You have a lucky Missus. I have looked at those, wondering whether it would be worth the effort to assemble and "upgrade". What is the neck width at the nut and at the body fret? Any idea what sort of pickups are included?
Alas, seeing as I sort of have one of each, I am not biting. My "JEM" is amazing, powerful, very flexible. The bridge design is silly. But patience work here. My "Strat" is waiting for more small electronic components (caps, resistors) before I strip down and re-wire with new, expensive "Malmsteen" low friction pots and a new 5-way switch, I might add two tremolo springs to tighten up the rear end for supposedly better sustain (? Maybe stiffer springs eat less string vibration energy. I would have thought lighter springs will "give"more in sympathy with the string vibrations, to "pump back" into the strings. ?) and a general re-think of wire layout and connections. Of course, that is step 1. Step 2 is new tuning machines, these are rather worn (and cheap), but finding items that will fit the present screw holes might be a problem. Step 3, bringing the old worn guitar almost to new spec at a fraction of the new price for a similar item, would be a neck sand and re-fret. Which I should apparently not see as a Friday evening job. Might have to farm that one out to a specialist. Apparently a "solid" trem block also works magic. That I could machine from any material on hand, Brass? Steel?
