    First build, first JMA-1

    Welcome Allfx! The forum loves an offset, look forward to seeing your progress.
    if you get stuck, just holler and the advice and rescue crew will fire up.
    IGOR, I know it can be done, the question is, should we be the ones doing it?

    Hey everyone Steve here. Just trying to do final assembly on the JMA-1L.....Having trouble finding assembly instructions, mainly on how to bolt down the BRIDGE?

    The bridge is held in place by the tension of the term springs and the guitar strings themselves. The front to it pivots against the posts. There is a pic about half way down this page.

    Now that the guitar is set up it actually sits about 1.5mm off the guitar body. You wind the pivots out to ball park the action and then fine tune it with the saddles.
