    JPX vs JPXI

    Other than body color and the 3 way as opposed to the 5 way are there any other differences. Also no black hardware on JPXI. Anything else I'm missing?

    I think the neck is thinner on the JPXI and the trem baseplate is larger and that the body on the JPX is chambered.

    Stainless steel frets too.

    The body shape looks the same as on the JPX, but are there any differences? Also, what is the middle position on the pickup switch? Is it the same as the older JP models?

    So the JPXI is more of a BFR with a bigger body and the jpx is the only one chambered :/
    Maybe it'll affect the price mark

    With these specs, especially the lack of the 5 way and the lack of chambering, I think it's safe to say I won't be buying one. I'll probably go for another JPX7 and mod the death out of it while keeping the other one stock. Heh...

    Sad... the flatter radius and the stainless steel frets would have been great to try. But the thinner neck will kill my hand that already hurts when I play a neck too thin for my tastes.

    The JPXi is about 300 less on the list than the JPX, probably due to lack of chambering.

    Hmmm if I was rich, I would try a custom order of a Chambered JPXI with a greater color
    It would be the most awesome guitar I would ever touch

    ebmm is not a custom shop; even if you're rich.

    interesting...I thought chambering was looked on favorably. my jpx is alive.

    Both the JPX and the JPXI have the same List Price ($3500 for the 6 and $3700 for the 7). No additional charge for the stainless steel frets, thinner neck, and new tremolo!
