    Dragged this Ibanez JS-1 home today for a very decent price. It has some cosmetic things but nothing that affects playing, only the eye.

    Set it up the way I like and plays like a dream. Like the link between a strat and a Jem.

    Wow!! Super line up. Nice score on the Satch model. The others are killer especially the 90th and the FP.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, the 77FP is going to grave with me. Had it for 23 years now. An ´89 model. No one would even buy it for it has so many battle scars :D

    Never been a floral Jem fan, but those aged pink pickups are friggin' awesome! I bet it plays like a dream!

    Yeah, it's one helluva guitar. Really good to play. No other guitar I've ever played has sounded/felt anything like that one.

    That stratocaster is a player series, made in Mexico. A few times I went into a guitar store to try out Strats and that one felt the best among the ones they had (price range 300-3000€).
    Color wise it's my Yngwie tool, though it ain't the real deal.

    @tender_insanity can you tell us a little more about the blue-metallic-stucco model? It’s beautiful. Was that a custom job or a standard model (15 seconds of google and I was exhausted. Definitely not lazy at all)?

    The JS guitars are seriously underrated. Every Japanese one i played back in the 10 years ago was a monster player.
    Your collection is great too, really well rounded.

    Yeah, there's something in those 80's/90's Ibanezes that make them very good. I mean, nothing wrong with the '98 jem90th but it's different.

    Yeah, I've got all styles pretty much covered. Only an LP or a Tele is missing but LP's don't feel comfortable and I hate Telecasters' appearance :p

    Get a Gibson V, they're les paul-ish enough, swap out the pickguard and put a lipstick pickup in the neck, and bam you've got an abomination. That covers your missing sonic territory.
