The Ibanez JIVA10 is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2018. It is a Signature guitar of American guitarist Nita Strauss. Strauss is known for her work with the all-female Iron Maiden tribute band The Iron Maidens and as a guitarist for Alice Cooper. The JIVA10 is Strauss's first signature guitar and the first signature guitar Ibanez has produced for a female artist.

"I’ve been designing my signature guitar in my head since I started playing guitar- and the JIVA is that dream come to life. From the tone woods to the sleek design to the incredibly versatile sounds, this guitar is everything I've ever wanted!" - Nita Strauss

The JIVA10 is based on the S series. It features a quilted maple top with binding on a mahogany body bolted to a maple and purpleheart neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and "Beaten Path" EKG-style inlays. Components include an Edge Zero II double locking tremolo bridge and DiMarzio pickups with a pair of custom humbuckers (which Strauss describes as a cross between a D-Activator and an Evolution) flanking a True Velvet single-coil.

Biography

Los Angeles born guitarist Nita Strauss has become a force to be reckoned with in the music world, dazzling audiences across the US, UK, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa, and sharing the stage with a diverse range of artists including rock legend Alice Cooper, R&B star Jermaine Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens.

Her skill, exuberant stage presence and love for all things about her instrument have earned her a stellar reputation and endorsements from many top companies. Nita has been featured in many worldwide print magazines and on dozens of albums, trailers, and soundtracks, including Heroes Of The Storm (Blizzard) and Grammy-nominated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Konami/ Platinum Games); and is the author of the Guitar World magazine monthly column "Like a Hurricane." Nita was also the official in-house guitarist for the LA KISS, the arena football team owned by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS.

In 2018, Nita became the first ever female to become a signature artist with Ibanez guitars. Her signature guitar, the Ibanez JIVA, will hit stores in the summer of 2018. She also launched a signature set of DiMarzio Pandemonium pickups.

Nita is one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry today and has done extensive clinic tours across multiple continents. Her consistent touring schedule has led her to play hundreds of shows a year, in front of over a million audience members every year.

Nita is currently playing guitar for Alice Cooper and her bands We Start Wars and The Starbreakers, and working on her debut solo record, Controlled Chaos.

    Hands down the best guitar I've played in a long time; even with a 4 figure price-tag the Jiva is a bargain! The pandemonium pickups are incredible and the best example I've heard of that truly buck the hum. The neck is fast but not too thin that it runs away with you. The weight of the guitar makes it incredibly comfortable to play for hours and hours and it sits comfortably in a classic position, on a strap and on the right leg Nita and Ibanez created a truly incredible guitar here - kudos and thankyou to both of them
