HNGD! i would love to have one of those.

i ordered off of GC"s used site and had major problems. neither guitar center claims any responsibility, both saying its the other . i got screwed out of $30. not a huge deal but it sure as hell pissed me off.

Nice. I had 2 Lukes and they were both awesome. Just a bit too small for me!

I would call your bank/credit card company and make sure you get those 30$ back. Sure it's not a lot of money, but this happens so much it's ridiculous. Get your gear, or cash back.

The new Luke III is amazing, it's slightly bigger and it has such a warm sound due to the one piece rosewood neck. And he's not using EMG's anymore, he's using a custom Dimarzio set that sounds brilliant.

i will go off topic for a moment. you pay shipping for every GC item sent to you. i esentially paid for shipping on both guitars, even though the other one was wrong. you can't call your credit card company and take off money that you knew how it worked and were aware of prior to transaction. if you want to ask anything further, feel free to PM me.

back to OP's thread. i apologize for the minor thread jacking.

That's insane, I would threaten them with a lawsuit if it were me. But it really isn't much money. No big deal

And I'm recording a video right now to demo the sounds I get from this beast. I had to EQ my clean channel a bit to occupy the Piezo on this, sounds amazing now.

Well basically, this was short lived. My A string saddle had some major issues leading to buzzing, intonation issues past the 12th fret, and the Piezo on that specific saddle shorting out. And by the advice of my tech, and Musicman I returned to the store and showed it to their tech, he fixed the intonation best he could although not perfect, but the buzz was still there, and the Piezo shorted out even after a battery swap.

Cheers to the next JP12 coming sometime in the middle of next week fellas! Russ is seriously one of the nicest guys there, he asked the manager if I could keep the JP12 until the next one came in. I declined and just told him to keep it in the store and send it back. I can live without it for a couple of days :lol: got two exams to worry about in Calculus 2 and Intro to Microprocessors anyways this upcoming week. I won't get much guitar playing done anyways.

So yeah, I'll update this when the new one comes in. Quickly becoming a longwinded NGD if you ask me haha.
