Re: Should I buy js1000 (ive got a js100
I also started with a JS100 some years back, it was a transparent red. Now I have a JS1000 and going for a JS1200 too, I hope soon.
The JS1000 is a lot better guitar than the JS100, way way better. The differences it's not only bridge, pickups and electronics, it's also the neck profile. The JS1000 has a more confy profile, and Ibanez says that it they scaned Satch chrome boy's neck, and that is exactly the way they carve the necks for the JS1000 and JS1200, that is why it feels like broken in already even being a new one. Another great difference it's the finish, way better too.
Once you consider the differences, the price for the JS1000 or JS1200, it's a better deal than the $700 for a new JS100.
My Advice, go better for the JS1000 or JS1200, you won't regret it.
