JS Necks

I went to Sam Ash yesterday and they had 4 or five used JS guitars.
I tried three of them and one of them had a different neck than the other two.
All three necks felt different than I remembered. I have not played a JS guitar since the JS1 Js2 Js3 etc. were out. Back then I hated the necks on them. I remember them being very thick necks with very rounded fretboards. Then new JS100 JS1000 and JS? that had a fixed bridge, all didn't feel that way to me yesterday.
How many different necks are there on JS guitars over the years?

Re: JS Necks

Far as I know, they are based on a strat neck and haven't changed much over the years. After a certain point the profile was digitally modeled after Joe's favorite guitar.

Were you playing the new 24 fret version?

Re: JS Necks

the original necks were one way, the 92 93s are significantly different. A JS6 neck is much flatter feeling on the back. Anything after 98 seems to have a consistent feel to it and in my opinion feels better than any previous one. I guess in theory because they are all digitized to be the same way
