Steve Vai has changed the way musicians think about what a guitar can really do. His signature Ibanez guitars are no different: iconic, sublime, awe-inspiring, and outrageous. The Ibanez JEM series guitars are trailblazers in a world of imitators “ there's nothing like them. These Steve Vai guitars have been proudly made in Japan since their debut in 1987
The Steve Vai Signature UV77 RE electric guitar has a contoured basswood body and features a 5-piece maple and bubinga bolt-on neck that provides easy access to all registers. This 7-string Steve Vai guitar has an outrageous finish that recreates the legendary multi-color motif of original designer Darren Johansen, the master of swirl. A 24-fret rosewood fretboard is also adorned with colorful disappearing pyramid inlays and has the high-speed JEM Prestige guitar profile that gives Steve Vai the playability he needs.
The Ibanez UV77 RE Steve Vai signature guitar unleashes scorching highs, bone-rattling lows and every bit of tone and nuance in between, with its powerful and perfectly balanced DiMarzio Blaze II humbucking and single-coil pickups. Ibanez's split-5 wiring provides incredible tonal versatility. The UV sports black chrome hardware and comes equipped with the original 7-string Lo-Pro Edge 7 tremolo bridge. The Ibanez Lion's Claw tremolo cavity allows pitches to be radically raised or lowered. The Steve Vai JEM guitar comes with an Ibanez flight case.

Surely this is just an attempt to legitimize the fact that these now cost about 1200 for the standard jem. I remember that 10 years ago, you couldnt give them away. So marketing 101 says just boost the price, then discount it! Still, the day of shred is past and this axe, though mighty, has all the desirablity factor of big blue teased hair. And at 6k, the only likely customer is someone who blew millions on coke, and is now down to 10,000 and their last baggie of crack. Plays nice though, and the swirly pattern looks, well, swirly!
