Steve Vai is one of the revered few on that short list of players who have changed the way we all think about what a guitar can really do. His signature Ibanez guitars are no different: Iconic, Sublime, Awe-Inspiring, Outrageous. The Ibanez JEM/UV Series models are designed to break boundaries.
When Steve teamed up with Ibanez in 1987, little did he realize what a lasting impact his signature model guitar would have. Today, the JEM is an iconic instrument immediately identified with the legendary guitarist. As part of the Ibanez Premium series, the JEM77P is a high quality instrument created for the working pro and this latest incarnation sports a custom floral design influenced by the original version.
The JEM77 Premium model starts with an American Basswood body covered in a stunning Blue Floral pattern that maintains its unique color scheme with matching blue pickups, selector switch and control knobs. The theme continues up the neck with an elegant blue Tree of Life inlay that prominently stretches along the contrasting Maple fingerboard. The Wizard neck includes Jumbo frets finished with the Premium Fret Edge Treatment for smooth, comfortable performance. The Edge Zero II bridge features a lower profile design for comfort, and stud lock function for superior tuning stability.
Electronics include two DiMarzio Gravity Storm pickups (one at the neck, one in the bridge) and a DiMarzio Evolution single coil pickup in the middle position. These pickups are made by DiMarzio specifically for JEM guitars and are designed to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional pickups.
Smooth, fast & comfortable, the JEM Maple/Walnut Premium neck.
