JS6000 models have a mahogany body with hardtail bridge and made in JP. Most of the JS600 models made in Korea Factory.

Re: Js6000 Korea???

JS600s are all basswood I'm pretty sure, and hardtail. I have a black one, and I'm pretty sure they also made white.

Ths JS700 are mahogany and finished with a high gloss. They too are fixed bridge, but are similar to the Les Paul bridges. Some of those were Japanese, but I had a Korean one. Not sure the %-age that was made in Korea.

JS6000s are natural oil finished mahogany.

The JS6000 was also available in trans red finish with natural headstock.

To the best of my knowledge, no JS6000s were made in Korea.

I stand corrected. Never even seen a picture of a TR JS-6000 before I don't think.

Here's a nice link 64:

Is it wrong that every time I see someone post about a JS6000 I want to go kiss my sexy little Trixie (my JS6000TR)?
