Ibanez JS24P Story
A few years after the Premium models were launch at Ibanez, this range hit the JS series for the first time with the JS24P in 2013. This guitar took most of the characteristics from the Prestige range, with a more superior quality than the entry-level models like the JS100 or JS600 had. This was the perfect compromise for affordable quality guitars with interesting features without customers investing too much.
The JS24P had a 24 fret Premium 3 piece neck with maple and Bubinga woods (the same woods that feature on the 2410‘s neck), a rosewood fingerboard, a rod in titanium inside and the beautiful abalone dots inlaid in the fingerboard. The body is made of American basswood like the original JS1 had back in 1989, and it’s painted with the same beautiful CA Candy Apple color that the JS1200 had.
On the pickup side, we have two humbuckers, the DiMarzio Mo’ Joe signature for the bridge and Ibanez made a compromise for the neck pickup, where they put the single-coil size DiMarzio Chopper. They choose this format for the same reasons as for the JS2400, to have both an interesting tone and good access to high notes with the 24 fret neck. For the electronic part we still have a hi-pass filter and a coil-tap. These are very interesting features because they extend the sound possibilities alot.
