    The handle is between a Start '(rather round but not too much) and a ibz handle (rather fine)
    I have 8 years now and I am still not myself, it's not perfect for acadmique position and the passage of the thumb above is not very pleasant I think. That said, this is just opinion, the feeling depends only on your tastes and habits, I'm just saying it suits me handle moderately.
    However, this is a very good quality handle the medium frets are not the most comfortable (I prefer jumbo) but provide a nice slamming for clean sounds.

    Shame that the guitar tends drag thigh and cut off circulation because of the very rounded shape
    Good point: the jack is well located and there is no risk of hanging.
    Sounds: you get what you want this guitar, super versatile for clean sounds as distortion. This is the model of the master!

    SONORITS

    I use it with my boss MT2, a Marshall JCM 2000 and some reverb, it's great prcis and singing. The pickups sound great, no need to change them, even if some will be difficult ....
    The sounds are the strong point of this guitar: they are always very friendly and prcis in clear sounds, the split really allows sound like a Strat 'and double superbly saturate the sound of the bass is round and smooth, treble sounds great, harmonic whistle, short, questioning his, not complaints.
    Point ngatif, floyd (but my date model 98) TRS 2 takes the agreement, but the mediocre steel bridges hanging ropes and breaks (no need to try Dive bombs fa we Vai) and the rod in his cheek cavity shame but rgl properly, there is a way to have fun, especially combined with a whammy and wah simultaneously ....

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I depui 8 years already bought Cygnus 550 euros. Even if the handle does not really flat myself 100% (but the handle of the js 1000 is different and really better, I saw at the store) sound, comfort and look of this Guitar mean that I do not sell. I would prfr have it in black but red tranlucide is not bad, (shame we then see 5 pieces that make up the body). May be I will ask later an original floyd above. For a dj js 100 is really great so I guess the js 1000 ....

    SOUNDS

    This guitar is quite suitable to my style for its sounds are many ... we go from mellow clean, crystalline, jazzy, crunch the power distortion due to the variety of choice of combining two doubles.
    I have a Peavey VK-112 and I preferred the warm clean sounds good and greasy but accurate lead ... I do not like dry and chirps ...

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I used this guitar for two months but I am fast "freed" because of his Floyd is really bad, the guitar goes out of tune without stopping as soon as one takes it, even without being a brute! I do not like it either, which is far from being comfortable handle ... too high Action cisaillait my fingers, yet she came out of the luthier, I wanted to lower the height of the strings, but even barely, barely , it bordered everywhere, disgusting!
    I find that this model is VERY, VERY expensive for what it offers.
    I will certainly not go that choice, or we must Ibanez not review many things on this guitar!

Beautiful face, beautiful line, good violin, there's joe satriani written on the 22th box, good enough it almost there.

I admit that floyd and I it has never gone well together because I have never been kind to the pulling of strings (52-12 min) or even in my game bears. But it is thanks or because of this guitar that I really made the instrument.

    I kept the original di-marzio I found sympatic, I still would prefer humbuckers to single coils. The handle is a treat, similar to the best fenders I've tested but thinner and therefore more conducive to the furious riffs and solos pests.

    UTILIZATION

    16 years and I've never really had to adjust. A small miracle. Except the damn vibrato which ended blocked thanks to a perverse but thorough DIY (random nuts glued to stop), nothing has ever moved and I pampered. Obviously, a tel.modèle, even if more in the range of Js signing mériyait my attention. It takes good agreement, it is a joy to change strings without having to cut, push pull switch for the humbucker to single coil is a curious but brilliant idea, and the shape is just perfect for all styles music, from the blues to the more cavernous metal.

