I'm actually not a huge Satch fan, but was given this guitar as a gift and decided to try it out as I normally like just about everything Ibanez puts out. The body shape is interesting. Kind of reminds me of a Strat meets RG body, which is fine. Neck feels like a normal Wizard. There are minor variations between the numerous Wizard models out there. I think this one has a dynamic radius so it feels more Fendery for chording. It feels comfortable to me. Apparently some of these come with Edge Pro's and other come with the edge lo-pro. Mine came with the lopro which is too bad because I like the regular pro a bit better. It's a feel thing and for my money the lopro is still every bit as good a trem. Stays in turn great. The finish is very cool. Kind of jumps out at you in certain lighting. I'm not sure if these are Japan made but I don't think they are. The price kind of reflects that too. Playability is great though and this is a well crafted guitar.


I've been really feeling this guitar through my VHT Deliverance. Seems to like that amp a lot. I'm pretty familiar to Dimarzio pickups so the Fred and PAF pro are not new to me. I really the like the Fred in the bridge. Definitely sounds unique and isn't for the faint of heart PAF guys. I have never been a Big fan of the PAF Pro but it sounds good in this guitar. Kind of lower output than I would like but it's passable. The JS1000 is geared sound wise for Satch music and not too much else. You can do the hair metal thing and hard rock stuff with it but it won't really do laid back rock as well. It's not a jazzy relaxed tone.


I really like the simplicity and playability, which is something I didn't really expect from Joe Satch artist guitar. It's a really well made axe too despite the fact that I don't think it's a Prestige model. If you want that lead tone he gets this is ticket. The price is appropriate considering the hardware onboard.
