    I installed a tremol-no in my jp-16 and it works properly, however the back plate now no longer fits flush. I can get it on, but there is a bow in the cover. I typically leave the plate off for easy access.

    I’ve seen a couple of pics of various JP’s with tremol-nos floating around and they have the back plate off. Just curious if this is common with the line of guitars or if there is an easy fix.

    You can make or buy backplates adapted to the tremol-no.

    Anybody local with a mill or a small machine shop can modify that for you no problem.

    Yeah I just have the backplate off for now. First guitar with the tremol-no, so it sounds like this is a common issue and not necessarily unique to the JP guitars.

    Thanks

    Good decision on going without a backplate, if there is a bump on it then there is pressure on the contents below. Better without one or just get the plate with the gap as the 2nd poster said.
