I do play my
jem10th every weekend with 5alive.dk during touring in DK. Actually it
has been played so much, I did have to change the neck pickup because
the plastic in the pick up edge below strings were totally worn out, and
cobber from the actual pickup was hanging out broken and it was lowering
output/sound (replacement of Evo neck pick up approx 800 Dkr or 130$).
plating (Metal silver paint) on pickups are worn off. Maybe I repaint it some day.
2006 I have had to replace/shifted the frets due to heavy damage
from playing a lot. Åke Nathorst Westfelt at guitar shop in Aabenrå
(street in Copenhagen, phone +45 3312 1251) did the job. Åke told me
before getting started that the result would be better then new. And
what a result. Its flying, or more like my fingers are moving faster
than ever. Type of frets? ask Åke, properly
Thanks to Åke, great job (price for the job 3.700,- dkr.
