What can be said about the incredible Joe Satriani that hasn’t already been said before? One of the brightest stars of instrumental guitar-driven music, Joe has been at the forefront of the genre for over 30 years, blazing a trail for all, in a way that only Joe can. Joe’s prowess as a songwriter, instrumentalist, and visionary is unparalleled, helping him sell over 10 million records worldwide as the biggest selling instrumental rock guitarist of all time.
Recently, Joe has been equipping his signature Ibanez JS guitars with a Sustainiac unit, to help him transform his instrument into screamin’ monster capable of unlimited sustain at the flip of a switch. Ibanez has begun offering JS models with Sustainiac units preinstalled ever since the release of the JS2480 in 2017, and now we are proud offer the JS240PSCA, the most affordable Sustainiac-equipped JS model.

Here at Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12 point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
