JS100 upgrade

Just wanna quickly pick your brains.
I've had a JS 100 forever (since '94/95 anyway) and it's on it's last legs. Recently got a Jem 7VWH which frees up the JS and i'm sorting it out. Just installed new pick ups (t-zone and a fred) and it sounds cool, but now i wanna upgrade everything else. Got the trem sorted, putting in a violet chrome pro edge.
But what i wanna know is, can i take all the electronics, pots etc and just straight replace them with the stuff on the JS1000? I'd imagine you can but i'm not sure and don't wanna buy all the stuff only to find i have to do more work on the body then i already need to for the trem.
It works out a lot cheaper than buying a JS 1000 (and i kinda love my 100 anyhow), which is what i really wanted all them years ago but was too young to realise the difference.
Cheers in advance chaps.

If you buy all the electronics that come stock on a 1000 there shouldn't be any problem putting them into your 100. Have fun wiring it *LOL*!!
