Introduced in 1992, the Ibanez JS6 was the first hard-tail JS guitar model, featuring the Gotoh GTC101 bridge. The body was made of mahogany and a very interesting feature is that the wood was perceptible with the SOL (Stained Oil) finish.
This guitar had the usual PAF Pro & FRED DiMarzio pickups, maple neck and rosewood fretboard. It is a pretty iconic and rare guitar because only 345 were produced over two years. Then in 1994 the JS6 was replaced by the JS6000. Joe had been using this guitar quite a bit to record The Extremist.
This signature model is produced in Japan.
