Ibanez Steve Vai Signature JEM777 30th Anniversary:
The legend is back! The Ibanez JEM777 is the first JEM series of Steve Vai’s signature model. 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. Ibanez is very pleased to celebrate this 30-year milestone in the ever-evolving and fruitful collaboration with Steve Vai.
The JEM777 was available in three different colours over several periods: Loch Ness Green (LNG) (1987), Desert Sun Yellow (DY) (1987–1996), and Shocking Pink (SK) (1987–1989). The year 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of JEM series. Ibanez proudly revives the classic JEM777 with updated specs and celebrates its anniversary. As featured in the original JEM777, the body is solid basswood with a fat but well-balanced tonality, including the JEM’s symbolic feature: the “Monkey Grip” handle. The slim JEM 5-piece maple/walnut neck is jointed with a metal plate including the 30th anniversary logo. The neck joint is traditional, but the Tilt-Neck Joint offers easy upper fret access. The maple fretboard has a Scalloped Fingerboard on 21–24 frets, and the Disappearing Pyramid inlay is colored in green, yellow, and pink. The Edge tremolo, with an Ultralite Tremolo Arm™ and Lion’s Claw cavity, ensures stable tuning and radical tremelo effects. The DiMarzio® Evolution® pickups are the main factors in giving the JEM series its unique sound. The JEM777 also uses DiMarzio® Evolution® humbuckers in its bridge and neck positions, and a DiMarzio® Evolution® single coil in its middle position for a wide array of rock tones. A 30th anniversary plate is attached inside of the hard-shell case. A green multi-tool mirroring the JEM777’s image colour, a certificate of authenticity, and a strap are included.
It is believed that only 900 worldwide of these were produced; 450 green and 225 each of pink and yellow.
FACTORY NEW - IBANEZ JEM 30TH ANNIVERSARY 777LNG
A LITTLE ABOUT THE GUITAR
The first thing you'll notice is the bright neon finish that's as big and bold as Steve Vai's guitar playing! This limited colour looks like it's come straight out of the 80s but with all of the modern treatment that'll make this one rocking guitar.
A Little Bit Different
There are a few key tweaks that have been made to this guitar that make it a different beast than you may be used to out of the Steve Vai series. The maple fretboard on top of a 5 piece maple/walnut neck matches the American basswood body well to create an acoustic sound that is focused and bright. To make sure it doesn't get too bright when running through your amplifier this model has the DiMarzio Evolution in the neck and bridge position. These pickups are fierce and bright with loads of low-end punch to cover any style of music.
Hardware That Lasts
At no point in their range do Ibanez skimp out on the hardware. From the 6105 frets that have been finished with Ibanez's Prestige fret edge treatment that rounds the edges for smoother playing, to the Edge tremolo every part of this guitar has been meticulously chosen. This means that you can rely on this guitar night after night.
