NGD!!! JS2000

Woohooo!! I have been wanting one of these again since 2004 when I had to sell my new one due to a job loss.

Great shape besides the previous owner drilling a hole for a Roland. There are two holes actually but the other is covered by the pickup cover.

Haven't played it yet because it came at lunch and it is 9 deg here, the high E was REAL buzzy/muted due to how cold the guitar was. The place I got it from had detuned it, about 3-4 steps down which I wish they would not have done, the neck has some backbow to it.

I love the look of these things and really wanted a hardtail.

"Had" a MIDI. He took it out, hence the hole. I'm not worried about it really. I thought about filling it and touching it up.

800 shipped. Got it from a used guitar shop in California. The rest of the guitar is near perfect.

Re: NGD!!! JS2000

I really believe that this is the best way to go hardtail PLUS have the tuning benefits of the locking trem system...

Looks great.

Where's the trem bar go in, though?

Re: NGD!!! JS2000

Funny story about my first JS2000.

I really wasn't very good player back in 2004 (not that I'm a pro now but..) when I had this guitar before but I remember playing it and everything sounding like crap. It was my first guitar with a hotter pickup set and my technique was horrible, everything would squeal and string noise was a big issue. At that time, I didn't mind having to sell it because it I just wasn't ready for it yet.

Now it's 2011 and after playing this guitar tonight I know why I had so much trouble, the harmonics on this thing are incredible, it will squeal and scream so easy and the tone just sings!!!!
