A signature model with a basswood body, DiMarzio pickups with coil-tap and JS neck.
The Ibanez JS24P Joe Satriani Signature Electric Guitar has every premium feature that the guitar hero requires to unleash his talents, but at a price that the weekend warrior can afford.
It starts with the Satriani body made of American basswood and continues with a JS premium 3-piece maple/bubinga neck that's been reinforced with KTS TITANIUM rods. The stability and sustain are amazing with a taper and radius that make fingering all 24 frets a thrill. The Edge tremolo bridge by Ibanez is tailored to provide extreme control and maintain rock-solid intonation with each use.
Soundwise, the JS24P delivers a huge range of tones. Wired to 2 humbuckers from DiMarzio is a Hi-pass filter on the volume knob(push/pull) and a Coil-tap switch on the tone knob (push/pull). The result of which is a total control over the sound that will inspire the best in those fortunate enough to make this Candy Apple beauty their own.

Comments about Ibanez JS24P Joe Satriani Signature Electric Guitar:
Let's start with the good stuff. This guitar is a tone machine. Awesome electronics and one of the best floating bridges I have ever played on. Stays in tune no matter how hard I dive bomb. Very well done in those regards, but there is a let down.
The milder issues which would not have prevented me from buying the guitar include the finish and set up. There is paint missing from the truss rod slot which normally doesn't matter, but this one doesn't have a cover, so you can see it. While the fret edges were nice and round, they put some gouges on the edge of the fretboard while filing them. That is just poor craftsmanship.
The major issue is the neck mounting. It isn't straight!. At the 24the fret I can measure 4mm from the outside of the low E string to the end of the fret. On the high E string it is only 2mm. Maybe the neck is fine and the bridge is mounted in the wrong place. I'm not sure which it is because I am no tech, but I do know those strings aren't sitting correctly over the fretboard. None of my other guitars align like that.
It also needs to have the frets leveled as I am getting some buzz, but I guess I should have expected that. I wish I would have bought a new one in person instead of a used one online because these issues would have been showstoppers.
Perhaps the mounting holes for the neck or the bridge can be plugged and re-drilled, but this isn't an entry level guitar. I expected better from the Premium line. It could be great if you get one that was crafted properly so make sure you check it out in person before dropping your cash!
