Ibanez JEMJRSP-YE Steve Vai Signature JEM Junior, Yellow
Ibanez JEMJRSP-YE Steve Vai Signature JEM Junior Overview by GAK:
The 1987 Chicago NAMM Show marked the introduction of the Steve Vai-designed JEM guitars and constituted a major turning point in the fortunes of Ibanez and the development of the electric guitar. The JEM, with its cutting edge floating tremolo and monkey grip, took off like a rocket. Ibanez was finally viewed as an important innovator and there would be no looking back. 30 years later, the JEM has become an iconic image in the world of guitar and, for over a decade, its sister model, the RG, is second in worldwide sales only to the Fender Stratocaster.
So 2015 saw the introduction of the JEMJR/Jem Junior in White. Featuring a Mahogany body attached to a Wizard III neck, the JEMJR 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. And now available in two of the famous finishes inspired by the legendary JEM777, eye-catching Pink and Yellow!
