I found a Fully loaded JP7 on Gumtree UK and decided I needed a 2nd one
Me and the seller agreed to meet up on Saturday and I drove to him. Got there a bit late so only have about 5 min there before he had to leave for work so I gave the JP7 a quick play and the action was awful. talking 4 - 5mm. almost unplayable however the tremm worked and sounded cool.
I already have one so apart from the horrific setup, it seemed all good to me.
I'm very anal about getting my guitars setup EXACTLY how I like them so when I got it home I had a look at it right away...
The neck was warped. I didnt even think to get a picture of it but fuck me, it was bad! Completely write off. Nothing would ever fix this!
I was pretty gutted and pissed off.
I txt the guy saying it was warped and I wasnt too happy about it. He txt me back right away saying he was sorry and had no idea, and offered me a full refund if I wanted it.
Now if THAT isnt lucky, I dont know what is! I took the guitar back today and got my cash back. He was such a cool guy about it. Walked him through the neck problems as best as I knew and all I ended up loosing was some petrol money which I can definitely live with, considering.
So many people wouldnt even had replied to me, and I would have been stuck with a completely fucked guitar.
Such a disappointing day though.
Wonder what caused it to get warped?
