Jupiter Saxophones New Lineup

Jupiter recently refreshed and reduced its model lineup. Until a few weeks ago Jupiter was promoting its 1100 series as "intermediate" with no "professional" model.  Now they have clarified (I think) that this is their "professional" model. Now they say:

"The JAS1100 gold lacquered alto saxophone is a perfect example of the classic hand-crafted design practices that reside alongside state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. The JAS1100 is the perfect step-up alto saxophone for the committed student or practicing professional."

I've never been comfortable with the "student" "intermediate" "professional" designations. What do others here think of recent Jupiter products?

    If any changes were made to the JAS1100 to raise it to a pro level horn, they likely would have changed the model number for the purpose of controlling service parts, and dealer inventory control. This sounds like the same horn with simply a change in marketing strategy.