    SOUNDS

    When le.vibrato not beat the wing, I could grind on without end tune, and it was very nice to huuuuurler harmonics to the whammy bar. Level original pickups, which it will. I have read many times that we could have a hundred times better but I still managed to be amazed and pleased with the sound. The guitar is absolutely fabulous outfit and comfort level of play, ca feels a death in the sound, which in addition is EXTREMELY warm and round. I always wanted to put seymour duncan really more pêchus and responded better to attack especially on the neck pickup but in the end I leave blank. In 16 years the mechanical did not move, only floyd resented, but I'm not his punches (pantera good time) ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have only one advice to give thee a fan of joe Satchurator in the soul. Price or is found OCCAZ, compared to a whole lot of modern instruments is on, it is not the best value for money. The vibrato can be a problem for someone who has no time to lose with ca. But frankly, in 450 euros OCCAZ, we find pure state while the big sisters are neeeettement more dear because rarer too.

    It is still my guitar Favorite, even if the mouth, I've always loved the "guitar batman", the bc rich widow with head or dean of dimebag darrell.

    This Ibanez is for me one of the best guitars, both for its musical qualities as for its aesthetic perfection.

    I bought this guitar at sounds great second hand (ony by a week) for £429. I bought it because I need a guitar with a locking trem. I actually went into the shop to buy a jackson, but this was £300 cheaper and I just bought there and then.

    This guitar is a one amazing piece of kit , If God owned a guitar it have to be one of these(Just had a mental image then, of some guy with a white beard rocking out on stage dressed like a member of judas priest). Anyway even though it's not the top of the range JS it still, out of ALLof them plays the best.

    This guitar is a one amazing piece of kit , If God owned a guitar it have to be one of these(Just had a mental image then, of some guy with a white beard rocking out on stage dressed like a member of judas priest). Anyway even though it's not the top of the range JS it still, out of ALLof them plays the best. The tonal range from the guitar is superb, I have changed the pickups to dimazzio rather than the ibanez standard ones, but thats only because I need branding on everything (It makes me feel big). The neck fits my hand perfectly but it may not suit everyone. The trem as most people know isn't a floyd rose, It's a edge pro 2. I works slightly differently and has more sleek design, and the sounds are great. It dive bombs like Tony Blaire's political career.

    The only thing I can think thats wrong with it, is that it's got somone elses name on it at the 21st fret. Whos joe satriarni anyway?(joke).

    The body is bass wood giving a mixture of mahogany and alder type tones. The wood is well cut and flawlessly finished. Mine is pure white and theres not a blemish. The electrics are all you would ever need.2 humbuckers with a 3 way selector 1 volume and 1 tone pot, which also is a coil tap for those sinlge coil moments. All the contols are solid and well made, pure quality. The neck joint is perfect as are the frets and inlays. The trem holds tune even after heavey abuse. the guitar was already set up when I got and there action is bang on. The very japanese headstock is again briilently finished with no l mistakes like paint run or anything like that.

    You need to buy one of these NOW! put it though a mashall stack and it shakes the walls off. The qualiy and value of this guitar is second to none. GO AND GET ONE.

    I bought my JS 100BK USED from a local music store, $650.00 Canadian.

    Nice finish, Good Shape. Neck was decent enough.

    Original set up was awful!! P/U's were pretty bad too. I don't know how they could put this guitar on the sales floor set-up & sounding like it was. Brutal!!

    Pretty typical mass quantity construction. I liked the way the TRS bridge was designed. I knew it could be a real machine with some work.

    I got it set up with 10's(By a professional luthier). The p/u's replaced with same model Dimarzio p/u's in the JS 1000. Custom colored, of course.
    Some saddles were shimmed because they "frapped out" on the upper neck region. Neck was adjusted too.

    I looks pretty smart, tremalo is nicer than the one on the s470, thats about it! Sounds are comparable to my s470, ie. you can get most sounds - lacking the single coil pickup of the s470 though, so it loses some flexability.

And this is a very new guitar - maybe 4 months old or so. I also didn't like the way the headstock is in line with the kneck. On the s470 it bends back to wards the player a bit, which looks really cool! It only had one inlay of joe satriani on the 15th fret or something too, nothing else. A fairly ordinary guitar - worht about 600 pounds here... You cuold get some quality gear for that. (guitar gear. obviously).

    Tone knob crap. Selector switch knackered. Why go for the ever unreyable gibson-esque switch when the fender style one works time and time again? Tremalo seemed a more soli effort than the s470's.

