Limited edition special model celebrating 20 years of collaboration between John Scofield and Ibanez.

The Ibanez John Scofield JSM20TH-BK Black seals 20 years of successful collaboration between famed Japanese luthier and jazz veteran John Scofield. The Japanese-made signature instrument of the exceptional guitarist, who earned his spurs in the jazz scene by playing for greats like Herbie Hancock, Charles Mingus or Miles Davis, relies on characterful semi-hollow sounds, two humbucker pickups wound especially for John and high-quality Gotoh hardware.

IBANEZ John Scofield JSM20TH-BK Black
The strictly limited Ibanez JSM20TH-BK Black celebrates the 20-year collaboration between jazz legend John Scofield and the Japanese company.
IBANEZ John Scofield JSM20TH-BK Black Back
The slim mahogany neck and the semi-resonant body of the JSM20TH are glued together.

Traditionally built Semi Hollow guitar with excellent handling.

The basic construction of the JSM20TH is formed by an all-maple body in a semi-resonant design, which creates a warm and full acoustic character with an arched top and back and additional F-holes. In addition, a solid center block is installed under the bridge, allowing the guitar to handle higher gain settings with ease. The mahogany neck, which is firmly glued to the body, naturally presents the JSM profile tailored to John's needs and grants absolute control over every layer with its usual slim dimensions. As a modernized feature, a compound radius (184 mm to 254 mm) rising from 7.25" to 10" comes into play on the ebony fingerboard, creating ideal conditions for complex Chords and unhindered lead improvisation.

IBANEZ John Scofield JSM20TH-BK Black Body
Ibanez JSM Special humbuckers with classic 3-way switching promise finely articulated jazz and fusion sounds.

JSM Special Pickups

To match the characterful sound on the amp and perfectly complement the acoustic timbre of the body, Ibanez gives the JSM20TH two pickups specially wound for John. The JSM Special Neck Humbucker stands for deep and vocal sounds, while the JSM Special Bridge impresses with a clear and transparent sound and knows how to produce a little more steam when needed. For full control over the tone, the Ibanez JSM20TH also holds a classic 3-way circuit with dedicated volume and tone controls for each humbucker.

IBANEZ John Scofield JSM20TH-BK Black Headstock
Gold-plated Gotoh tuners guarantee accurate tuning with unshakable stability.

Gotoh hardware in gold design

All attachments of the Ibanez JSM20TH-BK John Scofield come from the high-quality production of the house Gotoh. The combination of Gotoh 510BN bridge and Gotoh GE101A stop bar is used to transmit vibrations to the center block, while six Gotoh SGL510 tuners reliably perform their duties on the headstock. All hardware parts of the JSM20TH-BK John Scofield come of course in noble gold finish.
