Here's a summary of the history of the Ibanez JS10th Chromeboy
In 1987 Joe Satriani became an endorser of Ibanez guitars.
10 years later in 1998 Ibanez released the JS10th
(aka Chrome Boy/Chromeboy) to celebrate a decade long partnership
with Joe. These guitars are now the most sought after guitars made
506 JS10th's were produced in total and there are a handful of
Chromeboys that were refinished by Ibanez and recorded as 507(N),
there are at least 4 of these with 507b being registered right here
and one documented as being unstamped
. The original numbers of
these Chrome boys are unknown.
In 2005 the JS2PRM was released, basswood covered in aluminium. The finish
is less bright than the chrome, but just as magnificent. There was an
initial run of 20 and in true Chromeboy style, the finish had issues.
Later in 2006 the remaining promised 40 have been produced (making a total of 60)
and are on the market.
