Product Description

Born of the combined vision of Steve Vai and Ibanez, the revolutionary JEM continues to be one of Ibanez' leading models. JEM's are loaded with Steve Vai's choice of DiMarzio pickups - the 7V features 2 Evolution humbuckers and a DiMarzio Custom single coil in the middle. The JEM7V is built with a contoured alder body, an Edge Pro tremolo bridge and a 24-fret JEM Prestige neck with 6105 frets (rosewood fingerboard). This White model even has gold hardware!

The debut of the Steve Vai's JEM in 1987 and the introduction of his Universe 7-string changed everything. It's impossible think of any one person who has done more for the evolution of Ibanez guitars than Steve Vai.

JEM Series Features

  • Contoured basswood or alder bodies with 24-fret Prestige JEM neck provides easy access to all registers.
  • Deep routed tremolo cavities allow pitches to be lowered or raised.
  • Vai's choice of specific DiMarzio pickups for each model, combined with Ibanez Split-5 wiring, provide incredible tonal versatility.
Alder Body
Best known as the body wood for the classic single coil, bolt on neck guitar, alder produces clear, full bodied vintage tone that works well for lead or rhythm work.

Rosewood Fingerboard
Rosewood offers a strong, bright sound and an attractive appearance with a long grain.

A few words about Ibanez…
Without a doubt Ibanez is one of the world’s foremost guitar manufacturers. The Modern Era of Ibanez guitars began in 1957 and since then they have enjoyed incredible success. They continue to experiment with edgy designs and finishes but have never lost track of their roots. Their amazing Artcore line of hollowbodies are some of the most sought after guitars in the world and their RG line is a must have for rock and metal fans alike. And don’t discount their bass guitars, cherished by musicians the world over. This is a company that can do it all. Straight ahead rock models, elegant hollow bodies and everything in between. They even have a nice line of pedals and accessories that pros and amateurs have grown to love. Find out for yourself why some performers won’t play anything else but Ibanez.

What is your opinion of this product?
I've wanted a Jem for as long as I can remember, and it lives up to everything I was expecting. It's light, comfortable, looks great, and plays wonderfully. I generall try to go for something different then what I already have when I pick up a new guitar, but I have no problem with the idea of accumulating multiple Jems in the years to come.

IT'S UNREAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your general opinion of this product.
REALLY LIKE THE FLAT FRET BOARD...GREAT SUSTAIN AND HARMONICS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD. GREAT 24 FRETS THAT REALLLYYYY KICK A** IF YOU LIKE PLAYING AND TAPPING ABOVE 15TH FRET
AMS Responds:
VERY WELL MADE. I USED TO BE A BIG STRAT MAN AND LOVE LES PAULS, BUT THIS BABY HAS EM ALL BEAT. QUALITY OF FINISH IS AMAZING
AMS Responds:
WISH THEY'S ADD A 3 WAY TOGGLE MODEL WITH A SEPARATE VOLUME TOGGLE UP TOP LIKE LES PAULS...THEN YOU'D HAVE A GUITAR THAT'S UNBEATABLE...ALSO OFFER A NORMAL FRET MARKER MODEL. THE "VINE" IS FINE, BUT I PREFER THE INLAYS LIKE ON THE IBAS' 3550.
AMS Responds:
TONE IS GREAT...I PLAY A TON OF HEAVY STUFF WITH A LOT OF TAPPING AND THIS MODEL HAS GREAT SUSTAIN AND A "CLEAN" DISTORTION WHEN NEEDED THAT RIVALS OR EXCEEDS ANY STRAT I'VE GOT.
AMS Responds:
I LIKE THE FLAT, WIDE FRET BOARD. IT'S FAST AND ALLOWS FOR EXCEPTIONAL BENDING...I'VE NEVER HEARD SUSATIN ANY BETTER AND HARMONICS ARE AS GOOD AS ANY GUITAR I'VE EVER PLAYED.
AMS Responds:
IMPECCABLE. HEAD STOCK IS EVEN "PRETTY".
AMS Responds:
TOO EARLY, BUT I'VE GOT MANY IBS AND THEY HAVE ALL HELD UP WELL. STAYS IN TUNE EVEN WITH A TON OF W-BAR ACTION.

