Class: Vintage
The Ibanez Joe Pass JP20 archtop guitar was produced from late 1980 until 1990, and was based on Joe's D'Aquisto guitar.

Built at the Terada plant, the body is fully hollow, with a laminate spruce top and laminate arched back (laminates are better than solid woods for feedback rejection. The sides are laminate maple, and the neck is solid maple with a bound ebony fingerboard. The adjustable bridge and tailpiece are also ebony. Position markers and head decorations are mother of pearl with abalone inserts.

The body is a comfortable 16 inches wide, with a full depth of 2 3/4 inches; the scale length is 25 1/2 inches with a nut width of 1 3/4 inches.

The hardware is original, except for the tuners; these have been changed to gold Grover Roto-Matics. The single pickup is shifted away from the end of the neck, but not quite into the 'middle' position.

This example of the 1980 Ibanez Joe Pass JP20 is in very good condition, and plays quite well. A non-original hardshell case is included.
