Ibanez JS 2015 signature Satriani
The year 2015 is a very particular year for Ibanez guitars and Joe Satriani. The Ibanez JS 2015 definitively adopted a 24 frets neck with a single coil-size humbucker for the neck pickup. With a new Prestige JS guitar, a entry-level JS and a collector JS guitar, 2015 is truly a Grand Cru!
The JS140, affordable and classy
The Ibanez JS140 takes over the JS guitar that has been sold for the longest period, the JS100, with a 24 frets neck thats meets new Infinity RD and Quantum DiMarzio pickups and the new JS ergonomic cutaway, bringing it up-to-date. The neck has a 400mmR and the Edge Zero II features as the bridge. All the principal features to have a true JS guitar between your hand, that’s the purpose of the JS140.
We announce a new video test for this guitar.
The JS2450, a Prestige model
The Ibanez JS2450 is the second JS guitar having an alder body, a rare feature that was exclusive to the orange JS2410 and except for the finish, they are exactly the same axes. The combination between the “Muscle Car Purple” MCP, a deep purple sparkle and the chrome pickups is unexpected and very effective. The 3 pieces neck with maple and bubinga brings a good presence in addition of an attractive visual aspect. The DiMarzio pickups are the guarantee to have the Satch tone, and the Ultralite Tremolo Arm the best comfort possible for playing.

The JS25ART, a collector piece of art
Indeed they are celebrating their 25 anniversary of their collaboration, making 50 collector models of the Ibanez JS25ART, a high quality and ultra rare guitar featuring Joe’s personal artwork. The neck featuring is the finest neck a JS guitar has every had, only 56mm width at last fret and a 19mm thickness at first fret, and that’s an technical feat if you consider that the 24 neck is obviously longer than the great majority of JS guitars that are 22 frets.
25 models are alloted to the USA and the other models are shared out worldwide, click here to discover all about the Ibanez JS25ART.
The production of the revolutionary JS2400, that introduced the 24 frets neck in the JS series and new JS body shape, stopped. Meanwhile, the JS1200 celebrates his 11th anniversary with his iconic “Candy Apple” CA red color, and it’s the last JS guitar with a 22 frets neck produced.
