Can anybody help me?
I just grabbed a Charvel/Jackson that has a JT-6 Jackson Floyd Rose knockoff trem. unit on it.
I'm familliar with F.R. and how it works, but this one is a different config. than the rest.
It's WIERD.
It also looks uncommon and hard to get parts for.
I'd like to know as much as I can about it before I start taking it apart for repairs or upgrades.(even for lube)
It has pieces on it that I have never run into before and haven't figured out EXACTLY what they do.

If there are any JT-6 guru's out there or if you know about a good website for JT-6, please enlighten me.

Well seeing how they made a lot of them there are plenty of parts out there in the used market (EBAY) for sale...There are people who make upgraded beefier trem blocks for them....(and there are people who make more traditional looking floyd rose style trems that will fit right on as a replacement if you don't like it)...I have a JT-6 in my parts bin...I might be using it on a project I'm working on...They work fine. They are just a little bit "overbuilt" and kind of an ugly duckling because this was an early design as far as floyd roses go.

Trem big blocks are all that.
I put one on my PS-4 Performer and it makes a big difference.
What I'm looking for though is maybe an exploded view or a parts list...a website friendly for JT-6 parts, especially in the micro-tuner end of the thing.
Looks like those knurled bushings at very top of the last picture push against a wedge-like block that slides down angle of bridgeplate to change pitch on each string.
One of mine isn't right, probably damaged.
I could probably fabricate one but I'd still like a diagram of how to put back together.
Did you say that original Floyd Rose drops right in to replace this unit?
I haven't measured, but they look very close.
I made a BAD Ebay deal recently and an original Floyd is about the only thing that looks like it's any good to me on this bad purchase.

I'd really like to overhaul this JT-6 just because it IS odd to most people and the only one I've ever seen in person.

Thanks Six String for the info and even more for posting pictures...they help me more than you think.
