Very old Ibanez Js1

I have a JS1 sn:J000024 from about 1988 or 89. 24th made.. in mint cond. With original case. Bought a new tremarm though cus the old was broke. Think about maybe selling it cus i never play it. Maybe get a SG or LesPaul instead. Or should i save it for a rainy day perhaps? If someone wants to buy it gimmi a holler and i'll think about it.

Peace!

The Ibanez wiki says the JS1 officialy appeared in 1990.
Maybe a lost "JS custom" like in the pic of this page ?

Re: Very old Ibanez Js1

Ive heard the first JS1 came out 1988 but i must be misinformed then. Its an early 1990s then. The only thing that is different with my js1 against later models that it doesent have JS1 in the headstock. Its only the Ibanez logo on the headstock. White with dual humbuckers with coilsplit and treblebleed. Haven had time to take pictures. Where to put pictures then? Or should i link to some?

Re: Very old Ibanez Js1

It's a 1990. That's the first year. I have a guitar with a serial number just a little higher than that v

Re: Very old Ibanez Js1

That's very nice, and rare.

Outside of the JS Series script on headstock found on common JS1000s, is it exactly the same guitar otherwise?

I really love rare stuff and there are other 'unnamed' guitars out there which collectors drool over so this one you have should always be a keeper. I would simply keep it and buy the Gibson you want later on.

At vintage store near me, a Paul Reed Smith dealer of new and used, they have a couple of early era Paul Reed Smiths when he was in mom's garage and headstock has inlay but no "Paul Reed Smith" logo and those unnamed ones are very rare. The designs are slightly different than current PRS models but the giveaway are the flying bird fretboard inlays. And early Santa Cruz Guitar Company boutique acoustics only have label inside guitar but don't have commonly found headstock or fretboard inlay logo.

It looks the same but i dont know the exact specs of the JS1000 though.
Why im maybe selling it is that i rarely play it cus i play mostly blues and classicrock. And I dont want to gig with it cus its in such good cond.

Ive got an $1700 offer for it and thinking about selling it and get a LesPaul or SG instead. But the js1 is so amazing to play and sound really good.

Haven't decided 100% if I want to sell it yet though
