A JEM for the Masses!

Ibanez's JEM 70V Steve Vai electric guitar is an incarnation of the virtuoso shredder's signature model that aims to be more affordable -- without sacrificing tone or playability. Vai disciples will find all the signature elements here, including Steve's unique seafoam green finish.

A Wizard Neck Made for Speed

The JEM 70V features a 5-piece Wizard Premium neck crafted of maple and walnut. The neck has a slim profile for smooth playing in any position. KTS titanium reinforcement rods keep the neck straight so you can wail with wild abandon. The fretboard is made of rosewood and is adorned with Vai's signature Tree of Life inlay -- this time done up in seafoam green to match the body.

DiMarzio Pickups for Virtuosic Sound

In order to make guitars that accurately recreated his sound, Steve Vai worked with DiMarzio to develop the Evolution line of humbuckers featured in the Ibanez JEM models. These pickups have become known for their high output and clarity, even at high speeds and high gain. Evolution pickups also feature DiMarzio's dual-resonance configuration to create more harmonic overtones, bringing out the best in overdriven tube amps.

The JEM 70V is fitted with three Evolution pickups: a humbucker in both the neck and bridge positions, and a single-coil in the middle position. The 70V's five-way switching system allows you to explore the wide range of sounds this guitar has to offer.

Player-Friendly Upgrades Abound

Perhaps the most recognizable feature of the JEM line is the Monkey Grip handle. The JEM 70V comes with the cut-out grip and is ready for all your swinging superstar moves. Players who love dive bombs and harmonic squeals will be happy to find the guitar's Edge bridge, complemented by a lion's claw cavity that allows for upward as well as downward motion.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A Stunning Guitar!"
Overall: Over the years I have sort of become a collector of JEM's as I am a huge fan of the feel and diversity of the guitar. This one is truly the eye catcher of all of them. I can't tell you how many times people have seen my guitar collection and immediately flocked to this guitar. Something about it commands your attention... I believe that would be a nice "wow" factor on stage. How does it play? Well, I would be lying if I said it plays like my JEM's from the 90's. It feels lighter and the neck feels thinner and the edges are slightly rounded. But... it IS a JEM... It's one of those guitars that you will grow into. The wizard neck that Ibanez has been using is a "Shredders" neck. It feels fast to play and you can really get the action nice and low on this one. Value? Honestly I think this guitar is priced right where it should be. I have read complaints about factory problems but, I must have got lucky with mine. She essentially came out of the case setup and ready to play. Since I have had my guitar guy do some work on her for a professional setup but it was only because I felt the strings started to sound a little dead. Would I recommend? That is a difficult question. I would recommend this guitar to a player who has been playing for a while. I would say, if you like that JEM feel and already have one of the more expensive models... go for it! Do you play gigs? Because I would be more comfortable bringing a $1,500 guitar than a $3,000 to a gig... Personally this guitar is one of the best in my collection. I love them all but this one stands out.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beautiful Guitar! Defintely a looker!"
Overall: I purchased this guitar about 3 years ago from zZounds. From the moment you open the hard shell case it comes with, you will be shocked by the beauty of this guitar. My JEM70V had no blemishes and played amazing straight out of the case. My only gripe with guitar is the price is a little high figuring you can purchase a Japanese Prestige Ibanez for less than the $1400 price tag. With that being said, this is an amazing playing instrument and I would purchase it again if I did not own it. Ibanez continues to impress and if your looking for a versatile guitar that can play anything from blues, alternative, to metal this guitar will not let you down.
