New JS 2017

So this was addressed in a previous thread but I figure a better title might help.
2017 brings the JS2480 Muscle Car Red with built in sustainer.

Re: New JS 2017

The color is nice, I'm not sure the price will justify the desire to have the sustainer, but it is a sharp looking JS.

I'm guessing it's the Dimarzio version of a sustainer pickup.

Re: New JS 2017

Satriani uses a Sustainiac (neck) which both the name of the sustainer pickup and the company that makes them. I assume the Magnetar is a Dimarzio bridge pickup but given that a magnetar is a real thing ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetar ) I would hope it is more interesting than a slightly modified PAF Pro. Not that there is anything wrong with the PAF Pro, but perhaps a stronger magnet, like a neodymium magnet, would be appropriate in this case.

Re: New JS 2017

Heavier fretwire, or is that just the lighting?

Re: New JS 2017

Probably just the lighting I think it's 6105.

Only one toggle switch for the Sustainiac?

Joe only uses 1 switch, the on off is the tone push pull pot.

Re: New JS 2017

I'll miss the coil tap but I guess I have a bunch of other JSs for that.

Re: New JS 2017

Hard to believe he beat Vai to the punch. Maybe the Fernandes thing was a hang-up?

Re: New JS 2017

As I missed out on the JEM777 30th, when is this likely to be out and have they release prices yet?
