Stunning looks and nice sound
Nailer, 04.05.2019
TL;DR: catching design, good build quality, classy sound - a neat instrument with a unique look.

Ibanez JSM20-BKL is not only for John Scofield's fans, but also for everyone who wants a successful combination of a classic semi-hollowbody concept and one-of-a-kind appearance.

The design is just stunning - black and gold has always combined well together, but here it is also has abalone inlays, 80's style headstock, and matte finish, which feels good and makes it look quite unique. Also, this narrow old-style headstock on Ibanez hollowbodies can now be found only on John's models). Gold hardware is slightly faded, which is intentionally, I suggest.

Other specs are also just right - 3 piece neck, ebony fretboard, nicely-processed frets, Super 58 pickups (which are killer-sounding, btw).

Cons – there are only few.
Pickup rings were slightly non-parallel to strings. Lacquer turned out to be a bit delicate - requires careful handling. The pickguard has quite a rough surface - could be polished better.

Other than that everything is just fine. BTW, my guitar turned out to be made not in China, but Indonesia, surprisingly. But the build quality is very good, nothing really to put a finger on.

A beauty
Akir0s, 09.12.2019
She is a beauty when i see her i can't believe i own that guitar i love the sound nice pickups with unique sound ,for jazz is awesome also can take gain very well . The fret-board its awesome and when you play with her u dont want to stop
Cons : Ok the bridge its for sure something that you want to change when i changed the string for 11's it started make noises i somehow get rid of them also the pickup switch it's the biggest disadvantage its really cheap for 1000 bucks guitar and sometimes i turn the pickup from neck to bridge and doesn't go stays in the middle position (happened two times when i was at a gig ) For those two things i give guality 4 stars

Volker aus Gültstein, 30.12.2020
Ich kaufte das Instrument im Oktober 2019 (für thomann: Bestellnr 12890267). Auftragsabwicklung und Lieferung durch Thomann sehr gut. Ich bin Hobbymusiker und übe im Schnitt etwa eine halbe Stunde pro Tag auf diesem Instrument. Mein wesentlicher Kritikpunkt: es gibt kaum eine Schraube, die ich noch nicht nachziehen oder neu einschrauben musste. Zweimal löste sich die Schraube des Gurthalters am Hals vollständig, habe ich jetzt mit Holzleim eingesetzt. Im Moment ist der Ausgang zum Klinkenstecker zum wiederholten Mal so lose, dass ich nachher meinen Werkzeugkasten aus dem Keller holen darf. Das gleiche beim Umschalter der Tonabnehmer und dem Umschalter für Singlecoil. Bei einem Instrument für 400 Euro würde ich das hinnehmen, bei einer Gitarre für 1075 Euro bin ich mehr als enttäuscht. Der Klang in den von mir bevorzugten "Clean"-Einstellungen ist durchschnittlich, einen Vergleich mit einer ES-335 wollte ich nicht anstellen. Positiv ist das wirklich sauber und schön verarbeitete Griffbrett zu erwähnen. Die Gitarre ist korrekt eingestellt und spielt sich angenehm. Wenn der permanente Ärger mit den mechanischen Teilen nicht wäre, könnte ich vier Sterne geben. So halt nur 2 ehrliche Sterne.

Ibanez JSM 20
Erwan34, 28.05.2020
Désirant une guitare au son chaud des hollow body , je ne suis pas déçu ! le son chaud s'obtient quand elle est raccordée à l'ampli et en acoustique , on est loin d'une vraie acoustique ( j'ai par ailleurs une Martin ). J'aurais été ravi d'avoir une petite notice ou vidéo YT donnant les bases des réglages du varitone ( terme Gibson) en fonction des choix de micro et en fonction des musiques jouées ( jazz/blues/rock ).Enfin ce serait sympa de livrer une guitare avec mention des tirants posés et de l'action ( remarque générale et donc non spécifique à cette guitare ).
Pour conclure , je suis ravi de son rendu sonore !
