  • Jay Turser Guitars

    Anyone have a Jay Turser guitar? Wondering about the quality of them. They seem to be a good deal for the price, but im not looking for another project to put all sorts of work into to make right. Will they be a really good guitar with only a little setup? Looking at a 12 string to replace my old Dano 12 string. Thanks
    I have been playing for 33 years, I'm not any good. Common sense, its not so common anymore.

    My first guitar was a JT strat copy. I don't have much complaints. The electronics were ****************, but the neck was smooth and it wasn't too heavy. Just make sure to play one before you buy.

      I have been learning to play 4 months and heve taken my JT-200 electric to a lot of local teachers and pros and they all have given it a good rating. I too did a lot of research when I got it as I didn't know jack about guitars, let alone Jay tursers. The general consensus that I found was that they are quality at an affordable price.

          I have a JT acoustic/electric resonator. Looks great, sounds good, started falling apart in a couple of months.

            hmm, So i should buy the Schecter CSH-12 then? (its in the same family as the C-1's. I heard that was supposed to be a nice guitar. I would just have to wait some more to get it, and try and sell a couple of my other guitars here first.

            The JT's are a solid body---more of what i was looking for, The Schecter is a semi hollow body....what to do, what to do....

              I've looked at trying a Jay Turser a number of times, but everytime I see one I like and check the reviews, I end up changing my mind after reading what was written.
              I like their rosewood tele, but I'll probably never get one because of their reviews.

                I just got one last Thursday. It is a complete POS, but. I spent all day yesterday putting in new pots, wiring, tuners, re-installed every screw so they were straight. But I knew this going into it. It has a nice neck and body. It has P-90 pickups. I have never had those yet I am still evaluating them. I got it dirt cheap though.

                  Kind of OT, but does anyone know if a tele neck would fit in a JT tele copy? I was thinking about getting a JT thinline and putting a MM neck on it.

                      Those are cool looking.

                      Sorry to hear you had problems.

                      Did you buy it new?

                      Some reviews say it's really good.

                        My advice, for what it's worth, is to avoid the Turser 'Hawk' 12 string. I bought one about a year ago....and liked it for about a week. I felt it's 'sound' was either harshly 'trebly' or 'muddy' in the other direction, with nothing good in between. Don't be fooled by the inevitabvle comparisons to a 'Byrds-like', 60's 'jangly', Rickenbacker sound 'at a fraction of the cost' of the original..it ain't there.

                        It's absurdly neck-heavy, with a curiously undersized body that borders on just weird.

                        My guitar quickly developed a finish crack near the neck pocket. I assume that it didn't go any deeper than the clearcoat, but I can't be certain.

                        Can you say 'fret buzz?' plenty of that too.

                        If you buy one of these guitars, be prepared to spend some time and money making it 'right'.

                        Buy the Schecter. I've never owned one, but it CAN'T be inferior to the Turser 'Hawk'.

                        I've owned other Turser guitars that were VERY good, but my 'Hawk' was not one of them.

                          Where are the reviews, BluesHawk? Can't find em on HC.

                          I bought a JTLTRW rosewood Tele a few weeks back, and it's ok.
                          It sorta cured my RW Tele GAS which is FAR more expensive.

                          BTW, if you are thinking of a JT, hit ebay. I paid $60 less than musicland central has them for, on a buy it now.

                            I only own one, and it has been great.
                            Called a JT45, it's sort of an SG Jr with set neck and single dogear P90. I've been nothing but impressed for it's balance, finish, smooth fret detail, stable tuners, and a sweet pickup. My first P90, which started a scramble to try out more, and still remains one of my favorites for driving a tube screamer pedal.

                              I have a JT-55 (asymmetric horned, 2 HB SG copy)

                              The pickups sucked so I upgraded to GFS Liverpools.

                              Pickups & electronics aside, a very nice player; good fretwork, stays in tune, comfy neck & decent balance for an SG
