How to Destroy a JP Guitar

Why even buy a (non-piezo) JP in the first place if you're going to trash it?  You buy a JP *because* of all the cool shit it has already.  What a tragedy.


In case it's deleted quickly here is what was done:

- 2008 EBMM JP-6 (non-piezo) Pearl Red Burst.
- Player condition / modified.
- This is a stunningly nice playing guitar that had some 'interesting' mods done by the original owner:
- Removal of tone control and plugging of hole.
- Deepening of lower cutaway (refinished with a very good colour match).
- Scalloping of upper four frets (Ibanez jem style).
- Installation of Seymour Duncan JB/59 set with push/pull vol pot for coiltap.
- The only 'mod' that I have added is an easily removable block so the trem will tolerate alternate tunings on the fly (dive only, in other words).
- None of the mods have adversely affected the playability of this guitar...it's a shred monster just as it is intended to be!


The last point really gets me.  ALL of the mods have adversely affected the playability.

The trem-block is actually pretty nice for people who like to change tunings a lot, but those could install it themselves so whatever.
Also what is the point of scalloping frets? Feels like it would just make it easier to accidentaly press the string too much and have the note ring out of tune.

Anyways I'm not a big fan of JP guitars, I find them kinda ugly. No denying they must play very well since so many people use them though.
