Hopefully also Rich will see this one.
I'm a huge fan of the old Radius design, which most people know from the JS
models (I came to know them from the js
models obviously). The one thing that puzzles me, the JS
bodies (until the 24 fretters) seem to be modeled after the '90s version of the Radius design. The radius line was sold until 93 if i'm not mistaken, and I have a 1992 model, which is MUCH MORE REFINED than the earlier ones.
The body is slimmer, the horns are less "bulky" and the curves are much more harmonious, the lower horn is considerably slimmer and the edges of the body, both where the arm rests and where the cable goes in, are slimmer. In the js
the jack is recessed (better design) but I'm assuming that could work also on the '92 radius design (since the jack is there anyways and there is plenty of space).
Now, is there anyone else that noticed the difference? Maybe Ashbass?
See here some samples:
1998 fat, JS
model using the same body shape
Finally, the 1992 Radius, slimmer and sexier. Check out the lower horn
