Smile Guitar, painted by Rubina Satriani

Here's Joe Satriani with a guitar, painted by Rubina Satriani. I think it's pretty cool.



Here's the page where I found it. If you can speak Spanish, you can read it. But there is also a picture of Joe's setup in 1990. It's really interesting.

I can translate it if people would like. It'll take me a few hours but, it can be done.

Re: Guitar, painted by Rubina Satriani

From Babelfish:
"I use D'Addario 009 to 042. For the recording I used guitars assembled with Chandler, ESP or Boogie parts. All my guitars have Floyd Rose bridges, and in the studio I use any thing that sounds good ". This Joe Satriani said soon after sending his second album called "Surfing with the Alien". "In the matter of effects, I use some Boss, a Chandler Tube Driver, Crybaby wah and all types of delays. In the studio I use Eventide Harmonizers and Lexicon and EMT delays. As amplifiers I use Marshall (1968 a Super Bass modified by Todd Langer, a 1979 Mk II Lead or a Jubilee) and Marshall speakers with 25 watts Celestion loudspeakers. Also a Roland JC-120. In the recording I used the Scholz Rockman for the clean sounds, a Mesa/Boogie Quad Preamp direct to console, and a Fender Princeton Reveb. The equipment is mic'd with a Shure SM57 or a AKG C12-A."

" "Live I use (in stereo) two different Marshall 100 watt heads with preamps to obtain different amounts from distortion. From my guitar I go to a tuner, from there to a octaver, wah wah, distortion, chorus or flanger, delay and a volume pedal. Then the signal passes through a stereo chorus and to both amps, which previously happened through separate delays." For playing, Satriani used a Ibanez 540 (modified Radius) called "Thing" with a pair of DiMarzio pickups. "Previously the DiMeola in the neck and a Pro 151 in the bridge. Now use a Paf Pro in the neck, and in the bridge a pickup that in spite of being a humbucker, has certain qualities of a single coil. It was designed by Steve Blucher at DiMarzio and we called it Fred, because for each design we used the names of the people of the *Picapiedras." "the Edge trem on my guitar has only two pivots and the handle is straight, noninclined upwards. The tuning is like the one of a Fender Stratocaster of 60's. The potentiometer for the tone is disconnected, but as he is push/pull, when I raise it drives a reduction in the serious tones (bass roll-off)."

*Picapiedras = I haven't a clue. Though if I had to guess I'd say Flintstones, as piedras means 'stones'

Re: Guitar, painted by Rubina Satriani

Picapiedras is Flintstones, I remember reading in another interview that when they were designing the Fred they were naming all the prototypes after different Flintstones characters, I think Vai did the same thing but with Harley Davidson engines.

Just imagine how close we were to debating the qualities of Barney and Knucklehead pickups

He is referring to the cartoon The flintstones that's why they called it FRED like FRED FLINTSTONE

Re: Guitar, painted by Rubina Satriani

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when he signed with Ibanez he had a JS made with that paint scheme?

Re: Guitar, painted by Rubina Satriani

Joe has always been a 22 fretter. Looking at the picture now I wonder why?
