JS100 going off to the Chromer!!!

More details to follow, but as soon as I get pics, I'll post them.

I've already seen a Jem body they've done, and it looks sweet.

And yes.... it is real Chrome too : )

Reasonably priced as well.

Re: JS100 going off to the Chromer!!!

That is cool, but it is a shame that it is a JS-100 and not a JS-1000. But I do look forward to seeing the results.

Re: JS100 going off to the Chromer!!!

Better to mess up a JS100 than a JS1xxx : )

But I'm fairly confident from what I've seen.

Re: JS100 going off to the Chromer!!!

Wow that is pricey. That cost more than the JS-100.

Re: JS100 going off to the Chromer!!!

Get a used JS1/JS1xxx for $900 or so and add in the Chrome finish, and you're still way below a JS10th/PRM

But hey... I'm taking one for the Jemsite Team

Re: JS100 going off to the Chromer!!!

I can only imagine these starting to pop up all over **** with the description "I don't know what kind of JS1000 this is". From the looks of it it'd be easy to sell it as a Chrome Boy to the less initiated of us.

Re: JS100 going off to the Chromer!!!

"Only" - $8500 is a tough pill to swallow

I had a real JS10th a few years back I bought for $2150 shipped...... but family needs came first

This should be a nice replacement/alternative

I should only be into it with DiMarzio's for pretty short money
