35% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

From his early work with Medeski Martin & Wood to his extensive solo career, John Scofield has played a leading role in the development of modern jazz guitar. This Ibanez JSM10 lets you play with Scofield's same tone while tapping into his aesthetic style. From the gold tuning pegs down to the Quik Change III tailpiece, the JSM10 is every bit as dashing as it is playable. A pair of Super 58 humbuckers deliver characteristic PAF tone, while Scofield's preferred electronics give you the humbucker warmth and single-coil clarity you need. Top the whole thing off with an Artstar treated, bound ebony fretboard on a super-comfortable mahogany and maple neck, and you've got one solid jazz box. 

Ibanez John Scofield Signature JSM10 Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Configured for precision, speed, and incredible stability
  • Classic humbuckers meet sophisticated tone options
  • Jaw-dropping appointments make this jazz box a real looker

Configured for precision, speed, and incredible stability

One of the things that had us dragging each other to the Music Experience showroom to marvel over the original Ibanez John Scofield model was its phenomenal stability, and we're absolutely delighted that the JSM10 follows suit perfectly. Between its set 3-piece mahogany and maple neck and reliable Quik Change III tailpiece, the JSM10 provides you with absolutely rock-solid performance. What's more, the smooth Artstar fret-edge treatment and bound ebony fretboard make this one of the most comfortable guitars you're likely to get your hands on.

Classic humbuckers meet sophisticated tone options

The Super 58 humbuckers in the JSM10 are the same type of pickups found in John Scofield's own guitar, wired up the same way to give you a ton of tonal options. With just the 3-position toggle alone, these classic PAF-style humbuckers provide you with a beautiful range of warmth and clear projection. But there's a second 3-way toggle onboard the JSM10, which lets you switch the neck pickup from series to parallel, with a stop in the middle for single-coil tone. The tonal possibilities are absolutely astonishing!

Jaw-dropping appointments make this jazz box a real looker

Some guitars are just born classy, and the semi-hollowbody JSM10 is certainly among this class of instruments. For starters, take a look at the flamed maple top and side - that figuring is no joke. But the beauty of the JSM10 extends down to the smallest details, like the gold tuning pegs and other hardware, or the binding on the top, back, and fretboard, which extends to the headstock and the F holes. And you can't help but admire the Mother-of-Pearl and abalone block inlays, which seem to leap off the fretboard and capture every stray beam of light.

What Ibanez Says...

John Scofield's guitar work has influenced jazz since the late 70’s and is going strong today. Possessor of a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R & B.
Born in Ohio and raised in suburban Connecticut, Scofield took up the guitar at age 11, inspired by both rock and blues players. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. After a debut recording with Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker, Scofield was a member of the Billy Cobham-George Duke band for two years. In 1977 he recorded with Charles Mingus, and joined the Gary Burton quartet. He began his international career as a bandleader and recording artist in 1978. From 1982?1985, Scofield toured and recorded with Miles Davis. His Davis stint placed him firmly in the foreground of jazz consciousness as a player and composer.
Since that time he has prominently led his own groups in the international Jazz scene, recorded over 30 albums as a leader (many already classics) including collaborations with contemporary favorites like Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Eddie Harris, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Bill Frisell, Brad Mehldau, Mavis Staples, Government Mule, Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano and Phil Lesh. He’s played and recorded with Tony Williams, Jim Hall, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Dave Holland, Terumasa Hino among many jazz legends. Throughout his career Scofield has punctuated his traditional jazz offerings with funk-oriented electric music. All along, the guitarist has kept an open musical mind.
Touring the world approximately 200 days per year with his own groups, he is an Adjunct Professor of Music at New York University, a husband, and father of two. 
"I loved the way the neck felt on my 1981 AS200, and that was the guitar I always returned to. You find what you're comfortable with and you stay with it. This became the basis for the JSM John Scofield Model introduced in 2001, which reproduced the original AS200 guitar, with added improvements." - John Schofield
