Is there any signature guitar more identifiable than the Ibanez JEM? Designed in collaboration with guitar maestro Steve Vai in 1985, the JEM set new standards for performance. Based on the ubiquitous superstrat models from the 80s, Vai set about creating a unique instrument that is instantly recognised.
Originally specified to feature a solid body with a bolted maple 24-fret neck, this became a standard choice for similar instruments. Add to that the DiMarzio pickups in a versatile HSH configuration and the then ground-breaking floating bridge, and you’ve got a high-performance guitar suitable for the virtuoso legend that is Steve Vai! Aesthetic touches like the tree of life inlay and signature “Monkey Grip” also set this guitar apart from the rest. The Ibanez JEM is one of the strongest and longest-running signature guitars in history! If you want a slice of the JEM, there’s two models coming highly recommended this Christmas:
This is the ultimate Ibanez JEM guitar. With many of the features that made the original so great, this model is decorated with a stunning blue floral pattern. The Grand Prix car of the guitar world, and we are offering it to you at an incredible price this Christmas!
When you require an instrument that gives you the highest performance value, look no further! This is the “full-fat” JEM, and features a truly unique aesthetic. This is very close to Vai’s original design, equipped with DiMarzio pickups and the incredible Edge-Zero II bridge. When your playing goes to the extreme, this guitar has you covered. Ibanez further improve the neck design with a Maple/Walnut combination.
Less garish than other models, the blue floral theme weaves tastefully across the maple fretboard. A serious guitar that will work as a blank canvas for the most extreme performances you can muster!
We are offering this guitar at the best price in the UK this Christmas! There’s also FREE next-day delivery available, so you can be sure it will arrive in time for the big day.
The perfect gift for an extreme guitar player. All restrictions to your playing are removed, release your expression with the Ibanez JEM! And if you’ve been good all year, maybe it’s time to treat yourself to this icon of the guitar world!
If you love the JEM but the price tag puts it a little out of your reach, we have the solution right here! The Ibanez JEM JR takes much of what makes the JEM great, and brings it to a more affordable price.
There’s an awful lot of guitar for your money here. The JEM JR is manufactured to exceptionally high standards by Ibanez, and the extremely fast Wizard III neck is legendary in guitar circles. Bolted onto a mahogany body, this guitar feels great in your hands and gives you a solid base for taking your playing to a new level. The sleek white finish and signature “Monkey Grip” ensure that this guitar is instantly recognisable as Steve Vai’s signature!
The Quantum pickups are in-house Ibanez designs, which helps to keep the cost lower. There are no compromises however; these pickups deliver hot, clean, high output tone. They also feature on many other of Ibanez’s mid to high-range guitars, affording you a versatile guitar sound and excellent dynamic response.
The JEM JR really is one of the best guitars available in this price range, and we are offering it at the best price in the UK! There’s next-day delivery available, meaning you can get hold of yours in time for Christmas.
If you’re sold on the JEM aesthetic but are also money-conscious, the JEM JR from Ibanez is a great option. This is an instrument that truly lets you express yourself to the max!
