Ibanez JS2480 Joe Satriani, Muscle Car Red
Ibanez JS2480-MCR Joe Satriani Signature Overview by GAK:
So it's been 28 years since Joe Satriani's original JS model was introduced. Joe has worked through many models and endless tweaks and refinement from his original design which was inspired by the Ibanez Radius which sat alongside the original RG and Sabre in the 80's. So where we're at with this 2017 JS2480 is 24 frets, the deeper cutaway, the legendary original Edge tremolo (which needs no improvement!), the newly developed DiMarzio® Satchur8 humbucker in the bridge with a Sustainiac pickup in the neck! For a tonal innovator like Joe using a Sustainiac is no surprise- giving you infinite sustain on either the fretted note or a harmonic overtone, regardless of volume or whether you have a bunch of flat-out Marshall stacks for your backline! Professional finishing touches like the Titanium Ultralite tremolo arm and the supreme Prestige fret end finishing round out a truly exceptional axe.

An incredible piece of quality craftsmanship from the Ibanez guys in Japan. A noticeable difference in quality compared to the Indonesian models. Not knocking those...but you do get what you pay for. The Sustainiac pickup works beautifully and also sounds great when not in operation. I cannot fault anything on this beautiful guitar.
Love it! Sustainiac is incredible, easy to play, looks great, sounds great.
