may1620 Posted January 27, 2012 Report Share Posted January 27, 2012 Hi, Long time reader and first time posting. My new EJ-160E JL last arrived last night from Sam Ash, and unfortunately there was a heavy metal bar rattling around loose inside the guitar. I managed to get the bar out and it is heavy metal, magnetic, sharp edges, and about 3 inches long. The outside of the guitar looks OK, but I have played it very little - assuming I was going to return it in otherwise new condition. There is definitely some pickup to amp activity, though weaker than I would have expected, compared to other electric/acoustics. Spent a half hour on the phone with Sam Ash detailing all this, only to learn that they insist on charging me for all shipping, in order to get a (partial) refund on the return. My second order with them, and likely my last. So my question is, did this big metal bar come from the guitar itself, and if so what is it and where does it go? And could this heavy bar rattling around inside done damage to the pick-up, wiring, or anything else? Thank you in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
