So since the 2400 has the original Edge, you have zero argument, correct?
If Prestige isn't what it used to be, EBMM is currently a shadow of the decent guitars they used to be..........
Ok guys, chill please. Let's not turn this into a fight.
I'm interested in the CURRENT range of the JSs primarily because of the Edge trems.
But curiously, why do you say that EBMM guitars are currently a shadow of the guitars they used to be? Other than the Silos having the plain maple necks, the signature range has always been top notch, and nothing has changed about their processes. So where's the decline in quality?
My 4 year old JP6 and 1 yr old JPX7 are some of the best guitars I own and have played. The only thing giving me severe gas on a 7 string is the current JCustom 7 string, but that pricing is crazy...
I have both a JP6 and a JS
(JS1600) and I love both but for different reasons. That being said, what don't you like about the frets? Because that's probably the only thing similar about the two guitars. If you like the JP6 features but just not the frets have you though about a JPX? I think it has bigger frets (along with the JPXI) although the neck is painted instead of waxed.
I do have a JPX. 7 string, that is. I like those frets fine. Maybe I should be more circumspect. The JP6's frets bug me because of the thin neck. The JS
has a thicker neck, so perhaps those frets might not bug me too much. The painted neck on the JPX7 is fine. Ridiculously smooth. (I have dry hands) I like taller frets. Not necessarily wider. The J customs have great feeling frets, but if I switch the frets on the JP6, then I need to raise the nut, which is not a good idea, as our handiwork in my region on lacquered stuff isn't too hot.
