Just bought a JS1000

I just purchased a JS1000 new at GC. I originally bought another brand/guitar(embarassed, should have known better, ...) the other day and re-evaluated my my purchase. So, I went back to swap it for an Ibanez. The selection wasn't that great but they did have a black pearl JS that was on my list. It feels and plays great with 9's so I can't wait to put 10's on and I'm excited I don't have to swap the pu's. The gold Ibanez logo on the HS is cool too. I have one question regarding the serial number(s). The sn# on the headstock/Team J Craft sticker and stamped neck-plate sn# are different. Is this normal?

Your rg320q should actually have an edge pro 2 on it instead of an edge pro. Just fyi.

Haha! I'm a fan of Gibson Flying V's and have two already. I saw one with a natural finish and gold hardware and it was giving me gas. A friend of mine wanted to go to GC so I figured I'd see if they had one. The V was cool but I was reconsidering my purchase the next morning.

When I got to GC the next day I was anxious to see the Ibanez selection(haha). They only had a handful of abused $2-300 range axes and no Prestige guitars. well...... hidden in the corner was a JS1000. I checked it out and that was it. I would've never considered this guitar since I'm an RG fan but I was amazed with the comfort and playability. The pu's sound great too.

I'm not a fan of buying guitars from GC for the obvious reasons. I would've preferred to order this through my local guitar shop and been the only one to touch it aside from my dealer. Lesson learned.
