What to do with my 100

Hey guys, I have a js100 that I got about 6 months ago. When I got it the pickups had been swapped for a mojo and a paf joe. I just had the frets leveled. I want to save money but im tired of the lo trs. I had a gotoh for it but my tech said the trs was staying in tune, and it was. But I cant abuse it at all. So should I replace the bridge or sell it and get another rg?

Oh another thing with the trs is that it doesnt have much sustain at all. If I got a OFR it should increase my sustain and tone...right?

For all the money you're putting into the JS 100, why not just get a JS 1000 or 1200? It's like putting high end Pirelli tires on a 1989 Mercury Topaz. It just doesn't make sense.

Re: What to do with my 100

Did you read any of that? The only thing I did to is was a fret level. I dont have 1000 dollars for a js1000. This would be a 100-150 dollar upgrade.

No need for the attitude. I was merely making a suggestion. You were talking about selling it anyways, and if you spent just a little more after selling it, you could easily upgrade to a JS 1000. This JS 1000 went for $740, including a Satriani strap and Vox Satchurator pedal (!!!!):

This one went for $860:

This one sold for $725:

Do yourself a favour and drop the Gotoh in it. So much better than OFR and it's got locking studs too.

I might do that, but I hate the arm holder.

You hate the arm holder? Jeez I think it's the best design out there. All the pros of the OFR and Edge design and none of the cons.

Not to hijack this thread or anything, but could someone point me to this Gotoh trem that everyone raves about?

Thanks, -cp
