JS1000 or SV5470
I am enlisting some of your knowledge. First off yes I am trying to get my hands on both guitars to see which I like better, but the SV5470 is a hard one to track down in stores. I live in a big city, but I guess SV5470s are not really a big seller. There is a guitar show in April, which I will try and get my hands on one then.
But I would like to know from any of you guys that may have played both, which do you prefer? Basically I like the slim bodies that both guitars have, which is what I am looking for, and I would like to have the coil tap option so that I can have the variety of single coils on the guitar.
JS1000, has 2 HB Pickups, which I really don't use a middle pickup so its not needed like the SV has. My current Ibby had 24 frets, and I don't really play much higher than 21. The difference between the necks, I currently have a Wizard I neck, and played on a squire neck for many years, so either neck should be fine for me.
The sustain issues with the SV5470 consern me, as the drop off is really steep from what I have heard, and I like to do some leads that would have some real emotion behind them, and then have it cut off suddenly would kill it. But I like the color options for the SV5470 better, but that is not a deal breaker for me.
Those are some of the main points that I am contemplating, but I would like to hear from you guys that have played both, what you liked and disliked.
