I'm thinking about trading my MIM strat for a js100, I've heard mixed reviews on musicians friend but I trust the people here over MF reviews. I play everything and the coil taps appeal to me since I imagine it makes the guitar very versatile.

So I'm asking for anyone's thoughts on the guitar for those who own it or have played it. I'm obviously going to play it before I buy it but It's about an hour drive and I want to know the drive will be worth it.

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.

I've never been a fan of low-end Ibanez signatures. They're not necessarily bad guitars, but you're mostly paying for the artists' name. Of course this is also the case with more expensive signatures, but at least their quality and resale value tends to be a lot better.

If you want something similar to the JS, just go for a nice S (better trem, yet cheaper).

yeah, exactly. i mean the cheaper signatures are basically cheaper ibanezes for the same price as pro-quality ibanezes. it doesn't make much sense. either get an s (similar quality, but better trem and about half the price), or spend the same as a js100 on an rg1570 (better quality).

shitty. Thanks everyone. I'll just save up for a high end ibanez.

If you really love the JS shape, try to find an old Radius (540R), they're what the JS was based on and they're relatively cheap these days, still great guitars though.
