    If I was going to buy any Ibanez it would be the Satriani model. The neck has a very different feel to the likes of the Jem - more like an old Fender profile with smaller frets. Tone wise, the Fred pup is very middly and quite high output without being over the top - great for squeals. I can't compare it to a Wolfgang as I've never spent any time with one of those.

    A Wolfgang Std. is my main axe (and has been for 10 years), the two other guitars I tried were the PRS (several different models) and the Ibanez Satriani Model. The PRS was the most flexable in tone, but the neck in the Wolfie was more comfortable. The D-Tuna also sold me and I wanted a Floyd. I can't pull up on it though (but don't usually anyway unless I am playing Satriani type stuff).

    The Satch model Ibanez was awesome though, I liked how it played. I own an old Ibanez RG-550 (think of it as a VERY stripped down Jem at least their early models). When I got it in 1989, I loved the neck, now I HATE it. It's wide and thin. Horrible to switch back and forth from the Wolfie (the RG-550 is my backup guitar). The newer Ibanezes seem to basically play the same, however the Satch model is a different neck much nicer feel.

    The Pickups in the Satch model are a little to midrangey and harsh for me. I think for me, the Wolfgang pickups are the best. I play VH, Satriani kind of stuff. Agreed the harmonics are easier to eek out on the Satch model, it's a very open sound. But this is so subjective and depends on what amp you play through. I think the Satch guitar would probably sound great with the Peavey JSX amp and Mesa Boogie Rectifier series (What Satriani uses). I play my Wolfie with a 5150 half stack and occasionally with a Boogie MKIII.

    I am a huge Satch fan as well as VH, so if anyone wants to buy me a Satch Ibanez I'd play it ;-)

    Tough call...however the Satch model IS still in production!!! The Wolfgang is not :-(

    I don't believe the Satch pickups are particularly High output. They measure about 10k Which is much closer to PAF territory than high output
