(oops - link to the JS1200 not working, I'm too newb here)
They look pretty similar on paper with the exception of the pickups. If that's about it, I really do think I got a smokin' deal on this!
hmmm... you will get crucified if you take that question to the JS forum.....
headstock on R is angled back, on JS it is straight.
JS has neutered horns, whereas the radius horns are longer.
JS costs alot. radius are cheaper.
the necks are slightly different
the frets are different js has 6105 frets, i think radius are jumbo's
IMHO i think the differences are slight but..... over at the js forum they think that the differences are huge.
i am sure there are other slight variances....
