The JSM10 is a hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2014. It is a signature model for American jazz-rock guitarist John Scofield. It is a less expensive alternative to Scofield's flagship JSM100. It was initially produced in China, but production moved to Indonesia for 2019.
The JSM10 features a thin, double cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a flamed maple top with ƒ holes and multi-layer binding and flamed maple back and sides mated to a set-in sapele neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include dual Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls and a tri-sound switch for the neck pickup, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with Quik Change III tailpiece, a bone nut and a black pickguard.
For 2016 the sapele neck was replaced the a mahogany and maple construction; for 2019 this was again changed to nyatoh and maple. For 2020 the bridge was changed to the new Gibraltar Artist.
Changes from the JSM100 include different woods and hardware, elimination of the compound radius fretboard, addition of a tri-sound switch and relocation of the output jack from the side to the front of the guitar. These last two changes are elements that were altered in adapting the AS200 for the JSM100 design, so the JSM10 is closer in these ways to the AS200.
The JSM20 is a similar model with a matte black finish.
