Satch Tapes & Jeff Tyson

Hi evrbdy!!

What guitar is Jeff Tyson holding while being interviewed in the Satch Tapes movie?
I can see that it is green for sure but is it a JS-series guitar???

Yep. JS5 rainforest. Pretty damn awesome.

Merry Christmas to everyone, btw.

Re: Satch Tapes & Jeff Tyson

In the video his guitar has a natural headstock. I really dig that, but I didn't think JS5's came with that?

I'd really like to get a green JS with a maple board and natural headstock.

That rainforest is probably a prototype, not a production model.

Re: Satch Tapes & Jeff Tyson

There was a thread about this some time ago. Apparently the rainforest guitars were mixed -- some with the natural headstock, some without. Calling any rainforest a production model seems like a bit of a stretch. But if you ever come across one, you'd be wise to snatch it up.

The Ibanez JS5 was available with a natural finish heastock (special order) as well as the standard black. The JS3 "Donnie" and JS4 "Electric Rainbow" were black only headstocks, I believe.

Re: Satch Tapes & Jeff Tyson

You could not specify the headstock you wanted on a JS5. They did put natural heads on some and black on the rest, and nobody at HUSA could answer the why's, but you couldn't specify either.

The owner of that Rainforest with the natural headstock is Joe (seen in Japanese magazine Player 2006). Happy new year.

Re: Satch Tapes & Jeff Tyson

I really liked the lighter green color on this JS5, but maybe that was just because of the sun light. ?
Happy New year!!
