Ibanez JS1200 (or other JS) or a strat or tele?
(thinking of getting a new guitar - for playing all sorts, blues, rock, satch's stuff,...)
Thanks for voting

Id go with something more along the lines of HSS with a coil tap, best of both worlds if you ask me.

My recommendation is to goto a guitar store and play them. If your going with a strat though you may want a HSS config for a humbucker if you want to play lots of rock as well.

that js is sick
i can only say good things about mine. built like a brick and plays like a dream. its a versatile thing so you can manage strat and satch tones but i am yet to get tele tones out of it. i speak from experience.

Go with the JS, not only is it a brilliant guitar but it's different to the guitar you already have. Not to mention perfect for Satch tones.

+1, or HSH.

what's the budget? assuming you're willing to go to the price of the JS1200, something like a Vigier, Suhr or Tyler is bound to be worth a look...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Yeah but I'm trying to go lower than a JS... but if I really have to go that high...

oh, ok. if you are willing to go that high, then those i mentioned would be worth considering.

JS is plenty versatile. It already has sweet pickups, excellent trem, coiltaps, and there's a high pass filter switch on the other pot, which you can use for more wiring creativity if you don't find the filter useful. Plus the JS has that incredibly comfortable body shape. They're really underrated guitars, an original Ibanez design too.

If it has a coil tap then by all means go with the JS.

Very big gap from the styles these guitars are for.

Joe's are meant to be experimental with insane whammy playing, to soft melodies. It's floating trem is way different from a strat or a tele's style bridge...

the JS1200 also has Humbuckers, with coil taps so you can still get that single coil sound.
#18
I reckon JS will do anything a strat will do. It won't twang like a tele, but with parallel humbucking pickup wiring it just might do something similar.
