Product Description

The Steve Vai Signature JEM solid-body electric guitar has been a top seller for Ibanez since it debuted in the late 1980s, gaining iconic status among musicians who value exceptional performance and style. Now, the limited-edition JEM77WDP "Woody" takes the JEM platform in a bold, new direction. It’s the wild child of the line, built from premium hardwoods that lend this axe a raw, dark-hearted look, and custom electronics that provide an unmatched tonal statement in any player’s hands.

The JEM77WDP "Woody" casts its spell starting with a solid block of clear-finished Honduran mahogany that replaces the basswood more typical of this line. The mahogany gives the guitar a uniquely warm, resonant tone with a little more crunch in the top end. A veneer of dusky Indian rosewood is bonded to the guitar’s top and is set off by a contrasting pickguard and matching headstock made of intricately patterned burled maple. The knobs, too, are made of wood, for an earthy, organic feel. The JEM77WDP also features the through-body monkey grip characteristic of the entire Steve Vai Signature range.
 
Each JEM77WDP includes a hand-finished five-piece Wizard neck assembled from contrasting strips of maple and black walnut with cold-rolled KTS™ titanium rods inside, which reinforce the neck along its entire length and eliminate dead spots for improved sonic performance. The fretboard, crafted from Indian rosewood, features a sinuous “Tree of Life” inlay and jumbo frets finished with the Ibanez Premium Fret Edge Treatment, which makes even the most technical, up-the-neck playing smooth and effortless.

But the beating heart inside the Ibanez JEM77WDP solid-body electric guitar is a trio of Steve Vai's signature DiMarzio Dark Matter 2 pickups, which deliver eye-popping sustain and a practically unlimited range of tonal patterns. The electronics package includes two DiMarzio Dark Matter 2 humbucker pickups—one at the base of the neck, another near at the bridge—finished with an intricate laser-cut motif of interlocking gears inspired by steampunk culture. A DiMarzio Dark Matter 2 single-coil pickup with a satin nickel finish anchors the middle position, providing a full, rounded sound in a variety of rock styles.

The JEM77WDP solid-body electric guitar also features a comfortable, low-profile Edge Zero II tremolo bridge with a stud lock function for long-lasting tuning stability. All hardware is finished in Cosmo black.

Each guitar comes with a hard-shell case and Ibanez’s limited lifetime warranty.

Worth every cent
What is your opinion of this product?
I feel sorry for the that 1 guy that got a lemon. I've had no issues. I did have to properly set up the Trem to my liking but that's to be expected. The frets were dressed properly, the neck is straight, the pickups are perfect, no nicks, dings, dents in the body. The finish was great. If you are in the market and willing to spend the cash, you won't be disappointed.

Horribly made even my second one. Looks cool though
What is your opinion of this product?
I was really looking forward to this model. Sadly, my first was an instant return due to tremolo issues and fret/intonation issues. The trem bar was crashing into the volume knob. AMS was great and sent a new one, still issues but better. After about $150 worth of fretwork it still doesn’t play well and the pickgaurd is warping behind the bridge pickup. Calling Ibanez directly for their warranty claim. AMS is great, this JEM model is wall art only and plagued with manufacturing issues.

This is one superb guitar!
What is your opinion of this product?
First, the craftsmanship. The build and attention to detail are amazing. The wood is excellent, the burl especially beautiful. Playing this guitar is pure magic, from the neck to the D'Addario strings to the Dark Matter pickups...this thing is a pleasure to play. It came perfectly set up. A careful inspection revealed that the people at Ibanez that signed off on the delivery prep did a great job. Tune it up and rock.

Well worth the $$$
What is your opinion of this product?
Better craftmanship than my 2017 Gibson LP standard.My first floydrose style axe, a large learning curve to keep in tune. This axe almost forces me to wanna play fast, real fast. Love the neck.

Best JEM yet
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is amazing, the fit and finish are spot on. The look of the headstock and pick guard with the birdseye finish is amazing with the dark rosewood finish on the body. The Dark Matter pickups are great, these have such a nice tone, not too bright but very articulate. The hard shell case is a great bonus too.

This thing is fantastic!
What is your opinion of this product?
Pictures can in no way do this thing justice. It looks so much better than the pictures. I let a friend play it and didn't think he was going to give it back. If you're on the fence about this guitar then I say buy it! It's a seriously awesome guitar!
