Built for Shredding!It took many years to make 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.

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 made to his accurate specs - 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 genuine 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 fretboard 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 tweakiest 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 high pass filter maintains a full tonal spectrum at all volume levels from a whisper to a full out, ear damaging roar!
