Js 700 bridge question

976 Views 13 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  moebius
Hi folks,
I am interested in perhaps purchasing a used JS 700. However, the pictures I have seen of the guitars I am thinking of buying show the bridge to be slightly angled so that the treble side is closer to the neck. This is what I see on Les Pauls and such. However, the pictures from the Ibanez website and catalog show the bridge to be straight across.

Can anyone who actually has one tell me whether the bridge is straight across or is angled?

I have a Japanese JS700 and the bridge is straight. The intonation is not great on the guitar but I think it's just the way it is, it's not anywhere near the quality of the JS6 or JS1600 I have. It sounds different thanks to the mahogany neck and the P90s and it pairs really well with my fender amp, but intonation and staying in tune is not it's strong point.
JS700s are fairly common, Japanese 700s are more rare. If it's Korean, I agree with Rich, just pass and wait for one that looks the way you want it to.
