Ibanez took great pains to re-create Scofield’s original AS200AV, producing a digitized reproduction of its body and neck. When you pick up the JSM100, you’re holding the exact dimensions of this legendary player’s favorite axe. It also includes the master player’s preferred “castle” headstock shape, beautiful pearl/abalone block inlays, and gold hardware.
Sound great while you fight feedback
The JSM100 may be a sight to behold, but it’s not just a pretty face. Ibanez included a thick soundblock and a rigid top to give this guitar a very high resistance to feedback. While most semi-hollows would be howling at higher volumes, the JSM100 keeps you sounding smooth and in control of your tone. To provide the perfect blend of definition and warmth, Ibanez uses a half bone/half brass nut, and the two Super 58 humbucking pickups give you a classic, rich tone.
A jazz/funk/blues luminary
From his beginnings as a collaborator and sideman with Mingus, Miles and Gary Burton, through his solo work and more recent funk-oriented output with Martin, Medeski, Wood, guitarist John Scofield has blazed a fearless trail, moving effortlessly in and out of bop, fusion, rock, funk, blues and soul. Since becoming an Ibanez Signature artist in 2001, Scofield’s trusted JSM100 has been at the ready, waiting for the next musical turn in the road. Says Scofield, “The JSM100 is a perfect hybrid of a solidbody and an archtop. I love my guitar. We’ve grown up together in this business. I do the thinking, but it does the talking. We’re quite a pair.”
