|The pickups are IBZ AH1 (neck) & AH2 (bridge) humbuckers, chosen for their tonal versatility, equally perfect for leads and rhythm.
Other details include a rosewood fretboard, a 1-piece maple neck, an Ibanez Edge-Pro II double locking tremolo system and a coil-tap switch for single coil tones. The Edge III trem offers the similar feel and design to the famous, original Edge trems but with lower profile tuners for greater right-hand comfort.
It took many years to create guitars that could satisfy the Master of Tone - but the results have been worth it. Joe Satriani's signature guitars aren't simply a tribute to the man who has kept the torch burning for instrumental rock, they're the perfect vehicle for an artist who can put as much intensity into a whole note as he does with a light speed phrase.
The JS100's pickups were chosen for the perfect blend of tones. The neck pickup is an Ibanez Axis AH1. It's a very responsive, full-sounding, ceramic-magnet humbucker with medium output. It has lots of character and it's excellent for recording. In the bridge position, you'll find an Axis AH2. This Alnico-5-magnet pickup provides full bass sound with clear harmonics and excellent articulation.
