Steve Vai's unique and progressive playing style demands an equally distinctive guitar, and the Ibanez JEMJR fits the bill perfectly. With its Quantum pickups, acrylic vine inlay, and iconic 'monkey grip' handle, the JEMJR is an excellent choice for Vai fans seeking a high-performance axe.
The JEMJR features a lightweight meranti body that delivers a balanced tone with great sustain, and its 'monkey grip' handle allows players to grab it, plug it in, and start riffin' straight away. Its Quantum humbuckers and Quantum single-coil pickup give it an incredibly versatile tone, allowing it to go from thick and crunchy to bright and sizzling with just the flip of a switch. It also sports a wickedly comfortable Wizard III maple neck, a sleek jatoba fingerboard, and 24 jumbo frets, all of which contribute to an impeccable playing experience. And, thanks to its acrylic vine inlay that gives it a striking aesthetic, this guitar exudes elegance from top to bottom.
Complete with a double-locking tremolo bridge for massive whammy bar abuse, the Ibanez Steve Vai Signature JEMJR is a true performer, great for guitarists seeking a value-packed instrument designed for progressive playing.
