Unique, expressive, and the epitome of cool, the new JEM77FP2 is the embodiment of Vai’s distinct personality, and of his celebrated world reputation as a true guitar innovator.
The latest Signature Model JEM guitar is distinguished by Vai’s favorite floral print pattern fabric, which is emblazoned on both the body and headstock.
“The new floral pattern JEM is perhaps the most attractive guitar I have ever seen,” says Vai. “Some guitars are built for performance, some for aesthetic. This instrument is the best of both worlds... and perhaps the universe!” he adds.
The JEM77FP2 offers three, Made in the USA DiMarzio pickups, (Evolution Humbucking, Evo2 Humbucking, and Evolution Single Coil), for powerful output and a solid hard rock sound. The Ibanez classic design Edge Bridge is a double locking tremolo bridge that features knife-edge-like pivot surfaces for virtually friction free operation and maximum tuning stability, preferred by Vai and fans of his Signature guitars. The Lion’s Claw cavity is deeper than other JEM models and allows pitches to be radically raised or lowered range of the tremolo. Other features include the Jem’s trademark Monkey Grip and the beautiful Tree of Life fret board inlay.
