You'll love this if you're.. looking for a truly modern guitar and you love to shred! Anyone wanting a true Satriani guitar but cant afford the price of his top of the range model will love this more affordable design, that perfectly balances premium features with a great price, giving you fantastic value for money.
Pure Joe Satriani Feel
The iconic Joe Satriani curved body is cut from an American basswood body and finished with a gorgeous Candy Apple Red finish which simply pops out and immediately draws the eye. The whole body is curved with no strong edges, resulting in a supremely comfortable feel.
This iconic body is pared with JS's own 3piece neck design, combining classic maple with a stripe of bubinga, that not only looks cool but adds sustain and a stronger overall tone. Whats more, it combines with the in-built KTS titanium rods to make the neck superstrong and highly resistant to warping. It will fare much better when you take it on plane flights or accidentally leave it in the car in the winter.
The Fretboard itself is made to Joe's specifications. A rosewood board with 24 medium frets and premium fret edge treatment offer a lightning fast and comfortable feel.
Rich Joe Satriani Tone
The guitars construction gives it its base tone, but the pickups offer the bulk of the guts. The JS24P is loaded with Joe's choice of high quality Signature DiMarzio pickups that he's tweaked to create that Satriani tone.
Sitting at the bridge, Joe's put his Dimarzio Mo' Joe Humbucker pickup that's powerful and gives a beefy but ever so smooth tone. This is pared with the Chopper; A Dual Blade humbucker that has great clarity when you're playing through a clean channel, but powerful and punchy when you turn the gain up.
These two dimarzio humbuckers are a great duo by themselves, but to really get the true Satriani tone, you're going to want his electronics. Of course, the JS24P has these electronics; Combining a coil tap on the tone control with an unusual Hi-pass filter on the volume control, gives you a heck of a lot of tonal variety and of course that smooth distinctive tone of Joe himself.
