Hello. We use Korean version JTV69 satisfactorily. I have planned a guitar upgrade and recently purchased a US version JTV69US model. The sales site says that the pickups of JTV69 model of Korea and US JTV69US model are different from each other. In fact, I have confirmed that the same model from the same manufacturer applies. Attach a comparative photograph. Another thing, I know that the US version of the neck applies to the roll edge fingerboard, but not to the model I purchased. The model was made in 2011. Is not it fake, is not it? Of course, everything works fine, and wood is great.
