2023 Ibanez JS-3 Joe Satriani Signature Guitar Chrome Boy, Mint w/ Case, JS3CR


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2023 Ibanez JS-3 Joe Satriani signature model in like-new condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original molded hardshell case, case candy, and factory documentation. This JS series Ibanez was crafted in Japan at the Fujigen factory, produced in limited quantities to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Satriani’s first Ibanez signature.

With its mirrored “Chrome Boy” finish, the tonewood complement comprises a basswood body, maple neck, and 22-fret slab rosewood fretboard. The DiMarzio humbuckers include a Satchur8 at the bridge and a PAF Pro in the neck position: the Satchur8 is a Satriani signature humbucker, featuring Alnico 8 construction with ample output, designed for maximum responsiveness and dynamic expression at all volume levels. This pickup has loads of harmonics and definition, buttery mids, deep full-bodied bass, and a sonorous quality to the trebles perfect for distorted sounds. The PAF Pro in the neck position is one of DiMarzio’s classic humbuckers, designed to deliver the open, articulate sound of a PAF with more presence and cut to ensure no muddiness when played through effects. It has an ideal blend of snap and chunk, with a spike in the midrange that provides a subtle “aw” vowel sound, described by DiMarzio as “like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle.” Additionally, the push/pull coil split enables a great deal of tonal sculpting capability, and the push/pull high-pass filter maintains the upper frequency edge when backing the volume off. This JS-3 weighs 7lbs 4oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, slinky action, and spot-on intonation.
