Ibanez JSM100 Prestige
Made in Japan! This Ibanez is part of the best current productions, both in the choice of species and quality workmanship.
22 medium jumbo frets (Ouch, fingers), delivered with a set of strings 13/52 (Ouch, again, not set (the strings were well 1 cm from the sleeve!
2 Ibanez Super 58 humbuckers, hot fat and wish it all
No split, we can move from one configuration fat, another equally fat ......!
1 volume, 1 tone parmicro, an inverter 3 positions.

Ibanez gold easel, which tend to suffer repeated in sweats ..... But that is adjustable in any position, height, individual (each bridge is adjustable) length.

Mahogany relatively round, similar to that of 335, but very comfortable, with a beautiful polish.


The round, due Aau gauge strings, his coarse adjustment lacked sweetness, and it took bataiiler firm to improve this state.
So I refretter in medium, commissioned a planimetry (150 €), and I found a handle and very nice, finally a guitar easy to play, and sound.
Easy access to acute.
not too heavy at the end of a set, no pain ...

The sound is typed jazz, blues or fusion, rock and roll. always soft, warm, with slight crunch as the amp used ...
Severe acute excellent balance, and whatever the configuration of the microphones, the presence is still strong with mediums may be a bit forward. but not annoying.


Connected to a AER Compact 60, or a Fender Blues Deluxe, all for the better. According to lead attack, we get the dreaded light crunch, which can turn into sweet overdrive for solos. Plue j'intercalke in a Tube Screamer and the palette of sound is sufficient.
The sound is always warm, fat, especially with the neck pickup. Micro horse to obtain saturation of free clean.


I possess 3 years, and now it is perfectly "oiled", I take a lot of fun to play.
Equivalent in feel and sound to 335, with a much lower price.

I had a lot of other guitars, rock and other typed "jazz", 1 / 2 or 1 / 4 body. The Ibanez has a versatility that do not offer the pure jazz guitars.

For cons, I kept my Start, which alone allows the crystalline sounds for casseroles Funk ...

In hindsight, I would take a maointenant Ibanez JSM set correctly but .... Or old, JS 200, which had a split to move the microphones as simple.

Ibanez JSM100 Prestige
Made in Japan (Phew, that's not a "Made in Corea" or "Made in China" but as it describes a "Made in Japan" ... and shows!)
Two pickups Ibanez Super 58.
1 volume and a 1 micro Tone
The handle is round less than a Gibson, but also large and a little more than a pais Strato
The manufacturing quality is obvious
Book in a deluxe holster plus a protective velvet!
Having a possd Artist in the 80's, I find this quality that has made Ibanez (Japan) mark references.


The handle is extremely comfortable but it is better not to have too small hands.
Trs Access in acute right
Trs good ergonomics, the guitar is in balance on the knees
The weight is consquent (type 335 with through-beam)
The sound is remarkable balance over the entire range of the guitar.
The pickups give a lot of serious heat. IDAL is for Jazz.
The micro acute powerful enough with a good DEFINITIONS trs, can work on saturation.


Being in a register Jazz / fusion this guitar suits me perfectly.
I play on an AER Compact 60 + a V-twin mesa boogie prampli.
The sound is warm (semi-hollow humbucker +) is a versatile instrument, but in typical mdium trs beautiful sound with a clear position intermdiaire (But you can not find esprer the foil of a stratocaster)
I love the bold position well micro serious when I play with the thumb and crunchy sound that j'obtient with the microphone and my fever prampli lamp.
The sustain is wonderful.
For the rest it's not a guitar to heavy metal!


I have this guitar for a week and I love dj compltement.
Between her and me for life dsormais! ;)
I hsit a split second with the Gibson ES137 that for a price equivalent does not hold in violin making. Heritage is only able to compete with her in this price range, but in terms of design and sound I prfre widely Ibanez
I think its currently a little "green", can only s'amliorer over time.
The report is qualitprix trs honnte because manufacturing is irrprochable.
I would do without this choice hsiter. I have no regrets. Although sr hurt the wallet, but when you see the price of a 335, it is actually not that CHRE ...
