The Ibanez Joe Satriani JS1200 guitar is has a multi-radius Prestige neck that is an exact digital rendering of the neck on Joe's favorite axe.
Its lightweight aerofoil shaped basswood body provides comfort, upper-fret access and expressive singing tones. A unique high-pass filter on the volume pots maintains highs at low volumes. The combination of a 25.5-inch neck scale and DiMarzio (PAF Joe and Fred) pickups provides wide dynamic range and versatility.
I wanted a guitar with a modern sound, but with a vintage feel, with smaller frets and more radius on the fingerboard.
It had to be subtle enough to catch nuances, fast and easy to play.