Not like they used to be!
For the high price tag, this guitar should have "0" issues. Like I said earlier, My '87 JEM777DY was built better and extremely reliable with a price tag half of the JEM7VWH.
Not very well. It's always hard to tune every time I took it out of the case. When ever I popped the trem bar in, it would go out of tune. So I had to whammy it a few times to get it back to close to being in tune. I had to replace the volume pot. The darn thing froze up on me during a gig. Luckily, it was frozen on the "10" position so I could continue playing. Lost one of the locking nuts screws that bolts to the back of the headstock. It just seemed to delicate for gigging. My old 1987 JEM777DY was more stable and less hassles than the new Team J Craft models.
Your general opinion of this product.
Beautiful and High Quality guitar. But, upon close inspection and use in a live setting was somewhat disappointing.
This was a pretty lite guitar. Good for playing 4 - 45 minute sets. The neck is a little too thin for my preferrence. But, still somewhat comfortable and very fast feeling. The volume knob is a tad too close to the pup for my taste. I kept bumping it and had to bring back to "10".
Very versitle sounding pickups. Creamy to snappy Strat-like to bright PAF grind. I did have a hard time making this guitar sustain and scream. I didn't have that problem with my '87 JEM777DY
The paint job was flawless. Very professional and impressive.
The action was perfect. I love it low and fast.

I have a Jem, nutral finish with pink pickups
I love this guitar. My band mte hated floating bridges, but even he said "Ican't believe how well it stays in tune"
Better than any other i have had
Your general opinion of this product.
This has been the best guitar I have owned. I did send back to Ibanez for work as it would not return to tune after using wammy bar. Tht was 15 years ago and this guitar beats anythibg my band mates bring! Mine is a natural finish, haven't seen another like it!
The guitar is very light, the neck iscgreat I ahve always been a Gison man so I approached this with caution)
Depends on what you play, what you play through, and what pick up.
Sexy
too high, but easily adjusted

Best guitar I've ever played or owned! Love it!
This guitar is solid as a rock. The detail put into it is of course driven by Mr Vai himself so you can't go wrong. I love this neck and the guitar just feels solid without feeling heavy like a Les Paul. Well made through and through.
I've only had it for two weeks but judging on the quality of the build I'm sure it will last.
Your general opinion of this product.
I absolutely love this guitar! The setup was pretty decent although I made some of my own adjustments for my taste and playing style. The neck is so fast and playable, better than any other guitar I have played. The Evolutions are so sweet, the sound cuts through and has a sound like a cross between smooth butter and a razor blade. I love the scalloped frets also. This is a fantastic guitar.
The feel of this guitar is like heaven. The neck is solid and fast. The guitar doesn't feel heavy at all, the balance is perfect. Controls are fine where they are. The added bonus of the slide in trem arm is nice. I can't say enough about the playability and neck of this guitar. I love it!
The pickups are super hot, the Evolutions are so perfect sounding for the styles I play. The definition even when screaming is what really caught my ear. These pickups aren't muddy at all. There really is a very nice balance between the highs, lows and mids. I would like to put Evolutions in all my guitars actually, I think they sound better than any other pickups I've played. The single coil seems a bit low in volume as balanced against the Evo's but that's probably to be expected since they are so hot!
Stain and paint were fine. I think I'd like to get a more exotic JEM next time, gotta save up though, I've seen some really nice paint jobs. But this guitar is very nice and elegant and of course the vine of life is sweet!
Action was fine, I did feel the trem was forward a bit too much, although I've read both that they should be for this unit, but also that it should be parallel to the body. I find it holds tuning better when parallel. The action was just right when I got the guitar. I am going to mod my trem unit though with tremel - no. I personally like having that option and my style generally is just diving and tremolo anyway, so it won't matter to me not pulling up. Plus it's easy to switch between full floating, dive only and fixed so...

Jem is a gem
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
The guitar is a work of art, aesthetically and musically. The quality is truly superb.

FEATURES:
The playability this Jem is amazingly smooth. The action is quick and the pickups are hot making this a "shredder's axe" as well as an angelic tone machine.

EASE OF USE:
Very easy to use....if you know how to play. ;)

VALUE:
Compared to similarly priced guitars (PRS, top line Fenders, etc) this one is the best value. There isn't any sound you can't get from this guitar, from blues to acid metal. This one can make all the scales sing (unlike the others which have great sound, but not as much versatility).

SOUND:
Sound quality is exceptional; it is the selling feature of this guitar for sure.

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
15 years

This is a really awesome axe!
Your general opinion of this product.
The pictures of this axe don't do it justice. For really good pics go to jemsite.com. There aren't very many guitars that have a website dedicated to them as cool as this one. This guitar makes a ton of great tones. A myth about this axe is that you have to heavily process it for good tone. Totally not true! Don't let the price scare you away.
