    Ibanez JS vs Signature?

    I see Ibanez JS series guitars listed on the net simply with the model designation, and then occasionally, I see them listed as "JS Signature" models... Are they all "Signature" models, or is the Signature an upgraded model?
    What I want most from my government is to be left alone.

    signatures, since even the lower end (js100) have the joe satriani inlay.

    All Ibanez JS guitars are Joe Satriani's signature.
    The lower end (and price) ones were made in Korea and nowadays (since 2008) in Indonesia. The higher end (and price) ones have always been made in Japan and are equivalent (and crafted by the same standards of) the prestige line (they even come with a team j. craft - prestige hardcase).

    Though, the one caveat - the JS body shape is a very slightly tweaked version of the Ibanez Radius body, which predated it (and was discontinued with the introduction of the JS). Occasionally they pop up with the same specs - H-H and an edge. That would make it look an awful lot like a JS, but technically be neither or JS nor a signature model.

    Other than that, yeah, the JS is Joe Satriani's signature model, regardless of how someone describes it on ebay.
