Ibanez Steve Vai JEM Junior SP Electric Guitar

The Ibanez JEM Junior SP has all the hallmarks of Vai's signature model: monkey grip, lion's claw tremolo cavity and tree of life inlay on its fretboard.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Double Locking Modern Tremolo Stays in tune through dive bombs or light vibratos
Jumbo frets Makes bending strings easier
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Wizard III neck Super-fast fretting and maximum comfort

In an effort to make the JEM available to a broader fan base, Ibanez has released the JEMJRSP, providing more affordable access to the magic that is the JEM.

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. Famous for its distinctive look and innovative design, time has seen this popular, upscale guitar become the most counterfeited model in the world.

Featuring a Mahogany Body attached to a Wizard III neck, the JEMJRSP offers many of the JEM’s distinguishing characteristics; the H/S/H pickup configuration, the “Tree of Life” inlay, a double locking tremolo system, and of course, the famous Monkey grip and Lion's Claw tremolo cavity.

If you are picky about finishes being perfect? Then this may not be for you? If you put that aside. It is a Great Playing and sounding Guitar. The finish imperfections are around the screw holes and pickup jack. But really when you are playing who would even get close enough to see them? If you receive yours like mine? You will have to setup the tremolo(Floyd Rose Style). It will take about 20 mins. But when it is locked down! Amazing as it should be. Mine was missing the allen key for the locking nut. Probably just a packing error because the other ones were there and I have many of them, so no big deal. I`ve been playing for 40 yrs. And I use Dimarzios unless I am playing one of my Strats. These pickups sound about identical to a good Dimarzio. When tuned and locked. She stays in tune no matter what you do with the Tremolo. I mean, I really put it thru the ringer last night for over an hour and didn`t even have to fine tune it. And I play lead, so I Play fast and do major bends, especially with a floyd style bridge and I could not make this bridge fail. Down the road it may need a real floyd or similar? But this design and parts even of a lesser quality work and work Perfect! Definitely a Great Platform to upgrade in the future if you want. I also bought the off color green fender style knobs to put on it. So if you don`t mind setting up the tremolo? This is a really good Guitar for the money. Also whatever wood this is for the fretboard? It seems to be a hard wood with nice grain. So read more that too is another plus. Great Guitar for Leads and stunt playing! Highly Recommended! I am giving it only 4 stars because of have to setup the bridge, But really and floyd style bridge you have to do the same.
