Ibanez developed the JS24P as a more affordable version of their well-known Joe Satriani signature models. With Satriani's signature pickups, a neck that features Ibanez's Premium appointments, and an Edge bridge, this guitar aims to put the pro playing experience into the hands of many new guitarists.
Joe Satriani discusses the features and inspiration behind the JS24P:
Pickups that Scream
To help players nail Joe Satriani's storied guitar tone, Ibanez outfitted the JS24P with the same pickup pair the Satchman uses himself. In the neck position, a DiMarzio The Chopper is the size of a single-coil, but with far higher output and a wider sonic range, thanks to its twin-blade design. In the bridge, a DiMarzio Mo'Joe -- a pickup Satriani designed to be even hotter than his previous FRED humbucker -- brings ringing harmonics. The controls include a hi-pass filter on the volume control and a coil-tap switch on the tone control for a truly expansive tonal palette.
Dressed Up, But Still Comfortable
The JS24P's is a three-piece maple neck with a prominent purpleheart stripe. The purpleheart not only adds distinctive color but stability to the neck, which is further reinforced with KTS titanium rods. The 24 medium frets are given Ibanez's Premium fret edge treatment for a comfortable neck experience. The basswood body is already naturally light and is cut in a thin profile for ease of playing even after logging hours on stage. The guitar's deep cutaway reaches almost to the 24th fret, meaning…
you won't need freakishly long fingers to reach the highest notes.
Dive Bomb Away on an Edge BridgeWhammy-happy players will love that the JS24P features an Edge bridge. The double-locking bridge and nut combination is built to handle deep dives and heavy upward yanks -- so take those screeching harmonics to new heights!
