The JS6000 is a JS series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1994. It is a signature model of American guitarist Joe Satriani. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The JS6000 was the second Satriani signature model with a hard tail bridge after the similar JS6 it replaced. It features a mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot position markers. Components include a pair of DiMarzio humbucking pickups mounted in metal pickup rings, a Gotoh GTC101 fixed bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The JS600 is less expensive fixed bridge JS model.

The JS6000 was discontinued after 1995. Another high-end JS hard tail model was not offered until the JS2000 in 2002.
