Smile js100/js1000

The js100 chrome post got me to thinking. i have always thought the js100 and js 1000 bodies are the same except for the electronics and hardware. i guess the trem rout is different too though. is this correct? obviously the finish is different too but i would think the basic shape and locations of all the parts are identical.

Re: js100/js1000

There is a post I ran across here on the trem crossover (Which Trems fit which Routes), but from what I've found after breaking mine down, I have the following to offer:

On my 2003 JS100, I have an Edge II, which looks like it uses a Brass Knife Edge Plate (Looks like you can disassemble the Trem to swap it out) and brass Trem Posts/Inserts (Same deal, but do it before you refinish it).

So in the long run, it won't out last the high end trems using hardened steel, but if you're not a big whammy bar user, you can get some descent life out of the setup.

I've never sanded into a JS1/1xxx finish, but the finish on the JS100 looked nice and sanded nice and didn't sand through past the color coat all that easily, so that seems to be pretty good as well.

One thing I'm not a big fan of, is Ibanez seems to have left TOO LITTLE real estate around the trem posts; to the point the wood can crack vertically from the side that faces the trem block.

Easy fix with some epoxy, but still, something to keep an eye on if you are upgrading the posts.

Re: js100/js1000

The necks are different considering one is prestige and the other is Korean. Oh the 100 is made in Korea and the 1000 is Japanese. I have a 100 with dimarzios, I bought a replacement tremolo but the lotrs doesnt really go out of tune for me. I guess its just set up well. Having said that if I could go back I would have saved for a 1000 but its all good I cant complain with my 100.

Re: js100/js1000

Also the guitar body on the js1000 is slightly slimmer, and a lot lighter....
