I've been needing a guitar for higher-gain stuff for a while, I like the JS guitars, and I love both pickups the guy put into it. Plus it's an effing JS for $170. You guys think I should go for it?

@ Thread title... holy? Eh. Crap? Pretty much. It's just another low-end ibby with the JS style body and neck with special pickups. It has an edge 3 bridge. I wouldn't get it.


Huh, could've sworn even then JS100's had Edge Pros...ah well.

it is a 2001 model, which is the pre-edge III era. but i hear that the trems in the older js100 still sucked.

Hmm...alright, what about this;

http://baltimore.craigslist.org/msg/989407229.html (Note; Humbucker will likely be replaced with a Seymour Duncan JB)

I know I should spend more than $75 on it, but after the holidays I'm strapped for cash, and I really need something that has either a tappable bucker' or single-coils so I can play my preferred tones, and has a humbucker in the bridge for heavier stuff.

I do have this old strat copy though, it felt pretty decent, and it's in perfect condition except for a broken tuner. What about repairing that and putting a Hot Rails in the bridge?

well, the trem probably won't hold a tuning unless it has locking tuners.

i reckon what you would want is a ernie ball music man or OLP.

I've a normal Fender strat that holds tune fine, and I actually intended to replace the tuners, as their a 6-in-line-attached set, and it's one of the tuners that's broken, so I don't think that wouldn't be much of a problem, but I suppose.

Music Man; http://cgi.ebay.com/BEAUTIFUL-ERNIE-BALL-OLP-MUSIC-MAN-MM1-ELECTRIC-GUITAR_W0QQitemZ110333815940QQcmdZViewItem How would that be?

OLP; http://www.billsmusiconline.com/olp-mm1fnat.html Would this work?

Apologies if the questions seem dumb, but I've never heard of OLP(><, and I only know of Music Man because of the Stingray.

^ Those are both OLP's. They're pretty much the Epiphone/Squier of the Music Man brand. I wouldn't ever buy one without playing it first, because they are very hit and miss.
