Hello folks, I'm new here.
I own a Parker NiteFly.. It has a floating tremolo that can be fixed by a screw. It has 22 and something frets, and have perfect action.
If i buy a JEM7V i have 24 frets and super low action lower than my Fly i'm sure.
If i buy a JS
-2000 i have a Fixed bridge, verry good sustain, somewhat higher action than the Jem but around what i'm used to with My Fly.
I am sure the Jem is a fine instrument. But is way way way overpriced. And the gold hardware will wear down as i'm sweating to much.
-2000 is more to what i'm used to but different in that it has a fixed bridge is weighs less has a humbucker in the neck and bridge (NiteFly only bridge). On the JS
the humbucker can be switched to singlecoil (coil tab switch). Looks fantastic. Now i only have to find one to test.
That's my opinion. I just don't want two instruments that are to different from eachother but different enough. Tonal wise and weight wise. I think experimenting with different tunings will be easier on the JS
than on the Fly cause of the trem.
Also what i'm scared of with my Fly is its technology. Being in Europe here if there's something wrong with the frets its not standard they are glued and bonded and are Hardened Steel frets so a tech guy can't do a thing about it.
The Ibanez's are
more conventional and can be handled buy tech guys.
And did i mention its a lot cheaper...
(Man i'm losing sleep about this)
P.S. PLEEEAASE ADVISE ME I'm TRYING TO DECIDE BETWEEN JEM / JS
