Introducing the Ibanez JEMJRLWH Steve Vai White left-handed electric guitar. Steve Vai is one of the revered few on that short list of players who have changed the way we all think about what a guitar can really do. His signature Ibanez guitars are no different: iconic, sublime, awe-inspiring, and outrageous. The Ibanez JEM/UV Series is a spectacular instrument that features a contoured basswood body and a 5-piece maple and walnut bolt-on neck that provides easy access to all registers. A 24-fret rosewood fretboard is adorned with a colorful “Tree of Life” pattern inlay and has the high-speed JEM Prestige profile that gives Steve Vai the playability he needs. The JEM/UV sports chrome hardware and includes Steve’s “Monkey Grip” handle cut on the body.
The JEM/UV is loaded with a DiMarzio Evolution DP158 humbucker in the neck position, a DiMarzio Evolution DPS1 single-coil in the middle position, and a DiMarzio Evo2 DP159 in the bridge position. This pickup combination features ceramic magnets and generates a wide sound variety of great tones needed for modern rock. The Evolution DP158 pickup was designed for Steve Vai and is fat, punchy, and loud. The DiMarzio Evolution DPS1 single-coil has a bright, clean tone. The DiMarzio Evo2 DP159 is tight, aggressive, and even louder. It produces a wide range of overtones. Ibanez’s split-5 wiring provides incredible tonal versatility. Controls include a master volume and tone.
The acclaimed Edge tremolo features knife-edge-like pivot surfaces for virtually friction free operation. Locking studs contribute to tuning stability. The low-profile design of the Edge tremolo includes fine tuners conveniently angled back to prevent right hand touches. Ibanez’s Lion’s Claw tremolo cavity allows pitches to be radically raised or lowered.
