You'll See Why Joe Satriani Chooses This Guitar

Plug in with the Ibanez JS2450 Joe Satriani solidbody electric guitar, and you'll instantly know you're holding a precision musical instrument. Even when you're shredding solos the JS2450 is incredibly comfortable to wear and play, thanks to its smooth and curvy design and the special JS neck profile. And you'll be exploring tones for weeks - you get two DiMarzio humbucking pickups, plus push/pull coil tapping and highpass filter. Factor in player-focused features like the Edge tremolo and 6105 frets, and you'll see the Ibanez JS2450 Joe Satriani is in a league of its own.

Ibanez JS2450 Joe Satriani Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Thin, rigid neck and treated frets for maximum playability
  • Dual DiMarzio pickups serve up unexpected tonal versatility
  • Highpass filter enhances highs when you roll your volume down
Thin, rigid neck and treated frets for maximum playability

You'll find that the JS neck profile on the JS2450 gives you a solid fretting foundation while allowing you to play as fast as you like. It's a three-piece maple/bubinga neck too, which is more rigid than one-piece neck and transfers vibration better. And no matter how fast you shred, you won't shred your fingers - the 6105 frets, a favorite of Sweetwater guitar players, on the JS2450 have received Ibanez's Prestige treatment, which smooths down the edges for an amazingly fluid feel.

Dual DiMarzio pickups serve up unexpected tonal versatility

OK, you wouldn't expect anything less than powerful, rich tone from DiMarzio humbuckers. There's a Satch Track humbucker at the neck and a Mo' Joe humbucker at the bridge, chosen for their tonal tenacity and strong output. But the JS2450 also packs a push/pull tone control to coil-tap the bridge pickup. That gives you access to single-coil tones too, greatly expanding the tonal range of the JS2450.

Highpass filter enhances highs when you roll your volume down

If working your volume knob is a big part of your playing style you'll love this - the volume control on the JS2450 houses a push/pull highpass filter. It prevents you from losing your high-frequency edge when you've got your volume rolled back. This lets you keep your definition and edge when you're cleaning up your tone, then easily switch to full-bore tone when you want to send your amp into overdrive territory.

Ibanez JS2450 Joe Satriani Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Joe Satriani Signature guitar, designed for maximum playability and tonal diversity
  • Dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups are Joe Satriani's favorites
  • Push/pull coil-tap and highpass filter greatly expand your sonic options
  • 6105 frets have the Prestige edge treatment, giving them a smoother, rounder feel
  • Made in Japan
  • Hardshell case included

Ibanez JS2450

Stunning...beautiful...plays like a dream. This is like his first signature guitar, only better. And the service from Sweetwater is above and beyond. I will only shop here from now on. Thanks!

Awesome Ibanez

This guitar is a shred machine and more. As you might expect, a Satriani guitar has great playability. The neck profile blends classic and modern shapes. It's not too thin. The extended cutaway allows great access to all of the frets (this is my first 24-fret guitar) and the edge tremolo stays perfectly in tune. I think the pickups make this guitar. The DiMarzio Mo' Joe and Satch Track pickups have great clean and dirty tones, but they are not too hot. I think they sound perfect for classic rock as well as shred and metal. My sales engineer, Jeff Jent, always provides great support. He made sure the guitar was set up as I like it, which involved a change in string gauges and a new setup.

Muscle Car Purple

An absolutly incredible instrument! Too much to list. This guitar is triumphantly amazing. Without even changing amp tones this guitar has so much range in the pickups. On a high gain channel this guitar allows the player to use the coil tap, high pass filter and roll back the volume w/o losing tone or signal to go from distortion to dirty blues all the way to an outstanding sparkling clean and back again w/o hitting a pedal. I have played guitars 3x the cost a d they dont come close to how great the JS2450's tonal capabilities are. The overall build quality of this instrument is outstanding. Unplugged, the body characteristics of the wood choices ring as brilliantly as an acoustic with enormous sustain from the wood itself. I was used to The thin profile Ibanez Wizard necks. I found the neck on the JS2450 to be very smooth, easy, and less tiresome to play across. Seems feel more naturally fitting in the hand especially for barre chords and sweeping where you dont have to completely flatten out your hand like plywood like on thinner necks which has actually improved speed for position changes. This guitar sings out a over other guitars. Truly another Satch designed masterpiece. This is an Ibanez guitar fit for any high end professionl player that is picky with every aspect of a guitars quality. This guitar surpasses all expectation and offers way more than most players would even be able to bring forth from it. Lastly, the trem is spot on for this guitar. I am blown away by this instrument.

Another Great JS Model

See my other review for the same model in the Muscle Car Orange. The only difference with this model is the cosmetics which are striking. Pictures do not do this instrument justice. From a distance, it looks black, get closer up and it looks deep metallic purple. Hit it with any significant light, and the purple pops. The chrome pickups are cool too and are so Joe! As usual the people at Sweetwater are tops, Dave Walent is my go to guy and he treats you real well. This guitar plays very smooth with a very good quality Rosewood fingerboard. I thought the last JS model was his best, but this finish is one of his best yet; a must have for any Joe Satriani fan. The last model was a homerun, this one by Ibanez is a grand slam.
