Re: JS1000 or JS1200? ready to buy.
I got a 1200, the only real difference is the color as previously stated. Otherwise the pickups are different, and it boils down the the PAF Joe has more output than the PAF Pro, on the 1000. So on mine the PAF Joe sits quite a bit lower than the FRED to even out the volume issue. Otherwise sound wise they are pretty comprable, both sound great. So updating the bridge to the MOJOE is just going to even out the volume output on the 1200, which otherwise can be done by lowering the pickup on the 1200. Either way its a killer guitar hands down. I hope this helps.
