The finish is the only substantial difference, along with the hardware color. The 1200 also has a PAF-Joe in the neck position as opposed to the PAF-Pro in the 1000, but that's not worth considering if you're deciding between them. They are functionally the same guitar.

they are pretty much identical in every way, except like djohns74 said, They have a different body finish and the 1200 has different hardware colour and a different pickup in the bridge.


I had had both guitars in the past and each of them sounded great. I had to sell the JS1200 because i needed the money for other music stuff, which to me was important.

I wish they'd do a new color for the JS1000 already. I still haven't seen the JS1200 in person but if the color is indeed identical to the Satchurator, I'd just ruin the finish with drool anyway.

The 1200 is something to behold in person. I went through the decision process a few years ago and really wanted the flashy red color. It looks soooooooo good in person, pics online just don't do it any justice. Still, I want a white one (possibly even the 2400) now.

All of the JS colors look much better in person than in the pictures.
