The JS1R is basically the JS1 reissued, as far as I can tell. It has the same specs, and it's basically the exact same guitar. The guitar has the normal Dinky body style with the following specs:

Bolt on maple neck
Reverse headstock
22 jumbo frets
12"-16" compound radius
Graphite nut
Two humbucker pickups
Pearloid dot position inlays
3 position blade switch
Two point point fulcrum tremolo

UTILIZATION

The nut on this was a big issue. It was cut too deep, and the strings would snag every time you bent a note. Despite it being graphite, these issues can still occur. The fret ends themselves could use a bit of a touch up as they were a tad sharp. The frets themselves were crowned decently, but you could notice they were a touch flat compared to certain other guitars out there. A nice level would make this a better playing guitar. These guitars are also known for having a big of a neck joint gap, so be sure to check that out as well. The bridge on this sucks, but what do you expect for something this cheap?

SOUNDS

The guitar has high output pickups, but it doesn't sound that great. The bridge is pretty bright sounding, and when you would roll down the tone knob, it would be very muddy. I couldn't get any note definition or clarity out of this thing. The neck pickup is pretty muddy, too. Clean tones were very bland, and I didn't even bother with mid gain tones. I couldn't comment on the middle position as I never use it. If I were to keep this guitar, I would recommend replacing the pickups with something better. Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio make great pickups that can be had very cheap on the used market.

OVERALL OPINION

You're better off buying something from the Japanese Jackson line than looking at this. This is cheap for a reason, and I'm not a big fan of these ultra cheap guitars. There are much better quality guitars to be had on the used market that play better than this. This could be used for smashing purposes or just some cheap thing to throw around, and considering the price it costs, it's pretty much what this guitar is geared towards.
