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

The Ibanez JSM100 signature semi-hollow electric guitar gives you the same feel, features, and sound found in jazz legend John Scofield's prized instrument. Ibanez made a digitized reproduction of Scofield's guitar and applied the exact dimensions to the JSM100. It also features a large internal soundblock and a rigid top and body to help reject feedback. This beautiful instrument includes elegant appointments, great-sounding humbucking pickups, and a side-mounted output jack for more friendly amp cable placement. Play what a master guitarist prefers — the JSM100!

    Looks, feels, and sounds like Scofield's favorite

    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."

    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
