    Well I came across a deal the other day that I decided I wanted to try out and the guitar showed up last night right as I was leaving for work :mad:

    Onto the few crappy cell phone pictures. It's kind of a mind fuck because it either looks a very pretty, sparkly red or it looks almost black depending on the light

    It's a Sterling Music Man JP50 that had a Crunchlab already installed. Honestly, build quality seems pretty good. Neck feels great and locking turners seem to be decent quality. Trem seems pretty stable also, did some stupid dives bombs and pulled up on the bar everywhere for like 15 minutes and it stayed in tune perfectly.

    Only thing I might do is order real JP dome knobs and possibly put a Graph Tech nut on it


    I'm not British, but cheers! :lol:

    Haven't quite decided on a tuning yet. My other 6 is setup for drop C, might keep this one in Eb possibly

    Just noticed that this gutar has a trem, but doesn't have a locking nut! I'm interested to know how that'll stay in tune without being massively infuriating... XD

    Just a little update. I got a graphite nut cut for it, blocked the trem (even though it's great! I just change tunings too much) and got it set up after being shipped across the country. Plays like buttaaa and sounds even better now :yesway:


    And I lol'd at the previous posts haha

    F-me.....thanks a lot.

    Now I am totally gassing for one of these Sterling guitars....Ive always wanted a JP, but always a bit out of my price range. I had no idea they made a lower priced model for the body style.
