You mean the JS 100?

I think he means the S-470.


It does not have a Floyd Rose, it has a ZR trem

I don't like the JS models, the neck is uncomfortable, and I'm not a fan of Floyds, I mean they sound fine and stay in tune, but I just don't use a tremolo enough to justify it. Plus the basswood body on the upper end JS's doesn't have the punch and tone of alder. THe fretboard that I played was hard, and wasn't fast at all, and the pickups were just ok, but not worth 1300 or whatever it costs.
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

RPotts the model you might have played may have been the lower-end js-100 model, because IMO, the js series is at least decent. but whatever floats your boat.

the S series is not modelled or designed like the JS series. first of all, the body is extremely different, i find that the JS is much more comfortable (something to do with the aerodyne design). as well, the necks are really different, the S has a much flatter neck while the JS has a larger radius. i also think the JS has smaller frets. lastly, the S is made out of mahagony while the JS is made out of basswood. huge differences, they are not the same guitars by a long shot.

our thoughts dont really matter, by the sounds of things you like this guitar a lot, and any s series guitar is good, sz, sa and all that are entering possible dodgy territory but you said s, and the s eries are good
