The Ibanez JS guitars
Joe is using a couple interesting Ibanez JS guitars for the Surfing to Shockwave tour. First of all, he kicks in the show with a beautiful JS25ART he designed himself, tuned in Db/Ab/Db/Gb/Bb/Eb. Then he brings back the first JS2410 prototype which has those MCO racing stripes, a chromed Di Marzio Mo’Joe pickup on the bridge and a Sustainiac on the neck pickup.
