Pretty sweet sound from a little amp outdoors.

Media dudes have no idea, and these ones were no exception. "Oh yeah nice song there, what was it ? Starry Fight ? Mary Might ?, well anyway whatever it was that guy had sunglasses on and the beach looked cold....."

Hey Rich, was that a JS100 ?

Hey! That's the name of my guitar! "Starry Night".

Anyways. the head stock looked to be a js1000 neck because of the gold "Ibanez" on it. But I see the Joe inlay on the fretboard, so it could be a JS1.

Haven't had time to watch the video, but I'll chime in with the info that the mid 90's JS1000s had a gold logo and a plaque at the 21st fret that read "JS Custom" instead of the "Joe Satriani" found on the JS100. If you can make out the words that'll tell us for sure, but if you can just see the plaque, it's equally likely to be a 1000.

Rich identified this guitar a couple of months ago:

I didn't see the clip, but I saw a pic and I think it's the 540 that Rich described. I could be wrong though.

Copy and paste -

This was a one off made by Hoshino and given to Joe, supposedly on some Hoshino anniversary [which is more puzzling than conclusive, the 90th ann. was 98', maybe a 93' [85th] but using an early sample of the JS Custom inlay plaque neck of the 94'-96' JS1000's] anyway, done by a guy using a ceramic technique they use on bowls [Joe's words, not mine]. The graphic is in red white and blue and looks exactly the same [and same technique] as the 97' S540JAPAN which were done by [supposedly, Hoshino info here] the only guy in the world that works in this technique, extremely caustic process. The S540J is in different colors though.

Thanks Iain I've downloaded it and watched it loads of times. The guitar is gorgeous (thanks EXCrosslink for the piccy). Maybe it's a JS-5th anniversary?

Either way I kinda want one... it

i found a pic of the R540Japan Rich was talking about at ibanezregister.com, looks pretty good won't that toxic paint be harmful to the player, say if the clear coat wears through?

I'd bet it's only (highly) toxic during the actual process and when it's dry it'd be pretty safe.
I hope

Rich said thast the process was "Caustic" meaning that it would probably like to eat through your skin if you didn't have decent protection during it's application.

Once the finish is dry it wouldn't pose any particularly harmful qualities, unless you re-activate it's liquid state or set fire to it then inhale the fumes.

Side note : I smoked a guitar once in college, but I didn't inhale.
