I have the exact same problem i love my two JS
guitars they are amazing! But i am looking at buying a new guitar soon. I really don't know which to chose. I have a 10+ year old js100 modded, and a awesome js1000 BTB.
The idea of the JS
-1600 and JS
-2000 seem good but i don't know wether i really want to put that much money down for a silver finish? I like the fixed bridge idea although IMO should be cheaper than a Lo-pro.
Secondly ive been looking at the JS1200 which the CA finish is killer but i don't know if a bright red finish is really going to fit with me.
Thirdly i would love a JS1000BP but i cannot get my hands on one without spending about 2-300 more than a 1200/1000BTB
I'm also looking at other ibanez guitars, RGA 321 which has a beautiful blue flame maple top, 24 frets and is arched rather than a standard RG.
Also looking at the RGT series, the RGT320Z RBB for some reason here is in the price range of a j-custom so it will take longer to save up for it. the RGT220Z NTF is good.
Some other Ibanez guitars floating around in my head are RG2820, RG3120, RG8570, RG9570
I don't like most of the finished on the S series, ive seen one good S series guitar with a blue flame maple body and matching headstock.
AANJ means all access neck joint.
This is a RGA121 with an AANJ neck. it gives more access than a standard neck with a neck plate. JS
series guitar have a tilted neck place and some wood cut to give you more than enough upper fret access. that is for 22 frets ofcourse.
Too many choice's in my opinion
