JS 1000 vs. 100 - Vote, real or not?

I have read MANY times here that Jem owners would say that a 555 is not a real Jem. *My friend owns one and people tell him sometimes "Sell it, and get a real Jem" or something similar to that I suppose. *Would you people say the same about a JS 100? *Saying that the 100 is not a real JS? *Or is the opinion different about that guitar? *I have played a 100, and I own a 1000 BP, and the 100 pales in comparison. *Anyway, just wondering your opinions

JS 1000 vs. 100

I've owned a JS100, and it is what it is. It's Korean made (inferior and inconsistent quality compared to Japanese made), Ibanez AH pick ups, lo-trs2 trem. If you upgraded those three points, you'd have a JS1000. It's cheaper than a 1000 and you definitely get what you pay for.

Just my $.02.

JS 1000 vs. 100

To tranform a JS100 to a JS1000 you'd also have to put in the extra pull-switch. Also, multi-radius neck...for all the difference that would make.
I've played both and the 1000 is supreme, but I do think the JS100 is relatively good value for money and the trans red is sweet. Just needs a good trem to rock though.

I agree with you guys on that. *Would you consider the 100 to be a "real" JS model though? *I know that Jem owners feel like owning a real Jem is like having a new religion, and many seem biased towards the 555. *So what do you think?

I also say that, you dont have to have a "real" Jem or a Js1000 to be a great player... *Sure, i would not settle with ibanez pickupps and a lo trs, but it is not necessary to pay x$ to be a good player..

Of course not. *You're right, but it sure feels great to know you've got a top of the line guitar!

That's a nice axe. *It's actually BTB though (Burnt Transparent Blue) there's a Jem that has the BSB. *Both finishes are nice though. *Back to the topic though, I would consider the 100 to be "real". *It's a lower end signature model, but it's signature none the less.

I would die for the TBB on a JS1000, but I live in the USA and the only way for me to get one is from Rich, which I just might do.

Not to mention high pass filter and special wiring for the coil splitter to make a 100 a 1000... but if you actually do go all the way through with that, it would be very close to a 1000.

The Chromeboy, or JS10th, is actually built of luthite with chrome over it. *Joe's real one is basswood with chrome over it. *So, pretty much yeah it is just a JS1000 covered with chrome. *I myself think that my favorite Satch guitar is the Crystal Planet, but right now I'm hooked on JEMs (7VWH) and EVH guitars (Axis, Wolfgang).

I guess nobody would turn down a free Crystalplanet. But they cost a fortune. Better start lying... (bad joke)

The 10th is luthite? The CP is lucite? Is this right?
I don't know why they would make the 10th with more traditional woods like American or Asian basswood.
