What we say:
At A Glance:
Straight from the Crystal Planet itself, this striking Chrome Boy guitar is one of Joe Satriani’s most famous and iconic instruments. Updated to reflect Joe’s current requirements, this other-worldly axe is the perfect platform to launch your playing into the next dimension!
Originally released in 1998 to accompany Satriani’s Crystal Planet album, the Chrome Boy (this nickname became official over the years) was a striking and unique take on Joe’s signature Ibanez JS models. Covered in a mirror-like chrome finish, the original guitars, which accompanied Joe on the Crystal Planet World Tour and G3 guitar events, has 22 frets and a selection of Joe’s signature DiMarzio humbuckers.
In the years since, Joe has almost entirely shifted on to 24 frets, and this new Chrome Boy reflects that. Favouring a mix between vintage and Space-Age in his specs, Joe opts for medium frets and a 9.84” radius fingerboard. These choices bring more ‘feel’ from the guitar, and make it distinct from other shred machines.
Features We Love:
Chrome Boy Finish
Released to accompany the Crystal Planet album, the Chrome Boy (as it was originally nicknamed and is now officially known) has ever been a striking, stand-out take on Joe's already stunning signature models. The iconic mirror chrome finish has to be seen to be believed!
Sustainiac Neck Pickup
The Sustainiac Neck Pickup delivers incomparable, infinite, controllable sustain to open up your palette of sounds to unexplored reaches. The Push/Pull Tone Control activates the sustain effect, while the mini switch lets you choose between modes. Plus, with the Sustainer function deactivated, the Sustainiac still operates as a fantastic sounding singlecoil pickup.
Powerful, Versatile Electronics
Paired with the Sustainiac device is Joe's stunning signature DiMarzio pickup, the Satchur8 humbucker. With its powerful, versatile output and buttery midrange, it bites when you want, but gets as mellow as you like when you back off the attack. The electronics are rounded out with a high-pass filter on the volume pot to ensure you don't lose your high end when you dial down the volume, making this guitar one unbelievably versatile tone machine!
