JP16 made me switch from 9's to 10's after 30 years
After a week of playing the JP every day, I grabbed my LIII & the 9’s felt like rubber bands :). So, I switched that to 10’s, as well as my AL. I think the floating bridge definitely makes a difference, because it gives when you bend. I haven’t changed my Axis guitars, they still feel ok with 9’s, maybe because they play like a hardtail, the bridge only lifts if I bend more than a full step.
This JP16 has exceeded my expectations, so easy & comfortable to play.
