The Ibanez JEM has been the mainstay of Steve Vai's sound for decades, with its distinctive looks, super low action and monster tone, it's easy to see why the original shred master himself loves these guitars so much.
The JEM77WDP in Charcoal Brown offers something a little bit different though, while still the super cool JEM we all know and love, it now features a few awesome upgrades. With a Mahogany body and Rosewood top, the new JEM is a tonewood dream, with rich tones and great sustain it not only looks killer but it sounds it too! With the signature Steve Vai Monkey Grip you have something to grab hold of when you shred to the extreme!
The 5 piece Maple/Walnut Wizard neck is exactly what Ibanez are known for, with its flat radius and thin profile you can shred for days. The Rosewood fingerboard is just amazing and features the signature Tree of Life inlay that makes the JEM so special. With Premium fret edge treatment, the JEM has hand rolled fret edges for a truly smooth and precise feel.
Designed in partnership with Steve Vai, the DiMarzio Dark Matter 2 pickups deliver all the crushing, soaring Vai-esque tones you could ever want! These high gain pups have a great harmonic range but without the harsh top end, they are really well rounded and organic but still pack a killer punch. With super cool steampunk influenced covers these pickups are something else!
This is more than just a Steve Vai signature model, it's an incredible guitar at an incredible price!View Full Specs
