John Scofield's beloved axe reborn.

The Ibanez JSM100VT John Scofield Signature Electric Guitar builds on the basic excellence of the AS200 guitar John Scofield made famous. The JSM100VT sports a Prestige neck and a side output jack. Like its celebrated predecessor, the Ibanez JSM100 features thick and sweet super 58 pickups and the original 1970s AS/AR headstock design. A compound radius fretboard provides consistent feel and playability in all registers. Ibanez crafts the JSM100VT John Scofield Electric Guitar with flamed maple top, back, and sides.

Features
  • JSM Prestige neck
  • Flamed maple front, back, and sides
  • Medium frets
  • Gibraltar II bridge
  • Super 58 neck pickup
  • Super 58 bridge pickup

It's the sweet jazz crooner of your dreams. Now you don't have to dream anymore. Make it yours.

...what's wrong with people who rate a guitar like this a 1 or 2. I have been playing professionally for almost 30 years and currently play an average 100 jazz and Brazilian gigs a year. I think this is simply a jewel of a guitar. Deep lows, shining highs, wonderful playability. And it's a little thinner that other semi-hollows, making it slightly lighter and more unique. By the way, talking about hearing things which are not there, there are also those who claim they can hear differences between different makes of bulk CDs ("that brand sounds fresher").... Folks, get real and GIVE US ALL A BREAK! The JSM100 is a marvellous guitar.

I bought one of these last Fall. After about a two weeks of playing it a few mintues here and there, changing strings a few times, and other general setup stuff, I discovered the mid-range G notes were dead, would not sustain at all. Not a problem on a run but try to hang on the note for more than a beat and forget it. MF would not take it back after 10 days. Sent in for warranty, they sent a new one. It had the same problem! (different s/n). Sent that one back. The warranty center called me to say all the ones they have do the same thing. MF finally agreed to give my money back. Beware!

    Big Disappointment

    By Tim Ferguson

    from over there

    Comments about Ibanez JSM100VT John Scofield Signature Electric Guitar:

    I was in a guitar store looking for a high end hollow/semi-hollow guitar. I played an Epi Sheraton(decent), an ES-339(amazing), and this guitar. I had seen the guitar online and knew it was a Japanese-made Prestige model, so I was expecting a great guitar. I plugged into a small Fender tube amp and noodled for a litle bit. First of all, the guitar did not play very well, it felt like playing a cheap Artcore. The guitar sounded thin and lifeless and there was very little sustain. The pickups do not have very much output at all, I think a standard PAF type pickup has much more gain. This guitar sounds tinny when clean and nasally when overdriven. Although the guitar is very beautiful, I would not buy it.

    Suprisingly Impressed

    By Lance Man420

    from Las Vegas, NV

    Comments about Ibanez JSM100VT John Scofield Signature Electric Guitar:

    I bought this beauty as a favor from a friend who need some fast cash. What a deal!! After a few adjustments to the neck and a pro set up, this baby plays better than my ES345. THe workmanship on this instrument is amazing. The tone versatility and range is outstanding. I can go from the smoothest jazz tones to some teeth gritting blues crunch and hammerin' metal with no problem. For the real collector; this is a must have.

    Very Warm

    By gnulnx

    from Albany, NY

    Comments about Ibanez JSM100VT John Scofield Signature Electric Guitar:

    It arrived packed nicely in a hardshell case. The guitar was also wrapped in a soft bag inside the case. The guitar was pre-struing and flawless in apperance. I plugged it into my VOX AC15 amp and started jamming. The tone covers a broad range from heavy/warm to light/crisp. The fretboard is phenomenal. It's a tapered neck which gets thinner as you approach the guitar body. This is my first experience with a neck like this and I love it. It's makes chords easier and leads faster. This is wonderful guitar. I doubt anyone returns this guitar during the 45 day return policy. If your looking for a guitar in this style then you owe it to yourself to at least play one. Good luck on your search.

    MAJOR disappointment

    By mrmusic

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Ibanez JSM100VT John Scofield Signature Electric Guitar:

    This guitar was a major disappointment. Sure, it looks pretty... but, the neck is terrible, and the craftsmanship is very questionable. I would be cautious with this guitar... I'm selling mine right away!

    Excellent, excellent instrument! Far outshines a similarly equipped Gibby 335. Absolutely no comparison!
