buying a js

I was thinking about buying a new js1000, the only color is bp though. You think I should wait to buy one in the future, that has different color options, or just buy a bp because it is going to be so long before they come out with any different colors? My guitar is kind of jacked up, so I am leaning towards just buying the black pearl, although I hate the color.

Re: buying a js

well you can buy one used in mint for $800-900 if you look hard.. That is a good deal and they are very nice guitars, especially for that price. So I wouldnt worry as much about color as much

Ya they are very nice guitars for the money, and money is not really a factor for me, so think I might just buy a new js, and get a sweet paintjob in the future, because I hate plain black so much.

I would wait for the new colours (2004 should already bring us a new JS) since I find Black Pearl really BORING. You could also try looking for a used BTB (if you like them).

If money is not a problem maybe you should consider the higher- end models like the 2000 CG or (why not?) the 90th, the 10th or even the Y2k. That's what I would do if I had enough money in my pockets.

I like that js2000cg color a lot, but it has a fixed bridge, and I need a tremolo. I wish they made a cg with a lo pro

why not try an s series, they are basically the same except the pickups but they have the new tremolos and more color options

They are not the same. the js neck is still better then any s-series neck, the body shaping is different and the zr-trem is still ****

but the btb finish is very nice i love it! if you need a cool finish, ask rich for a chrome boy maybe he finds one for you

It really pisses me off when people say the JS and the S series are the same.

They are not.

I think the Js's gor a more "open" sound like the S-Series but this is subjective and sentimental the js is still the best ibanez guitar ever made
