Ibanez Quality/ JS100 / S570DXQM
Hey all. First post here, and actually the second, as I just wrote something long, and detailed, went to preview, and lost it all. Doh!
In a nutshell, given the following options - which would you guys do?
1) Upgrade the stock pickups on a JS100 to PAF's or Freds
2) Purchase a new S570-DXQM
3) Save, save, save, and purchase a higher end model, like a JS1000 or a Prestige S
4) Buy a used S from Japan or USA
5) Save the money, and purchase nothing?
I'm really concerned about possible quality issues with the Ibanez S570, which is why I'm hesitant to get it, but I have always loved the way S's play, and that thing is beautiful to boot.
However, as it is in the same price range as the JS100, I'm concerned I'm going to be getting a new axe that is about the same as the JS100 - not an "upgrade" to it.
In your experience, how is the S series, lately, specifically, Korean or Indonesian made?
Without going back and re-writing the original 3 pages, I know there might be issues with clarity. If there is something specific you would like to know, please just post a response, and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Thanks in advance, and cheers!
