In 2010, Joe Satriani released the first acoustic JS series, the JSA5 and the JSA10. At this moment, both had the BK Black finish but four years later the JSA5 took its VB Vintage Burst finish of the JSA20. The neck has been designed to feel like an electric guitar and that’s a very important feature for Joe, so he can easily change between his electric and acoustic guitars when he’s on stage.
“ I’ve been playing the JSA acoustic onstage and it feels great, plays great and sounds wonderful. And, in all black, it looks so cool! It has outstanding projection, and an impressive dynamic range too, with a powerful clear tone essential for live performance. The JSA acoustic has a full and balanced sound that’s perfect for strumming, soloing, or, delicate finger picking. It has good access to the upper frets, and the electronics make anything you play sound clear and natural. ”
The JSA5 features the Fishman Presys pickup system you’ll have amazing dynamic plugged-in tone, plus exceptional tone shaping too. There are bass, mid, and treble tone controls so you can dial in your ideal sound. There’s also a built-in tuner on the JSA5‘s Fishman Presys pickup system to make sure you’re always ready to play your best. The Solid Engelmann spruce top provides exceptional balance and projection, and will sound even better with age, the body features a cutaway for an easy access to higher frets.
This is a used guitar in excellent condition showing only minor signs of use, the worst being one ding in the finish on the neck. Just set up, it plays great!
