    I had a NGD earlier this month. IbbySlice.jpg
    An Ibanez JSM10 John Scofield signature semi-hollow. I have wanted one since the 80s, and just pulled the trigger on this reissue of a 1982 AS200. I had the pickguard and truss rod cover off because I was inspecting the guitar and making adjustments to the truss rod to compensate for the climate difference after shipping.

    I have only played two guitars with similar ease of playability, both from the 70s: a Nippon Gakki (Yamaha) ES175 copy, and an Ibanez Custom Agent.

    I guess this is Chi-Fi Guitar-Fi, since this one is made in China.

    So much can be said about guitar neck dimensions. It’s a mix of so many factors, neck thickness, shape, how wide the nut is, the radius choice and fret work done at the end. It’s the style of frets and action, if that’s the action we are used to or physically fits us. goes on and on....string spacing, type of strings.

    And finally finding that mix. It may even be in some guitar we didn’t even expect it to be right in.

    I like having a bit more room between strings so that I don't accidentally mute open strings I want to ring out.

    I'm pretty sure this would be an end-game guitar if I believed such a thing existed. I subscribe to the X + 1 formula for the perfect number of guitars, where X represents my current number of guitars...

    Edit- Wrong formula, lol.

    There are tendencies too to have guitars worked on. But the risk is that at times it’s better to leave well enough alone. Lol

    Can anyone help identify this guitar?

    Looks to be a Fender (or Squier) Stratocaster, but I am unsure of the specific model or country of origin.
    Do you know the name of the artist? That might help narrow down the specifics...

    Looks like Ben Harper to me...though I cannot confirm that...definitely looks like a Strat to me...
