IBANEZ JEM 7VWH
The Ibanez JEM7V, also known as the JEM7V WH (White), is a JEM series guitar model and signature model of guitarist Steve Vai, introduced in 1993. Features include an alder body, DiMarzio pickups, a double locking tremolo and pearl and abalone vine fingerboard inlays. A thin basswood veneer is applied to the top and back of the body to prevent the finish from settling into the alder wood grain making it appear through the finish.
The JEM7V has gone through several specification changes: the Lo Pro Edge tremolo was replaced with the new Edge Pro in 2003; in 2004 the ebony fingerboard was replaced with a more generic rosewood one; finally in 2005 the JEM7V got a five-ply neck like most Japanese made Ibanez guitars.
From 2002 until 2004 the JEM7V was also available with a sparkle blue finish as the JEM7V SBL.
For 2010 the tremolo is replaced again, this time by the original Edge tremolo. The Edge was introduced in 1986 and has been used for various JEM models, but it is the first time it is featured on the JEM7V.

IBANEZ JEM 7VWH REVIEWS
LIKE NOTHING ELSE 5 STAR
- 15 Jul 2007
The sound is amazing! Those dimarzio evolution pickups are incredible. I have never heard such a powerful crunch in each note that you play. If your looking for a huge boost nothing compares to the jem.
The gold material and the living tree created on the neck is what amazes me the most. These features make the guitar like nothing else out there. Also the tuners are amazing. That guitar seems to never go out of tune. The features are the best Iv'e seen on any other guitar.
Ease of Use:
It's easy because it already comes with a great sound without changing anything on it.
Everything that this guitar is made of is made from the best material out there. Steve vai wouldn't settle for anything less.
The jem is well worth the money that it cost. If your thinking about too much money you have no idea how good this guitar is.
I like the warranty about fixing it within a year but i have to say ibanez doesn't have the nicest people working there.
The Wow Factor:
This is the best looking guitar i have ever seen. Think about what it looks like on the internet and then think 10 times better than that and thats what it looks like in real life.
I don't think I will ever want anything else until i have a chance to make my own guitar. Theres just nothing out like it.

Best guitar I have ever owned
- 15 Feb 2012
Overall this is the best guitar I have ever played and until someone comes up with something better, well........
If you want a great playing, great sounding, FANTASTIC looking ax, then look no further.
This is my 3rd Jem 7(sold one and had one stolen at a gig ). I own 28 guitars right now which include a gibson gold top reissue, 2 custom shop strats, a John Surh rear route, a couple of Epiphones, and a few off brand frankenstien project guitars not to mention my Martin and Taylor acoustics. The Jem 7 blows them all away. Great tone, great playability, very hot output from the EVO pickups, and the looks of the white on gold have no other rivals anywhere. I've been an active playing guitarist for over 34 years playi ng any thing from country to heavy metal and this guitar can do it all(I only wish I had had one of these back in 1978 ).
I've read some of the reviews about the price of the guitar. I really can't see how anyone can say that this fantastic guitar is too pricey when Gibson is selling their guitars for almost double the price of the Jem 7. As I stated earlier I own a Les Paul and paid a lot for it but in my opinion the Jem is the better guitar in all respects. You get what you pay for and this guitar is well worth any price!!! I highly recommend this ax to anyone who has a discerning eye for beauty, a good ear for excellent tone, and the chops to realize what a great player this guitar is.

Best guitar I have ever played Glad I own it!!!!

It may not be made in America but it plays way better than any other new or vintage guitar I have ever played on. The pickups are ridiculously sensitive so you might have to dial them away from the strings a bit. The floyd rose system is perfect. I can pick it up with the tremolo bar and everything is still perfectly in tune. My only problem is that it has to be set up for the string gauge you are using and pretty much just one tuning too but thats what you get with a floyd rose. If you own this guitar and get a good guitar with a fixed bridge you can pretty much play it all!!! Really fun to play!
