JS-1000 Sound is 'kind of' Weak

Does anyone else think the JS-1000 sounds kind of thin?

When I'm playing on mine for a while, then I plug in my Wolfgang, it's like "whoa" the Peavey sounds so much better.

It's not an Ibanez sound thing. I have a J-Custom with Dimarzio pickups that sounds great.

Maybe people like the tone of the JS series and it's just me?

It's just you. the sound of the JS is very distinct and almost vintage IMO.

When you say vintage... do you mean a single coil old strat sound?

It's got a coil tapping switch doesn't it?
And a high pass filter as well.

JS's have lower-power pickups - the bridge is similar to a vintage PAF humbucker and the neck is slightly hotter, but they are light-years away from an Evolution-type strength pickup.
