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 JEM7VP is a high quality instrument created for the working pro.

The Ibanez JEM7VP Steve Vai Signature starts with an Alder body featuring its clear tone, and covered in high-gloss pure White with gold hardware. The Wizard 5pc Maple/Walnut neck with KTS TITANIUM rods includes Jumbo frets finished with the Premium Fret Edge Treatment for smooth, comfortable performance.

Its elegant Tree of Life inlay prominently stretches along the contrasting Ebony fretboard. The JEM7VP is equipped with DiMarzio Evolution humbuckers in its bridge and neck positions and a DiMarzio Evolution single coil in its middle position for an array of rock tones. The JEM7VP will let you scream or moan with the Edge tremolo bridge and groundbreaking Lion's Claw tremolo cavity, allowing pitches to be radically raised or lowered without obstruction. A gig bag is included.

I've had the JEM now for about 6 months, I sold a Charvel (mex) to get it - all I can say is that the JEM continues to impress me with every aspect of what a great guitar should be. I'm not a shredder so I changed the stock pickups over to the PIA set. This is the 1st time I have fallen in love with Dimarzio Pickups (and I'm very picky). All of my other guitars have Bare Knuckle pups to deliver what I need. The JEM with the PIA pups is the most versatile guitar I own while at the same time being a top performer. The factory set up is super (and I'm a guitar tech in Austin, Tx). The stock pups are awesome if you want to cut through the mix. However, if you give them time to break in, they start sounding warmer and very playable. I'm not selling them because they are great and I may want to switch back at some point. The features of this guitar are superb, esp for the $. I find this guitar to be very well balanced in all aspects and the neck is like no other neck out there. It is so solid and does not go out of tune when changing weather conditions come around. tonally, it's so versatile (with either pup set). The playability is what I like - I have a bad case of Ullner nerve issues adn I can play the JEM for long periods of time (3 - 4 hour gigs). I can't say that about the rest of my guitars. I did not think I would like the Edge trem but, I have learned how good it is. I do recommend the optional Carbon trem arm because of the stability improvements with it.
