Ibanez introduced a second Jet King guitar model at the 2004 NAMM show. "Like the first Jet King, the Jet King II offers retro looks that hearken back to the funky-looking guitars Ibanez offered in the '60s," commented Bill Reim, president of Ibanez USA, "but with today's playability, tonal versatility and stability. However, instead of the thinner neck and the basswood body of the 1st Jet King, the Jet King II features a mahogany body and a thicker neck for even more tone and sustain. Plus it's got even more funky-looking pickguards."

Originally called the "Pawnshop Project," the Jet King concept was to combine the funky looks that were associated with the old '60s found hanging is pawnshops, with the versatility, playability and good intonation that the old guitars were not associated with.

Both Jet King models feature old-style rocker tone switches that are actually modern coil-taps for instant switching between classic single coil and humbucking tones. String-thru-body construction provides greater sustain, and tighter tension.

The original 2003 JTK1 Jet King features a basswood body and thinner neck for light weight and easy playability. The new 2004 JTK2 King II features a larger mahogany body with a thicker neck for more warmth and sustain. The list price for both models is $399.99
