I've been converted. JS FTW.

I've always liked the JS models, but never seen one or played one. Well, aside from the JS100. Today, I was at guitar center buying a mic cable and off in a corner I see a JS1000BP. I tried to will myself away, but I had to pick it up. I was in a hurry and I played it all of a minute, and now I'm in love. I love my RG, but the JS is so much more comfortable! The compound radius fretboard is 100% as awesome as I thought it would be. Never thought I'd like one that much, and now I will have to sell my soul to buy one.

Uneventful post I know, just felt the need to share my epic moment.

Nice, and if that wetted your appetite, wait until you play one set up by Rich. Amazing guitar.

Compound radius fretboard? Am I missing something?

I think he's referring to the misnomer that people think with the digital copy of joe's neck profile. It's not the fretboard radius that's compound, but the neck's are designed to be matches of joe's neck (speaking of the back that may have some wear on it from over the years of his hand sliding up and down it).

I'm still semi-GAS-ing for a JS1200, and I don't think I've even seen one in person. The JS body and necks are just really comfy to me.

Yeah, but I won't have a real flame under my butt until they're discontinued.
