Ibanez Joe Satriani LACS Prototype #1 - L.A. Custom Shop Proto - SIGNED
Ibanez Joe Satriani L.A. Custom Shop (LACS) Prototype #1
Built for one of the greatest guitarists in history - Joe Satriani, by the legendary Master Luthier from the Ibanez Custom Shop – Mike Lipe, who built also other LACS guitars for Joe Satriani (among other notable guitarists).
The guitar was signed by Joe Satriani during the day of the G3 show in Warsaw, Poland (March 19 2018).
Joe mentioned, that he gave the guitar to Mike Lipe as a present for his great work on the JS model.
later, this custom instrument was acquired by well known West Coast musician/studio musician Craig Tarwater, who was an acquaintance of Mike Lipe. Tarwater gave the guitar in the first half of the 90's to the father of the person from whom we've received it.
This is a very rare, one of a kind, truly extraordinary used guitar, and considering the prices of JS3 and JS5 Prototypes which sold (also built by LACS/neck built by Mike Lipe) for 10,000-12,500USD - this is a great investment, and will be a great addition to any guitar collection, especially if you're into Ibanez LACS.
