Re: JS1600

I have all the fixed bridges except 6000 (I don't like inlays). I think the 1600 feels significantly better than a JS6 does. I would also do what @jemsite is talking about and get another 1600 for a good price and have it turned into a JS6 maybe. My JS700 I love (my only inlay, but it says JS Custom at least). JS2000 is in my top 2 JSs of all time.

Re: JS1600

I actually preferred my 1600 sanded to my JS6 (Which I just sold).... here is the 1600 before and after sanding.

Re: JS1600

Perle guitars makes a JS one piece mahogany for $270. Its for an AANJ, which is why I was thinking about grabbing an older Prestige. I have no idea of the quality of work, but he gets good feedback on ebay.

Re: JS1600

love the silver ... mine is not being stripped... it's in the photo above post #2. I would consider stripping a very cheap 1600 as one will surely became available.

Re: JS1600

Wait, thought you liked that color? HA! The mahogany is great and the JS6000's are pretty tough to find. Does your JS1600 have a slightly goldish tint to the silver? The one I looked at did, but I thought it might just be stained from cigarette smoke.

Anyone in the USA who can do this for approx. that cost PM me please.

Re: JS1600

understood, a bad neck can be a deal breaker bummer. The more rare a signature model guitar is the more expensive they typically are. Sure demand is less for fixed bridge JS models but the sparkly silver finish really awesome vs the JS6 and JS2000 (and JS700) imho the best one of them all yet.
