The JCS1601 is an S series solid body electric guitar model offered by Ibanez in 2016. It was made in Japan by Sugi as part of the high-end J Custom line.
The JCS1601 features an African mahogany body capped with an 18mm thick arched exotic maple top mated to a set-in satin finished mahogany and bubinga Wizard neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with exotic maple binding and Tree of Life inlays. Components include dual DiMarzio Fusion humbucking pickups, an Edge Zero double locking tremolo bridge with a removable tuning stabilizer system, a locking nut, Gotoh Free Lock II strap pins and Gotoh tuning machines. Controls consist of a master volume, a 3-way pickup selector lever and a mini-toggle switch to coil-tap the pickups.
The headstock has a 1.5mm thick exotic maple top with natural binding which is finished to match the body. The serial number is stamped both on the back of the headstock and on the fretboard past the 24th fret.
