The John Scofield Signature Series from Ibanez is a hollow-body electric guitar made with a flamed maple top, back, and sides, a JSM 3-piece mahogany/maple neck, and a vintage yellow sunburst gloss finish. The double-cutaway hollow-body delivers a rich tone well suited for jazz solo and ensemble playing, while the JSM neck has an Artstar fret edge treatment, which provides a comfortable action with precision and speed. The Super 58 humbucker pickups offer a warm, balanced articulation, while a dedicated Tri-Sound switch taps the coil of the neck pickup to provide a single coil tone, or changes the pickup to a parallel configuration. Other features include a bound ebony fingerboard with acrylic and abalone block inlay, and dedicated volume and tone controls for the bridge and neck pickups.
The Tri-sound switch gives a humbucker pickup three different sounds, expanding the versatility of your guitar.
Gibraltar Artist bridge
The Gibraltar Artist bridge, made of a light weight Aluminum bridge frame and Zinc saddles, provides natural tone, rich sustain and tuning stability. The low positioned saddles promise comfortable playability.
Ebony Fretboard w/ Artstar Fret Edge Treatment
Ebony produces a tight low end and mid-range with a defined high end attack. It also delivers quick response and rich sustain.
Super 58 pickups
The Super 58 pickups deliver smooth, nuanced tones along with a crisp, biting growl.
The Bone nut provides richer tone from low to high.
Quik Change III Tailpiece
The Quik Change III tailpiece enables faster and easier string changing.

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 to manufacturer factory specifications. Any request made outside of manufacturer factory specifications can incur additional charges for parts and labor. 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.
