some help, please!

I got an JS-110, and I paid U$739,00 for a used one. try to keep in mind that I´m from Brazil. so, things are a little expensive here...
well, I´d heard a lot that the JS-100 are not better than Rg350. but an new RG350 is about U$ 565,00. did I made a good thing by buying that JS?
a new js-100 is about U$1130,00. I believe that I can get U$870,00 by selling my js.
the serial number says that my js was made in 1995. I guess that´s why it has a incredible sound when it´s not pluged. and also has no damage on the body and neck as well.
so:
1- should i sell my sj-100 and buy a new rg350?
2- change the pick ups and hardwhere would be just fine?

thank everyone

I wouldn't swap a JS100 for an RG350 (a 550 maybe, but not a 350). Change out the trem and the pickups and you will have a pretty nice guitar. The real issue with the JS100 is that it is a good bit overpriced for what you get stock, IMO.

I had a JS100 for years, as long as you swap pickups and don't abuse the trem, you should have years of fun with it

Same as the others said really.
Swap out the TRS trem for an Official Floyd Rose, and then swap the pickups out for whatever you like. DiMarzio's of some sort are usually the pickup of choice though. Then you should have a fine, fine guitar.

i was afraid that an rg350 with dimarzio pickups could be better then a js100 with dimarzio.
