Quoted from jimwe5t:
The huge difference is, Stern will stand behind it and not charge $550 for a in warranty period replacement with a playfield with the same issue, if it is needed. I see you make off comments about Stern quite often. Are you a JJP fanboy too? Will think twice about purchasing your mods in the future.
Off comments about stern quite often? I’ve never said anything disparaging about stern or any manufacturer, I like them all. Look at my history and collection, I’ve owned a lot of stern games and have spent a lot of money buying their games...and my Jp will be here any day. The only thing I don’t like about stern games is the spike system and related to that the availability of boards down the road and ability to repair, which I think is fair and hardly an off comment. Do I think JJP builds a more full featured and better game compared to Stern...absolutely. But that doesn’t mean I think stern games are bad, hardly, they are ALL a lot of fun. I did not mean to come across as negative toward stern.
The point of posting reference to the JP pooling was just to show there is something broader going on, it’s not just JJP. Mirco does not make play fields for stern so to see this pooling on Beatles and now JP means there are some big issues with clear coating that isn’t just limited to a single manufacturer. I have stated that JJPs seeming lack of response is disappointing. $550 for an unpopulated playfield is tough to swallow, I mean how many people really can do a swap? I am not sure what Stern would do for something like this. I know they were replacing ghosted play fields on GB, but has anyone made a claim for an issue like this?