    Dissapointing. Good sound, poor kneck (probably fixable by sorting out the frets), so so construction. You can get some fine guitars for this price. I've read nothing but good things about the ibanez rg series, and the mostly undercut this guitar by a bit. They may not have such a nice shape, but the apparently sound the buisness. Buy one of them! If you have to play like Joe, do it one of ibanez's other guitars.

I'm not a heavy tremolo user, but i still like the floyd rose solution. sure, i takes a little more time to tune in, but it stays tuned.. i went away for 3 months and when i came back it was out of tune for like 2 cents.. and it's fucking gorgeous.. i call her "Inge from sweden" cause she'd......

    the "volume knob" pretty much defines how much effect will be put on the signal that comes out from the guitar.. sometimes i wish, turn it down, it would just be quieter, but instead it loses all the distortion.. of course, it sometimes comes handy. and i don't eve know if it's the same thing with all other guitars because i never dug into it when i played one

    well crafted, quality parts, i'm just not sure what's the deal with JS1000 (it's more expensive) but i'm satisfied with the stuff they'd put on her. i had to straighten the neck a little bit once so far and i had to change the magnet switch because it didn't stay put when you switched it and shes's abour 5 years old, so i think it's a good deal

    she pretty much stays my main guitar for some time

    I bought this guitar second-hand from a guy who bought it second hand from a guitar store, so i've got no idea how old she actually is, my guess is about 5 years or so. I paid $700 australian for it, and considering this thing retails at 1900, i couldn't go past it. It wasn't in the best of condition when i bought it, the body and neck were in top condition though, it was just a bit neglected.

    It has great tone and it's real nice to play. This was not the case when i first purchased it, but that tone was still there.

    It has great tone and it's real nice to play. This was not the case when i first purchased it, but that tone was still there. After making a couple of mods to it it's now a powerful and proffesional sounding axe, a really quality instrument. For a start, i blocked of the tremlo with a piece of rosewood, which has given it sooo much more tone, i also put new pickups in it, they're korean made, and everybit the dimarzio classic, at about a quarter of the price. After a fret dress, heavier gauge strings (11-52's) and set-up it is now sounding awesome, with wonderful clean and distorted tones, as well as playing beautifuly, it's one of the fastest necks i've played in a long time.

    Dislikes... well, it's not a PRS, that's about the only thing it's got going against it!!! Without the bridge blocked off it sounded the guitar sounded as if it was holding back (too much metal, not enough timber), but that was an easy fix. It's fine to tune, especially now the bridge is locked, but even with the trem open it's still ok. The pickups sucked, but still were able to make the guitar sound good, just not great

    Quality is good, especially for a Jap made guitar. The wiring was good, the finish is brilliant, very durable and most importantly attractive. Nice looking woodgrain too.

    This is a great guitar. As long as you know what you are doing, you can really get this baby to play like a guitar worth twice what this one is. I'm putting it through a GT6 into a marshall solid state, and the tone and variety i get is astounding. It's my one and only electric guitar, it's just a good workhorse guitar

    I've always been a fan of Satch, and I outgrew my other guitars...so I wanted a guitar that played great, sounded great, and looked great. Plus, since my band occasionally uses alternate tunings, I needed a 3rd axe to switch to quickly live. This guitar became my main axe for standard tuning. I gladly paid $670 at a Guitar Center for this slick machine!

    I really liked the size, weight, and overall playability. It was a first for me with a Floyd Rose...and I had to adjust a little in setup..but it's accurate and repeatable.

It has a great overall universal tone but I absolutely love the 2 humbucker configuration with the split tone control! You can go from a straight forward bridge pickup grind to a rich, full neck pickup tone....all with good sustain. Great overall tone response....and it doesn't hurt that the transparent red paint is absolutely gorgeous!

    There's not much not to like...but I couldn't quite adjust the action low enough for my liking. However, the neck is unique and it depends on what you do.

    Accurate and clean. No worries or hastles.

    I would recommend this guitar to those who want a comfortable, playable, good sounding guitar and want to spend under $700.
