i played one of the old jetkings a while back, they look amazing, but it rattled when you pick it up, had no kind of guts to it, felt flimsy and the neck was complete crap. i really hope the new ones are better than that.


I Played both the Omar and the JTK3 and I have to say, the news ain't good.
I found the necks were too wide at the nut and the profile was too flat.
The pickups sounded cheap in a not cool kind of way. Shrill and tinny as fuck.

And that tailpiece is just fucking horrible. In the pictures, it almost looks okay but IRL it looks hella cheap.

Turn the two centre screws anti clockwise.
They're very small and tightly screwed. And the metal part looks like a cover, i asked how could i took that cover off. =)
Well, maybe it's not a cover. I shoult push screws harder then. =)

yea, man you gotta unscrew them. they should be screwed directly into the wood, that's how P-90s usually mount. do you have a pickup to replace it with yet or are you just dismantling your new guitar? dimarzio makes some p-90 sized humbuckers.

I remember I saw some picture of hendrix playing one of these somewhere...

Maybe i should take it to a luthier. =) Better than damaging the wood.

I don't have a pickup to replace it yet. But i'm gonna get one soon. I should go and check guitarstores. I couldn't find any used one on web (I'm living in Turkey), maybe luthier has one.
I researched Dimarzio, i'm gonna probably buy (if i can find) "P-90 Super Distortion" or "Tone Zone P-90". I hope i can find. =)

Thanks for help, everyone!
