When Steve Vai 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 incarnation sports a custom floral design influenced by the original version.

The JEM77P 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.

have always wanted a JEM series guitar and couldn't afford the upper end ones...i dont have any bad things to say about this guitar.. ..extremely versatile sound wise ..will do any style you want to throw at it... .. servicable tremelo.. although i wish it had the zero return mechanism in it.. but its fine... great looking finish and i love the fact it has a maple board... been using this for shows because it will do enough things i can leave a couple of other guitars at home... im perfectly happy with it ..no regrets

Sound
the pickups will handle everything from progressive shred to merle Haggard tele tones ..i was actually surprised by the number of sounds i can get from it...the humbuckers are quite a bit hotter than the middle single coil ...you'll need to make note of that when switching around to leave yourself some volume control to make up the difference...one tip for the whammy bar it doesnt have a tension bushing in the lock ring so to prevent the bar from swinging around ..which i dont prefer... just put a couple of wraps of teflon plumbers tape on the tremelo lock ring post threads ... the more tape wraps the more stiff the bar will move and stay locked in place ..

Features
great neck on this guitar a little heavier than i expected...fit and finish are spot on

Ease of Use
extremely playable... no problems at all

Quality
the quality is consistent read more with the ibanez premium brand specifications.. haven't had to do any major setups on it since i had it.. the finish seems to be more durable than past ibanez guitars i9 have owned and i dont always baby my gear ...

Value
i think so i dont look at it and go "why did i do that?" lol... i think the price is fair for what you get

Manufacturer Support
i have several ibanez guitars.. also other brands ...only contacted them a few times ..always helpful

The Wow Factor
im a vai fan so theres that i suppose... but i got a lot more satisfaction out of it than just that point...

Musical Background:
music ed degree ...gigging professional guitar bass drums...mostly guitar tho...

Musical Style:
all/any styles. heavy jam band is my fav...
