Re: Restoring a 2002 JS1000
I had a similar experience except with a 2006 - those are great guitars to find for cheap.
Route I went was to swap out the Cosmo Black hardware with Chrome hardware from a JS1200 - fortunately I was able to sell the JS1200 with Cosmo Black hardware to get some $$$ back.
At the end of the day, I had the guitar custom painted with a JS25ART finish: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AqLwm-X6--9hgpZP..._GSDQ?e=ksFEf6
Good luck on your project!!!
