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
22 jumbo frets
12"-16" compound radius
Two humbucker pickups
Pearloid dot position inlays
3 position blade switch
Two point point fulcrum tremolo
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?
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.
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.

Probably a Chinese ^ ^
India Cedre body
Fulcrum tremolo bridge
2 Jackson JE10 humbuckers
Channel thickness of medium and large enough compared my Stratocaster
22 frets, neck vissbr /> 2 knob: 1 tone, 1 volume
8 because the finishes are correct but without the handle a bit too wide and got my mic origins are mediocre.
Good Ergonomics (Health Start ...) and lightweight. Treble is a weak point it is gn by the handle on the last fret ....
APRS a. .. One grants, one branch is played ...
The pickups are mediocre base (at the same time for the price ...) replaced by a SH4 JB in Bridge and SH1 59 'in Neck something else ^ ^
I get an its quite thick and powerful, I play mainly Heavy and I'm not. The guitar is comfortable in this area.
The sound is not as hot as a sour or LP SRV Start but for the price ...
I play on a BOSS ME-70 a Marshall Valvestate AVT branch. It is very correct, I love the feature that makes the sound pretty vintage ... However all dlivre too low and got my lack of precision.
I put 7 with amendments (3 with micro base!)
I use it for 2 weeks, I bought because I wanted to have a second guitar "in case o. .." she plays her role very well. I like the look I bought a white gives it a heavy ct vintage sound that issued after the bugging.
quality levels Price: 180 on Thomann level price for a skyscraper can not be less CHRE, who make changes to the input range for I think 180 + price of microphones is a good investment.
