Trade JS24P with JS1200??

Hi guys,

I am in a dilemma here. A friend of a friend came over this afternoon and tried my newly acquired JS24P (bought in July). She loves the guitar so much and its 24 frets that she is offering to trade her JS1200 which she bought last year (2011 model with the edge trem).

My gut feeling is to just go with it just because the JS1200 is a prestige model and that I don't really need the extra 2 frets anyway. I love the creamy sound of the JS24P though but I have not tried the JS1200 yet.

But i need to ask my fellow Ibanez players first. Should I go with it? will the JS1200 have the same creamy sound as the JS24P? The neck profile is similar based on Ibanez's website.

Sorry if this question had been asked before. I tried searching but I couldnt find anything that compare the JS24P and the JS1200. Its not that I don't trust her but this offer sounds too good to be true (prestige vs premium). is there a known issue with the JS1200?

Thanks guys

1200 all the way. Don't even mess around with the premium if you can get an MIJ one.

Ok. I will say i will positively consider and hook up with her this week. Is there anything i should look out for in a used JS1200? Your expertise are greatly appreciated.

nothing in particular to look out for, they don't have specific faults, just check everything works as expected, same as if you were buying a new one in a shop,

Turns out that she backed out (politely) from the offer. Her friends must hv adviced her against going ahead with it. Bummer. I should have said yes and went ahead with the exchange the moment she offered.

Anyway, thx guys. I will definitely make the exchange if another offer like this comes along.
