JS-6 Gimme the scoop!

Hello, to all of you who have played one, does it play like a JS1000? Those are the only ones I've played, but I"m about done with locking tremolo. How's the price? The feel? Does it have the coil tap? Thanks for any info!

Haven't played one, but what i know is that they are rather rare to come by...there are few people on this forum who own one and i don't think they will let them go in the near future...They probably can give you lots of info on it though...

I'm currently on my third JS6, and wouldn't give it up for the world!

I've basically been lucky enough to find 3 that were in progressively better condition, my current one being dead mint. It doesn't really play exactly like a JS1000, because the JS6's were manufactured prior to the introduction of the multi-radiused JS neck profile. The neck also has a lacquer finish (which could be easily removed), whereas the JS1000 has the Prestige satin finish. Other than that, the body style & electronics layout is identical: FRED in the bridge, PAF PRO in the neck, high-pass filter on the volume control, coil-tap on the tone. They have the standard JS neck-joint and the JEM-style angled input jack. All 3 JS6's that I've had have been VERY light guitars. Very comfortable to play, and very toneful as well. The Gotoh fixed bridge is very stable, as are most fixed-bridges.

Currently, I've outfitted mine with all gold hardware, including some gold Gotoh Magnum-locking tuners. Coupled with the GraphTech StringSaver saddles, it's a killer axe! They've been popping up on EBay lately, but they seem to be bringing top dollar. I got my current one just a couple of months ago, so...they are out there. If you're looking for a non-trem JS though, you might give the JS2000CG a shot. They're great guitars, and are a lot easier to come by
