JS2410 Sunken paint?

Hi,

Having given up on obtaining a JS1200 I'm looking at the JS2410, seen this at a UK shop at slight discount, http://www.gak.co.uk/en/ibanez-js241...r-orange/82811

The only one in stock has slight "sunken paint" on the front, is this common on alder bodied guitars? Anyone else have a JS2410 that can comment on here?

Cheers,

Chris

It is bad, looks terrible. Those guitars should be basswood capped before they're cut.

I'm guessing the 2450 will be the same.... I found you can only see it in certain light at certain angles.... Play well and people will be watching your fingers

Rich, do you get many JS2410s that do not suffer from this? Or do they all have it, but to various degrees?

I reject them all, I couldn't say what the percentage is. I wouldn't ask anybody to actually spend their money on one.

Re: JS2410 Sunken paint?

When you say sunken paint, what do you mean? That you can see the edges of the blocks used to make up the body?

Re: JS2410 Sunken paint?

The paint sinks into the pores of the wood, usually along the grain.

Doesn't sound like good news regarding the reject ratio!

The lines are straight, I'm not sure why, but it doesn't show grain like alder is. They're very straight lines running from tail to head.

Re: JS2410 Sunken paint?

That sounds like parting lines where the blocks of wood are joined. I've seen that on a bunch of guitars, even old basswood RG's.

Alright that's definitely not the same thing. I'd have to see this.
