JTV-89 arrived broken
by Icewind on 2011-02-18 09:25:54

This post is provided for info/reference only.  GuitarCenter.com screwed up on my order and I'm actually receiving two JTV-89 (Blood Red) guitars today.

Well. I just got the first one, and it's a good thing there's another one coming today. Aside from a few miniscule blemishes in the finish and the fact that the volume knob is just a HAIR cockeyed, I thought it was ok. Then I turned it over to check out the back and an adjustment screw on the bridge pickup FELL OUT. As in, there's not even anything to thread it into.

I've bought a lot of cheap guitars, but never had a screw just fall out like that. And this is not a cheap guitar.

I already had to return one to GC anyway, but when I do return this one, I'll make sure they're aware so this guitar doesn't go back out to anyone else.

Awful story.

I'm waiting for a second generation JTV-59 after I returned the defective first-generation one and somehow I had my hopes up that the quality would be better than the first gen.

I guess they are really rushing these things out now.

Enough is enough, this JTV thing is one very sad story so far. What's going on Line 6?
