1 gmascis 4 months ago hey guys.I have had some bad luck with duo jets (this is my 3rd one). I recently sent mine in to Joe Carducci to have him look it over because of buzz/playability problems. Turns out it had developed a back bow. He fixed it.Okay.When I bend strings, the guitar goes out of tune each time. Why would this be? Also, shouldn't a string bend on a shorter scale like a duo jet be easier than on a longer scale? My fender Jazzmaster is much easier to bend on, even though both guitars have .10s on them. Why would this be? Why does the Gretsch feel so much stiffer and resistant when bending?Intonation is off, especially on the G string above the 15th fret. It goes sharp both by ear and on the tuner. Joe pinned the bridge last year when sending me this guitar. So I am locked into this bridge position.I'm so frustrated. This is my third duo jet. All have had issues.I'm curious to hear any suggestions. I love the way this guitar sounds through my distortion pedals. It's like nothing else. But, what a nightmare of a guitar in every regard. And I don't think it's anything to do with me. I have sent these to Gretsch and they confirmed issues and tried/claimed to fix them. I also have a Jazzmaster that I have never had a single problem with in years. Bends are easy, intonation perfect, etc. Out of frustration I want to sell it, but I know I will never get a distorted tone like this from any other guitar. I just wish the thing would play right. It's so darn stiff feeling, iffy intonation, and goes out of tune with any aggressive play.
