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.
