Ibanez JS2PRM – Rare Ibanez Joe Satriani Chromeboy Guitars

In 2005, the JS2PRM was Ibanez’s third attempt to recreate the chrome guitar. Ibanez’s first two attempts, the JS2 and the JS10th, both were unsuccessful due to finish problems. The process of bonding a chrome finish onto a wood bodied guitar is an extremely difficult process. The JS10th (2nd attempt) a luthite body was used, which is similar to plastic, and the results were better than the original JS2 Chromeboys, however, they were still beset by water marks and peeling and sounded nowhere near as good as the basswood body.

Ibanez SR Series Guitar – Bass on a Budget

I found a four string, sort of copper-orange SR 300 bass on the wall, that I guess because of it’s color, kinda called to me. My first pleasant surprise was how light this bass was. It’s body is made from Agathis, which is some Pacific Rim relative to mahogany. The neck is a maple/mahogany/maple/mahogany/maple sandwich with a rosewood fretboard that feels MUCH more expensive than $299.00. […]
