Ibanez JEM

Ibanez JEM

The Ibanez JEM is a creation made with and for Steve Vai. It was first manufactured by Ibanez in 1987 and has now 5 sub models that are mass produced, inspite the JEM itself being a Signature Series guitar, that are the JEM7, JEM77, JEM777, JEM555 and the JEM333 (so be wary when buying). The Ibanez JEM is made in Japan.

This is most definitely a superstrat guitar, aimed at more aggressive playing guitar virtuosity. Above we can see the signature JEM feature, the handle for the guitar.

 

Some of the custom models are done up pretty fancy with designs and fretboard inlays. Definitely a guitar that somebody will look twice at.

The JEM has 24 frets on a 25.5″ long neck. The bodies range from alder, basswood,   with bound rosewood for the fret.

I really like this EVO JEM. It’s worn, with what looks like somebodies sharpie markings with EVO.
