Differences in the JPM models

I was just interested in what the differences are in the JPM series of guitars. I noticed that they generally sell for very different prices ie JPM-P1 vs JPM-P4.

Re: Differences in the JPM models

i think the P1 priced much higher because it's limited only to 250 pieces ( i read the ad at GW). but I'm not sure how much the make the P4.
I love the P3 among those, but nothing can beat the 90 HAM.

Re: Differences in the JPM models

There were also some finish differences on the back of the necks. Some were lacquered and some had more of an unfinished/satin feel (later models I believe). Rich may know more about that. But I've either owned or played them all and that was a distinct difference I noticed.

The 90th sounds somewhat brighter due to the ebony board and flamed maple top.

Re: Differences in the JPM models

The 90th is brighter??? I played a P4 once and I thought it was bright enough!

I'd love to get a JPM-90HAM and a JCRG-Art1! They complete themselves perfectly!
