Questions about a JP12 acquisition

Questions about a JP12 acquisition

First post, so be gentle. And thanks in advance for any help!

I’m looking at a JP12-7 BFR. I’ve got a guitar for sale/trade and he offered this in trade. Seems legit. Has the BFR neck plate, and the SN (taken from a blurry vid of the case/candy) checks out as a JP12 but doesn’t specify BFR. Also, from image searches, I can’t seem to find a JP12 BFR that doesn’t have the BFR inlay on the neck, yet this one does. I’m crazy, right? It’s fully legit?

Second, has the piezo system changed over model updates? Are they all the same or is, say, they Majesty piezo a different iteration altogether?

Thing is, I’m looking for a Majesty, but my particular guitar is particular enough that it may take a while to sell outright, which is what I’d prefer. I don’t want to disclose the make/model so as to make this a sale/trade feeler, but I’m wondering if a trade for a JP12 would allow me to sell that more easily to fund a majesty (I know, how convoluted). Heck, I’m sure I’d love the JP12, but the end goal is a Majesty 7. Having said that, is $2k overpriced for the JP12? Because that’s what I’ve got my current guitar out there for, and I’m sure the market will tell me if I’m priced right, but I’ve been offered the JP12 in trade but I’m not sure where it should be when put up against my current guitar in trade.

Thanks again for any help, it’s really appreciated. Sorry for all the weird questions. Hopefully I’ll be joining the family by Christmas.
