In an effort to make the JEM available to a broader fan base, Ibanez has released the JEMJRL, providing more affordable access to the magic that is the JEM. And now the left-handed version follows.
Featuring a mahogany body attached to a Wizard III neck, the JEMJRL offers many of the JEM’s distinguishing characteristics; the H/S/H pickup configuration, the “Tree of Life” inlay, a double locking tremolo system, and of course, the famous Monkey grip and Lion's Claw tremolo cavity.
When Steve Vai teamed up with Ibanez in 1987, little did he realize what a lasting impact his signature model guitar would have. Today, the JEM is an iconic instrument immediately identified with the legendary guitarist. Famous for its distinctive look and innovative design, time has seen this popular, upscale guitar become the most counterfeited model in the world.
