2002 will see the debut of a new Ibanez Joe Satriani Signature Model guitar. With the modern, comfortable curves of Satrianis aerofoil shaped guitar accentuated by the new Champagne Gold finish, the guitar promises to be a show stopper. But the guitar features more than good looks. It has something that guitarists have wanted Ibanez to make for a long time: a fixed bridge with the tuning stability of the Ibanez Edge locking tremolo system. The FXEdge is a fine piece of design, commented Bill Reim, Hoshinos Marking and Advertising VP. Youve got all the tuning technology of the Edge combined with full tone and sustain of a fixed bridge. And its on the Joe Satriani model, which is an example in its own right of a great design yielding superior playability and sound. The two together are simply an unbeatable combination.
The Joe Satriani JS2000 features a body of basswood and an Ibanez Prestige neck thats an exact digital rendering of the neck on Joe Satrianis favorite guitar.
