From Our Research Team:
Yes, Now You Can Own Joe Satriani's Guitar!It took many years to create guitars that could satisfy Joe Satriani, the "Master of Tone." But the end result was worth it. Joe's signature guitars aren't just a tribute to the man who has kept the torch burning for instrumental rock, they're the perfect vehicle for any artist who can put as much intensity into a whole note as he or she does with light speed phrases.
Ibanez JS1200 at a Glance:
The Perfect Guitar To Take "Surfing With The Alien"
Anyone who has heard Joe Satriani's original 1987 release, "Surfing With The Alien," has heard the man wail on Ibanez guitars. Today, with his own signature edition instruments, all built to his exacting specifications - and with a little secret mojo mixed in for good measure - Joe is bringing down the house at concerts around the world (or melting down your CD player with his ninth studio album, "Is There Love In Space?"). For the JS1200, Joe selected lightweight basswood for the aerofoil-shaped body because of its comfort factor and excellent balance between highs and lows. The Candy Apple red finish is a real scorcher, but guaranteed not to burst into flame no matter how hot your licks are!
Multi-radius Prestige Maple Neck and Rosewood Fingerboard
There's no reason to mess with a formula that's been time tested for half a century, so the JS1200 features a multi-radius Prestige maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard that's an exact digital rendering of the actual neck on Joe's favorite axe. And thanks to the deep cutaways on the JS1200's body, you get superb access to the upper frets for your most demanding solo work. Adding a touch of class are abalone dot inlays. Hey, if it's good enough for Joe...
DiMarzio Pickups Deliver Tone For Days
What good is a sleek, sexy guitar if it doesn't have the tone to match. Thanks to the specially-designed DiMarzio pickups (a PAF Joe in the neck position and a Fred in the bridge position - hey, we didn't name these things), you can go from crystal clear to downright filthy just by adjusting your tone and volume knobs, because an exclusive highpass filter maintains a full tonal spectrum at all volume levels from a whisper to a full out, ear damaging roar!

by Jerry from Austin TexasThis guitar is a real work of art. The technical aspect of the guitar is exceptional. The neck is absolutely perfect in my opinion. The two humbuckers give great sound with good range of variations. ... read more [+]The controls are ideal for the guitar’s intended purpose.

Music Background: Guitar hobbyist.
The floating bridge takes time to tune but then it stays in tune. The vibrato or tremolo range is as good as it gets with the bridge floating on a knife edge beam.
The tremolo hits against the high frequency/volume control when the knob is pulled into its upper position. This may be intended and allows the vibrato arm to rest in a fixed location.
This guitar, as any, should spend a few dollars with a good guitar adjustment professional to bring the nut, neck and bridge into perfect adjustment. I adjusted mine to perfection and it is the easiest guitar I have ever played in my life. I am a perfectionist and can tear any guitar apart in a review but this is the best guitar I have ever played. Your only consideration should be if this guitar is in the class of guitars you are interested in. If you want a hollow body or a classical guitar then it might not serve as the only guitar you have. However, I use the guitar for a wide variety of music. I like it for Chet Atkins finger picking style. The most difficult thing I had to learn was to put less pressure on the neck because of the ease of playing.
I would suggest you buy a popular Joe Satriani CD and listen to what this guitar can do. Your limitations as a guitar player will never be because of this guitar. close [-]
