Ibanez JS6/JS2000

Dear Satch fans,

Posting a question for a friend: in terms of resale value, playing confort and tone, what are the differences between a JS2000 in basswood body and a JS6 in mahogany body? Which one would you prefer?

Much different bridges on those two. If you friend is used to playing guitars with floating trems then the JS2000 may be the better choice for comfort.

The JS2000 is a more comfy guitar and probably the better made. I have a JS6 and the bridge is simply not as comfy as the Edge FX on the 2000. Tonally I love the 6 though and have mine in drop-c where the mahogany really, really growls...

The JS6 is like a traditional guitar bridge and doesn't have the tuning stability. The mahogany does give it a nice sound. I prefer the JS2000 because it doesn't go out of tune and I like the bridge on it. I wish the JS1600 had still had the EdgeFX bridge, but with mahogany.

Personal preference obviously - I never played a JS2000. My JS6s are my favorite guitars. Gotoh handtail is plenty stable in my hands.

JS6 rules... Don't know what the other folks are doing but mine stays in tune just fine. Mahogany is great and very comfy guitar. And doesn't look like some cheapo just roadie-fixed a floating LPEdge to do it... Great guitar...

They stay in tune for just playing chords and normal soloing, but if you want to do two whole step bends on a guitar without a double locking tremolo your strings are gonna go out of tune. I have found that on my JS6 and JS1600 I need to tone down my technique if I want the strings to stay in tune.
