2 months ago. I had one previously and didn't jive with it, then one day decided I had to have one again. This one's not going anywhere. That natural one is...

    Yeah, the Luke is thicker than a JP neck but I would still say it's pretty skinny.
