js100 fretboard

hi whats the difference between the fretboard of the js100 and the js1000. Do they feel similar at all in any way? does the prestige factor make a difference?

asking due to dilema of whether to get a new 1570 and sell my js100 ...played it, was ok although through a cack amp which i forogot ..not bad instrument it certainly looked the part.

thanks jon

Re: js100 fretboard

Well there is alot more attention to detail on the JS1000, but there both rosewood. The quality and attention to detail is probably about the only thing you'll notice. If I were you I'd just sell the JS100, and track down a used 1000 if thats what you want. Good luck!

It feels to me that the JS100 neck is smaller and the JS1000 a tad wider. I owned a JS100 for four years and once I moved to a JS1000 there was a diffrence.

Re: js100 fretboard

Well it's the same wood but:

Js100: medium frets

Js1000: warmoths #6105 (i believe the serial number is right check the site) narrow and tall jumbo frets

Not the same, and a very different feel...

My 2 cents..

Re: js100 fretboard

The back of the neckof the JS1000 is completely different...
The LOW E side is fatter than the High E side...

At ibanez they they call that Multi Radiused... DONT confuse this with the fretboard the fretboards are 9 1/2" and absolutely not multi radiused...Its the back that is "Multi Radiused"
