ITS HERE! The Holy Grail of 7VWH’s for those looking for that Ebony fretboard, in all our years dealing in Jems we have not come across a better Ebony. Virtually Mint condition, the perfect collectors example of this iconic and original design of the 7vwh! If you have been looking at getting yourself an original Ebony 7VWH then this is an outstanding opportunity to own one of the rarest and the very best 7vwh they ever made.
The ebony fretboard Jem is arguably one of the very best Jem 7VWHs ever, created out of the Fuji-Gen company in Japan and is now becoming ever more rare since they discontinued this perfect combination in 2003. Ebony is still the preferred choice of Steve Vai who still uses this to this day and the fretboard of choice for the iconic “Flo” guitar. Unfortunately the fretboard was discontinued in 2003 when Ibanez switched to using cheaper but more readily available rosewood fretboards. The Ebony fretboard also allows the guitar to travel without the need for CITES permits and can therefore cross borders without additional documentation or delay! A huge bonus for future resale value!
This 7VWH features the very best Low Pro Edge. This is a stunning example made in 1999, the Ebony fretboard is remarkable to see and play with a high quality finish unlike any other VWH. Other features of this particular VWH of this periodare the Exceptional evolution pickups and 1 piece Maple neck and the original “JEM” neck profile. In most collectors books the period between 1993-2001 was the pinnacle of the 7VWH and you can claim your pass to guitar heaven right here.
Extraordinary 1999 Ebony Ibanez Jem 7VWH
THE EBONY 7VWH HISTORY
The JEM's groundbreaking Lion's Claw tremolo cavity allows pitches to be radically raised or lowered without obstruction.
One of the most recognisable features on the fantastic JEM7V: Steve Vai's signature monkey grip. Crank your amp up, grab that baby and hold on for dear life.
The Tree of Life inlay is a signature feature of the JEM's storied past.
Steve Vai's Signature JEM7V features DiMarzio® Evolution® humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions and a DiMarzio® Evolution® single coil in the middle position for a wide array of rock tones.
You struggle to find a Jem 7VWH like this anywhere else and quite simply, pre 2003 models don’t come up very . Don't miss out on this opportunity to get your hands on one at a fraction of the cost!
This was the last of the jem 7vwh series to feature the exceptional Jem series neck.

REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS
About the Jem 7VWH Specifications/reviews
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.
