Product Description

It all started in 1987. At the summer Chicago NAMM show, Steve Vai’s signature JEM guitars were first introduced—and Vai’s endorsement with Ibanez was officially announced. This unconventional design immediately became the most recognizable signature model in the world, and it has been loved in its various versions until now. 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the legendary JEM guitars. To commemorate this occasion, Ibanez is proud to release the JEM777, reproducing the features of the very first JEM model in an eye-catching, flashy finish.

The JEM777 is crafted with a Basswood body for a fat but well-balanced tonality. The slim JEM 5pc Maple/Walnut neck includes Jumbo frets finished with the Prestige fret edge treatment for smooth, comfortable performance. A Maple fretboard features characteristic Disappearing Pyramid inlays and scalloped 21–24 frets.

The JEM777 is equipped with DiMarzio Evolution humbuckers in its bridge and neck positions and a DiMarzio Evolution single coil in its middle position for an array of rock tones. The JEM777 will let you scream or moan with the Edge tremolo bridge, Ultralite Tremolo Arm and groundbreaking Lion’s Claw tremolo cavity, allowing pitches to be radically raised or lowered without obstruction. A Certificate of Authenticity (Tour Pass) and hardshell case are included.

Very Expensive Reissue but a nice guitar
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
This is my 4th Ibanez JEM. I had a 1989 JEM 777DY, 2009 JEM 7WV, a custom Perle Ibanez JEM, and the new 30th Anniversary JEM 777 LNG. I sold the first 2 JEM's and jumped at the chance to ordered the 30th Anniversary model. Thanks to AMS for giving me the chance to ordered the Loch Ness Green model. The color I've always wanted, by the way. Comparing the new 30th Anniversary model to my old '89 seems to be no contest. My new 30th Anniversary LNG JEM seems IMO more sturdy and less delicate than my '89. I love the EVO pickup's better than the PAF Pro's on the original JEM 777. The EVO just have more beef and power and really scream. The action is so low on my new LNG JEM it's almost effortless to play. Plus, with the added Trem Stop keeps the Edge Tremolo stable. For the price, Ibanez should have made the same painted tip switch knobs like the originals. But, no regrets with this guitar.

It is about history, not necessarily componentry
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought all three of these because of this history behind them. I was 17 when they came out and at the time they were about $1400 with tax. Nobody could afford them but they were the most insane guitar I had ever seen. Since that time I have owned over 50 Jems and while these may not compare with the best of Jems for components: Bridge is less than the best, knobs are very cheap (almost see through) and action is slightly higher imo than even 30 years ago, I got it for historical purposes. Allegedly a rep on YouTube from Ibanez says that "There are 200 green and 100 each of the others." That puts all three of these, and as anniversary models, as the rarest, production Jems outside of the EVO, which is double the price (and beat up to begin with on purpose - yet nobody complained at $7777.77) The case is phenomenal, with mounds of case candy. These should have all been signed by Steve IMO but they aren't. Buy these for history and playing, they are worth it imo.

This is an incredible guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Components? The Best! Original Edge. diMarzio Evolutions. A faithful reproduction that feels like an 87. I love mine.

Spend your money on something else
What is your opinion of this product?
I am an owner of a couple of JEM models and they are absolutely wonderful, if they are the correct price. Please, if you are going to spend 3k+ on a guitar, go with a custom build. The components on these models are not nearly worth what they are asking, especially on the UV models.
