Ibanez Steve Vai JEM70V Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Built to the performance requirements of Steve Vai
  • Effortless playability, with the fastest-playing neck in the business
  • Edge tremolo for precise tuning performance

Built to the performance requirements of Steve Vai
Incredible performance is the reason Steve Vai continues to play his Ibanez signature models on tour and in the studio, and the Steve Vai JEM70V doesn’t disappoint. The solid basswood body and five-piece Wizard III neck give you sustain that won’t quit, and a lively response for excellent note-to-note definition. The JEM70V has the rich, warm tone needed for sultry rhythm work, and you can switch to a full-on biting midrange attack for lead work without missing a beat. It’s truly musically versatile, just like Steve Vai.

Effortless playability, with the fastest-playing neck in the business
One of Ibanez’s fastest necks to date, the 5-piece maple and walnut Wizard III neck on the Steve Vai JEM70V is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords when you need to. From the first time you put your hands on the JEM70V’s Wizard III neck, you’ll know you’ve got a guitar that was built with performance in mind.

Edge tremolo for precise tuning stability
The JEM70V’s Edge tremolo was designed by Ibanez to give you the fast tremolo response and snap you need to pull off sharp bends and flutters. The extreme stability of this knife-edge-style trem’s stud lock function is also one of the many reasons its a favorite among many of today’s top shredders. And thanks to the Lion’s Claw tremolo cavity, you can bend notes to radical extremes and back again with incredible precision.
