You dont need 24 frets to play Flying in a Blue Dream, so the extra frets are not required...

i am not sure i like what they did with the neck and the neck pu on the 2400, the 1000 and the 1200 are just the color, i personally go with the 1000 in pearl black, which you can have for a lot less than the 1200. I have found that the paint on the JS models is very thin. Maybe that was just mine.

I'd probably go with the JS1200 but I love that red.

The Black Pearl looks very nice up close, but is pretty understated overall.

I can't get over the looks of the 2400, it just looks unbalanced and weird to me.

JS1000... Not that different from a 1200, except the pickups, which can be changed in the future if you really want to.

Those of you who have owned both a JS1200 and JS2400, is there a sound difference in the bridge pickup between the two?

The Pro Track on the 2400 I figure will sound a bit different but how much different than a PAF Joe?

Any feel difference between them? The 24 frets make it easier to play in the 17-21 region?

About to pull the trigger on one of them.

To have better access to the higher frets is never a bad thing.

Re: JS1000, JS1200 OR JS2400?!?!?

I went with the 1200 when deciding between the 1000 and 1200 a few years back. I liked the red and chrome hardware better than the black pearl and black hardware. The 1000 has a PAF Pro while the 1200 has the PAF Joe but honestly, I don't think they sound all that different and a pickup swap is a fairly easy thing to do afterwards so between the two, it really comes down to the color you prefer. Now, if they made either with a white, I'd get that over the 2400.
As much as I like the idea of a 24 fret JS styled guitar, I'm not a huge fan of the shape of the 2400. I'm sure it plays well and gives great upper fret access and it seems to be Joe's new cup of tea as he's mainly shown on stage and in interviews with one of his 2400s. That's just personal taste and to be honest, for Joe's stuff, I spend most of my time on the bridge pick-up so I'm not sure that you'd fully notice the neck pup difference as much - but I haven't had the pleasure to play one yet so those are just an on-lookers observations on the 2400...take with a heap of salt.
