JS25ART - This is arguably the coolest signature model ever. Joe has always had that artist spirit, whether he was designing his picks and straps, publishing a coffee table book of his graphic art and designs, or drawing on the guitars of his fans. In a stroke of genius, Joe has taken his artistic talent to his signature model and personally painted 50 of them with his unique designs. Painted at the LA Custom Shop over 2 days and then carefully wrapped and sent back to Japan for finishing, the JS25ART is a true original, being the only signature guitar actually painted by the artist himself. Yes, Eddie did stripe guitars to be painted and it could be argued that is very artistic, but I don't think they're even in the same conversation. Joe's designs are reminiscent of  Basquiat's work during the 1980's, without the graffiti, each being based on the series of 3 figures, some in combination with graphics, some as stand alone, all, very cool. Joseph Satriani has proven he is much more than a world class musician. Limited to the 50 guitars painted, 25 of them will be available in the US.

There is a fantastic video documenting the process here.
