The JS2 was Ibanez's third attempt to create a chrome-plated JS model after it's namesake, the JS2 (1990) and the JS10th anniversary model. Only 60 examples of the JS2 PRM were said to be made, although others say actual production may have been as high as 76 units — either way it was a very limited edition.
This JS2 featured an American basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a matching headstock with a protective glass overlay (similar to the JS2K) and a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with unique position markers consisting of abalone dots inlaid inside mirror dots. Components include an Edge double locking tremolo bridge, a locking nut, dual DiMarzio hand-wound and chromed humbucking pickups and Gotoh tuning machines.
The finish is composed of atomized stainless steel applied via a vacuum metalization process which leaves a metallic coating a few microns thick. This produced a finish that was darker than the previous chrome guitars (almost a cosmo black shade), but was also none too durable.
