Great instrument
Denis1969, 03.02.2015
After having JSM10 for about 5 months, it's time for a short review.
You all know the specs so I won't talk about that.

The intonation and action were set very nicely at the factory, no problem there.
Neck is perfect, feels a bit thicker than on AF75 and AK95 I have.
The fret edges are super smooth, one of the best I've ever played.
Finish is very nice, I tried very hard to find a flaw, but there is none.
Tuning machines are smooth and tuning is very stable.

The pickups are listed as Super 58, but looking on Ibanez site they are not the same as in the jsm100 model. They sound great nevertheless.
I've put a set of Thomastik Jazz swing 11 (flatwounds) which further improves the sound IMO.

The only bad things on my guitar were the bridge and the tailpiece. The gold color disappeared from the bridge near the top post and the tailpiece started to tarnish in a very bad way in less than a month.
Judging from the looks of still shiny gold hardware on my 2011 Ibanez AK95 I don't know how these two pieces slipped through quality control.
I replaced them with Gotoh GE103B-T and GE101ZG which are noticeably better although I really like the Quik Change III idea.
The pickup covers and tuning machines show no trace of tarnish though.

All in all great sound and playability, well worth the price.

Amazing!
28.12.2016
I expected the guitar to be good but its much better then i thought, its such a joy to play it, tuning is very stable, neck feels a bit tick at first but i just needed couple of hours and now it feels perfect, finish is just flawless, no imperfections what soever. pickups are hot, with a little bit of gain you can easily get that Sco tone.

Gemischte Gefühle
Alwe68, 17.06.2020
Eins gleich vorweg, HAMMERSOUND und ich hab mich entschieden die Gitarre doch zu behalten.

Eigentlich hätte die Gitarre 5 Sterne verdient. Des Soundes wegen und auch wegen des schönen Finischs.

Warum dennoch nur 2 Punkte, kommt im Folgenden:

Der Anlieferzustand war "unterirdisch", und damit ist nicht die Verpackung gemeint.

Der Hals erinnerte mich etwas an einen englichen Langbogen. Konkret waren es bei der tiefen E-Saite im 8. Bund knapp 4mm (Saite runtergedrückt im 1. und 15 Bund). Saitenhöhe im 12.Bund von 7mm geht in Richtung unspielbar. Ließ sich beides relativ einfach einstellen. Darauf hätte ich maximal halben Punkt abzug gegeben.
Was mich dann aber zu 2 Punkten Abzug bewogen hatte, war der Zustand der Bundstäbchen. Die Bearbeitungsspuren sind mit bloßem Auge sichtbar und erzeugen beim Bending ein Geräusch, als würde man die Saite über ein Sägeblatt ziehen.

Ich habe mich entschlossen die Gitarre dennoch zu behalten. Der letzte Punkt ist zwar noch nicht behoben, werde ich aber beim nächsten Saitenwechsel nachholen.

Der letzte Puntabzug ist der Thomann-Reaktion geschuldet. Nach meiner Mail geschah wider Erwarten garnichts.

Liebes Thomann-Team, das kennt man von euch eigentlich anders!

Fazit: Wer sich bei Werkzeugbenutzung nicht gleich verletzt und die Mühe nicht scheut, wird ein sehr schönes Instrument erhalten. Wer aber gleich losspielen möchte, wird enttäuscht sein.

Echt een top gitaar
08.09.2015
Ik heb een paar hele mooie gitaren, maar ik kom sinds ik deze gitaar heb bijna altijd op de JSM-10 uit. Ik speel ermee in een big band en disco band. Het is een heerlijke gitaar voor jazz en funk en speelt als een dolle.
Het gouden beslag slijt wel snel, maar daar doet het spelen op deze gitaar niet aan onder.
