Bit of a weird one this. I have a 1998 js1000 and my pals 2003 js100 has a neck I much prefer. I read something a while ago on Ibanez changing the neck at some point between 98-2002, along the lines of them changing it to a proper laser clone of joe's strat as opposed to a rough version (sometime between 98 & 2002?). So i've actually managed to find a 2003 js
100 neck this week & was wondering about picking it up and trying to fit it.
Knowing Ibanez though I foresee this plan going tits up, so I thought i'd see if the good people of this forum have any tips/know if this would work?
To coincide with this interestingly, when I was speaking to a local guitar tech here he commented on how some of the 100 necks of the early 00's were better than the 1000's. Go figure :S
Here is the information concerning the js
Made in 2003
25-1/2" Scale / 22 Medium Frets
Ibanez Square Heel Joint (2.222" Wide)
1-11/16" (43mm) Nut Width
Maple Neck / Rosewood Fretboard
