Anyone have Ibanez JS series experience? I played one in a store for a while and man that axe was COMFORTABLE all around - neck, body, contours, frets, trem... NICE playing fiddle.

I kina want one. :eusa_naug :doh:

You don't want that, Doc.
They give Ibanez a good name. :eusa_danc

All of them i've played were pretty much the same.
That says a lot about the consistency. :thumbs:
I thought the Fred and the neck pickup sounded good as well.

BTW: the neck feels more like a Fendre
than an Ibanez. Take that Fendre haters!

Ibought a used 2001 JS1000 a few weeks ago, and I love it. It is very comfortable to play. I like the feel of the neck better than the RG Wizzard necks. The pickups are great. It's real easy to get harmonics to squeal out of them.

Get one.

I think the doc is gassing
for a new guitar, he just
doesn't know which one.

A JS is still on the top of my GAS list.

But I'd have to unload something to make room.

It's a good axe doc. I have a thread about my old JS1000 somewhere in here.
The Fred pup is probably not what you're used to which is a lower output than your typical marzys, but great dynamics and quite versatile. More like a PAF. The Mo Joe is also a great neck pup (not sure which neck pup I had). As far as the neck goes...doesn't feel like a typical Ibby neck at all, and it's a happy medium between an RG style and a fatter strat neck. Also a very comfortable guitar to play. I personally still prefer the RG's but thats just me. :icon_bigg
Keep your eyes open for good deals....always new auctions on the Bay.

Any of the higher end JS models are good.
I've played some of the lower ones that are good as well.
