Blocking the trem on a JS100

So, obviously the JS100 models have the cheaper trems than the 1000 models. Having dealt with both RG7620's and RG7420's I got a bit of how much of a difference there can be with the two.

But if the trem on a JS100 model were blocked would it be a noticable difference? I'm not a whammy guy and as fantastic as the JS1200 models are the price is a bit tough for me to swallow.

Re: Blocking the trem on a JS100

My understanding is that if that trem is blocked, it mitigates most of the problems it has ... but then I haven't tried it.

Re: Blocking the trem on a JS100


I used to have a JS100 that I upgraded to Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates in the neck and TB6 in the bridge. I don't use the trem on it, and it is a wonderful guitar for that price. Very nice neck, very nice sound especially with the SD's and the coila-tap is great too.

Bottom line, the JS100 is a very nice guitar and especially if you don't use the trem (as I do), block it = more sustain, stability, and a wonderful axe wfor a decent price (especially if you get it used). Also, the transparent red finish is one of the nicest I have seen on a guitar.

I would swap the stock pickups for Dimarzio's or Seymours (see above) though, because the Ibanes INF pickups DO really suck !

Bottomline : pickups changed and fixed trem (or just not using it) = JS100 worth hours and hours of great playing !
