Steve Vai’s signature guitars have become almost as iconic as the player himself, and now that mojo is more attainable than ever with the Ibanez JEMJRSP Steve Vai Signature. From the acrylic Tree of Life inlay to the instantly recognizable “monkey grip” handle, there’s no doubt where the JEMJRSP came from. For tonal tenacity, you get two Infinity humbuckers and one Infinity single-coil pickup complete with 5-way switching. Factor in the double-locking tremolo bridge, and the JEMJRSP is ready to wail.
One of Ibanez’s fastest necks to date, the Wizard III neck on the JEMJRSP Steve Vai Signature is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lightning-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but it still gives you the substance you need for grabbing chords when you need to. From the first time you put your hands on the JEMJRSP’s Wizard III neck, you’ll know you’ve got a guitar that was built with performance in mind.
The HSH configuration has been a longtime favorite among tone seekers, and this preference led to the trio of killer Infinity pickups loaded in the JEMJRSP Steve Vai Signature. The neck position ceramic humbucker is voiced for warmer, richer tone, while the Alnico V bridge humbucker is a brilliant lead pickup: vibrant yet snarling with an enhanced midrange output when you push it. In between, you get a high-output single-coil that serves up traditional spank ’n’ sparkle on its own and plays nice with the humbuckers in blade positions two and four. If you’re after maximum tonal tenacity, then the JEMJRSP will give your amplifier what you need.
The JEMJRSP Steve Vai Signature packs Ibanez’s standard double-locking bridge, which helps you maintain your tuning stability even after heavy pitch bends. Guitarists at Sweetwater know that a whammy bar is only fun when your guitar stays in tune, and a double-locking bridge goes a long way toward achieving that goal.
