  1. Music: Other Instruments
    I've been wanting to get a bass for recording/playing bass and finally ordered one. I actually started on bass first and played that for 5+ years before getting my first guitar, but haven't owned a bass since my mid-teens. Thought about a Squier CV but I always wanted a Stingray when I was a...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Does anyone know who makes the pickups in Sterling guitars? I've been pretty impressed with the stock pickups in my JP70. I haven't had the urge to rip them out yet, so I'd like to know where Sterling is getting them.

    Weird… I don't remember seeing these announced, and one just showed up on a Reverb ad. Seems like something we'd go nuts over with the maple neck and fretboard. Sterling JP157 7-string - Sahara Burst | Sweetwater.com

    Looks like they are coming out with a newer and better 7 string called the Jp170D. It will have the CL/LF pickup combo, better bridge and a cooler looking top. Thoughts?

    Here is my video I made comparing the Indonieasn made JP70 vs the American made JP7. Both guitars play great but I will let you be the judge. Both guitars had BKP blackhawks in them when they were recorded.

    Hi, on my black JP70 I noticed when I push down the trem bar for a dive bomb, when releasing the bar I hear a 'clack' kind of sound coming from the trem, I think the sound comes from the knife edge on the bass side of the strings. This only happens upon releasing the bar after it's been pushed...

    I've only owned this around about 7 months and it's probably only had 3 hours play time. It's a great guitar, love the neck profile, but I just seem to give all my attention to my strat right now. I've got some house renovations to do so I really could do with the extra cash. Mint condition...

    So obviously I joined the new band, and ideally I'd need a slightly different type of guitar than what I currently have - hence I am putting my JP70 up for trade to see what's out there. She's in great shape, there is some very slight "shining" from using the guitar (typical for matte finish...

    I am considering buying a used one but I don't know about the trem. I know it's a floating trem but there isn't a locking nut. The one I played was in D standard and I tried to get it back into E standard but it just pulled the trem up higher as I did. Is there a screw in the body that needs...
