The Ibanez JS1000 is a JS series electric guitar model and signature model of American guitarist Joe Satriani, introduced in 1994. It is a continuation of the original JS1 model and it is the longest running model of the JS series. Features include a basswood body, DiMarzio pickups and a double locking tremolo. Like all JS models, the body shape is based on the Ibanez Radius.
From the beginning on, there are two finishes available: Black Pearl (BP) and Burnt Transparent Blue (BTB, also known as Transparent Blue in the US). Initially both finishes were released in all areas. Later on the BP became an USA exclusive finish for the JS1000 and the BTB an Europe / Japan exclusive. Outside the US another BP colored JS was issued: the JS900. In 1997, the JS1000 didn't appear in the US catalog. In 1998 the White finish was added to the lineup in all areas. With the introduction of the Edge Pro in 2003, this finish disappeared again. From 2008 and on, the BTB was phased out. As of 2010, the JS1000 is only available in BP.
Another change for 2010 is the tremolo: the Edge Pro is replaced with the original Edge. The Edge was introduced in 1986 and has been used for various JS models, but it is the first time it is featured on the JS1000.
