It was a quicky, was busy.

The 900 is such an offshore model that we don't know that much about it, what's on the spec sheet is about all we do know.

If that's the case then the 900 is the best deal in the series if it's only missing the coil tap for $200 less. For that much of a savings I wouldn't expect it to have the multi radiused neck, but then, specs are tough to come by.

Translating what the .jp site comes out

As for the neck of the JS you completed on end of the innumerable trial and error. The finger board where the earl is attached being harder than those of the general ヴィンテージタイプ from that, the fret where the back is high promises ultimate play ability. You adopt the left and right asymmetric neck by the hand craft, repel for the first time and long time repel and you can taste the feel like the ヴィンテージ * guitar which is packed. Black Pearl finish floats the high-class impression.

Sounds like babblefish is drunk..

The JS-900 was sold here in Holland. IIRC, it had the multi radiused neck

A quick glance at the 98 Euro catalogue (one I had to hand) indicates that yes, the JS900 does have same "JS-Shaping" neck as the JS10th and the JS1000.

It doesn't state whether the high pass filter is there, but it does say that the coil tap is not.

If the coiltap isn't there, than the HP filter is defenitly fitted on the JS-900.

So I'd say it's the DBK variant of the JS series.
