Neck and frets are fine. And I've heard that JM was pretty much designed for 12's or higher. I really prefer thicker strings everything else being equal.

Thanks dude. I will check him out.


For sure. Don't even worry about this, I am positive Benny can sort it out for you. He's one of those underground masters of the guitar tech world.

I talked to him on the phone today and he seemed like a solid guy. Didn't even tell me that I should know what to do because I play guitar! Just have to find the time to get out there. Thanks very much for the tip!

12s are already really heavy so they are not the issue.

Possibly your action needs raising or truss rod sorted. Plinking and stuff is not a sign of bad intonation, fwiw. Best bet is a nice setup.

yup, totally correct. flatwound 12s or 13s with a wound G were the norm at that time. all vintage fender guitars were designed with those strings in mind.

12's on a 25.5 scale in insane. I use .9's on a 25 inch scale currently. Also, there are no such things as global climate change, evolution, or germs.
