JTAL GUITARS Restoration Notes: From JT: “Almost a perfect finish from a wear/tear perspective – the body, in the Charvel Magenta finish still shines. There are a few very light scuffs and scratches due to general play/use, but for a 30 year old guitar, it’s stunning. The frets showed light to medium wear and there were a few frets with high spots passed the 12th fret. Entire fretboard was re-leveled, re-crowned and polished. Truss rod nut and threads were reluctant to tighten – nut removed, threads cleaned and nut/threads lubricated properly. Truss rod is able to be tightened and loosened properly now without any unecessary resistance or grit reluctance.
“Original wiring remains in tact in perfect working order. Midboost works perfectly – new 9V battery added to ensure adequate power. Battery enclosure re-secured – enclosure had come loose inside the control cavity and was banging around when the guitar was moved.
“New Original Floyd Rose FRT2001984 (installed right out of the box) and intonated to /- 1 cent to pitch at 12th fret. Gold fine tuners can be replaced with black fine tuners if desired. New OFR R3 nut installed (gold). “
