Yes, I've always seen him use some sort of Ibanez. For some reason I have a picture in my mind of him playing a Strat but I doubt he ever used one. :freak:

"Surfing With the Alien" was recorded with a pair of Ibanez prototypes. One had the 540P body style. Not sure about the other.


The 540 series of guitars originally had 3 models - the slim 540S Saber which became the successful "S" series, the angular 540P Power which was discontinued, and the rounded 540R Radius which evolved into the Joe Satriani model.


All were designed to be ergonomic and futuristic. They were designed by Rich Lasner who also designed the Yamaha Pacifica and is now with Modulus.
