    A few years back I remember seeing Satriani playing a telecaster style guitar with an Ibanez neck and an odd pickup combination. It had a regular tele bridge and pickup but a strat pickup had been installed between the bridge saddles and the regular tele bridge pickup! I only saw him play it once and I really wonder what that combination would bring sonically! The only pic I can find on the net is this one which isn't of the guitar I was thinking of as it had a hb in the neck but you can just about see the strat pickup in the bridge!

    Anyone else remember it?

    Is it a St Blues? It just kinda reminds me of one.

    Hi - this is intriguing....
    Anyway I came up with this 5th or 6th times removed quote, posted by member 'R1FSR' in 2007 (!) on the Vai.com forum - said to be Joe talking about the 'Love in Space' album...

    "For guitars, generally, the melodies and solos are done on my Ibanez guitars – either the JS1000 or the seven-string prototype. I also have what I call my Ibanez Telecaster, which is my favorite “Tele,” actually. For a while, Ibanez, Gary Brawer, and myself were trying to come up with the ultimate new-age Tele-style guitar. You can hear it on “Lifestyle.” It’s basically a piece of swamp ash carved by Dan Ransom. Gary did all the setup, and the pickups are DiMarzios. I [added] the neck from an Ibanez JS6, and this guitar just came alive.
    I’ve also got original ’58, ’56, and ’63 Esquires and Teles, and they all have their qualities. A Telecaster was my main guitar during my formative years, so I’ve always had this affinity for the shape, sound, and the way it functions..."

    The provenance is obviously flimsy so take in with a pinch of salt ....
