    Style of Music: blues, rock, surf

    Experience: hobbyist

    "Versatile Genius."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Joe Satriani has designed this beautiful guitar with an eye towards sonic flexibility. Baby, it flexes all kinda muscle from metal to blues to jazz to country to well, it all. You can get what I mean by checking out the song bites on Amazon. com for his new cd "Dr. Satchafunkalous and the Mysterion of Rock". IMHO, his best work. That said, man if you're seeking that one tone...it's an almost. I still love my Fender Std Tele.
    Feature:
    Nice top o'line case. I like the high pass filter and the coil tap option, but with coil taps the tone just sometimes seems thin. The filter helps. The neck is outrageously great: slick and easy. The body has a light and comfortable feel...easy to play for hours. I'm a DiMarzio fan (vs Seymour Duncan) so the tone's a no brainer for me. This baby stays in tune!!!! Not crazy about the tiny teflon washers on the trem bar though.
    Ease of Use:
    As I said before, this is a beasty for all types of music from shred to jazz. It is comfortable and easy. The tones are easily switchable on the fly. No manual except online, but no biggie. If you are new to Floyd Rose trem system...do yourself a favor and study up on tuning or you'll break your strings.
    Quality:
    Except for a bit of burring on the neck of mine, this guitar is outstanding. The finish is amazing. I got the JS 1200 (red) first and was so distracted by the depth and beauty of the finish that I wasn't playing. Sounds lame unless you're a fan of classic cars in candy apple red, then you'll know what I mean. I exchanged it for the rich JS1000 black pearl. The overall quality rivals high end competitors & makes them look overpriced. I've owned a few. Oh and here's something that I've never experienced before: each JS Ibanez that I tried was virtually the same in feel, tone & setup. The Japanese techs are unsurpassed here. If you've played alot, you know each guitar differs due to cut & wood type, setup, etc. All rebel individuals. Not so much with the JS...it's like a samurai sword.
    Manufacturer Support:
    N/A @ this time.
    Value:
    If you like what its' got, it's worth it.
    The Wow Factor:
    sleek & sensual. for the rest, see above
    Overall:
    like I said, versatility has its limits and so if you've got a jones for a Gretsch, Ricki, Tele, etc., this won't replace those iconic guitars. But this really is a sweet guitar that takes on all comers for all styles of play. Let's face it: if a guitar makes you want to practice scales & modes all day...it's an outrageous, outstanding guitar. This JS1000 is that and more.
