    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is great. It plays better and faster then most guitars in its class, and it is all around a great, well built instrument.

    It does have slight fret buzz, but im sure it can be fixed easily. It also has some trouble cutting through the noise made by other instruments, as its pickups aren't as harsh or high output as others, but it's not too much of a problem.

    Overall, this is an amazing guitar, and probably the best guitar I've ever played.

    Basswood = Tone and Basswood = dents

    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    I have the 2002 js1000 and id say ive tried my best not to hurt it but it seems tone comes at a price and this thing gets dinged up even if i just poke it! but hey, as long as it sounds good im happy with it. I dont seem the point in the neck contour when everytime i get up there it hit the metal neck cover and it hurts like heck. other than that i really enjoy this instrument. ohh and dont clean yourr hardware cause every ibanez i own the metal fades so badly on it.

    The Best There Is

    By Bill Majoros (google me!)

    from Research Triangle (NC)

    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    I own two of these -- a 5-year-old white and a 2-week old black pearl. And I plan to buy more of them. I also own many Jacksons and several other Ibanezes. I recently returned from a 5-year hiatus from the guitar and decided to re-evaluate all my guitars to see which one I'd want to use for a new album. After extensive comparisons I found that the JS1000's had the best playability, the best sound, and the best construction. Note that you do need to have these professionally set up if you want maximum performance for shredding. I had my new black pearl set up by Rich at IbanezRules and now the action is so low it's unmatched. I then re-setup my white one myself by shimming the nut and the neck and how it's also amazing. But I've recorded four albums with the stock white JS1000, so even without a pro setup it's an amazing guitar. Shred, blues, metal, it can do them all. But most importantly: once you've spent some quality time with a JS1000 you'll find that there's something special (if elusive) about the neck. My other Ibanezes have more frets and comparable action, but when I pick up my JS1000 my fingers just always seem more at home, anywhere on the neck.

    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    until recently I didn't know that the Js 1000 came in a white finish which looks awsome! This guitar is easy to play EVH solos with not much distortion on. It would be nice to have a third tone nob and a virtually noiseless pickup switch for and easy transition but other than that this is my favorite guitar out of the many I own.... even better than a Gibson. sorry Gibson fans. The tone is bright and clear and goes great with any amp you have.

    The best

    By HeavyMetal333

    from Seattle

    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    I go to guitar center for hours every week just to play this js1000. It has the best pickups for the kind of music I play. Even though the price may seem high, it is 100 percent worth it. It is very light so it doesnt hold you down and mess you up, and if you play sitting down, it fits perfectly on your lap.If you don't have this guitar yet, then you should at least try it out.

    SatchSquash

    By Guitaro Montalban

    from Jacksonville, Fl

    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    For this to be about the best playing guitar I have EVER picked up, the pick ups are HORRIBLE! Total squashed sounding single coil thing! After getting used to my 1550 Ibanez/Dimarzio PU's it makes this sound like a Washburn or some Wal Mart crap. AND I don't even play the nu metal/noise rock junk like you guys do! I play 70's and 80's, rock and fusion/shred the heaviest we play might be AC/DC or Poison and altho this guitar plays AWESOME it sounds like a toy. I run it thru a satcherator and whereas the 1550 does just fine on a half gain setting, I have to hit the more button to match it with this. I just got it so I am going to throw an evolution or the IB/DM in it and see whats up. Great guitar though, I can shred for days.

    Favorite Guitar

    By R. Lee

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar because my band is doing several satch tunes and I needed the right axe for the job. This is now my favorite electric I own. My LP Classic and Strat are both excellent guitars but this is the one I wind up playing the most. It's a very light and comfortable guitar, sounds killer and plays great. Had it about a year now and am very happy with it.

    why buy a more expensive axe?

    By Kdawg007

    from Minneapolis

    Comments about Ibanez JS1000 Electric Guitar:

    I've owned the JS1000 for 3 years now and over the course of 3 years I always find myself looking at much more expensive guitars, mainly because I can afford them. But everytime I get to seriously thinking about spending the big bucks, I ask myself, "Is it going to be any better than the JS?". The answer is always "no". I really don't think you can get a better playing, sounding guitar for twice the price. You might get an axe that equals this for twice the price, but not a better one IMO. For as light as this guitar is, it has tremendous sustain. I just love playing this thing. If you are looking at guitars just slightly below this price range, do yourself a favor: wait a little longer and save a few extra and buy this axe - you will NOT be disappointed.
