The JEM77WDP is not the first guitar born of a collaboration between Steve Vai and Ibanez. This new model combines a stunning visual aesthetic and a powerful range of tones for the ultimate playing experience. This new JEM comes in a unique Charcoal Brown Low Gloss finish with some excellent appointments and features that make it stand out from other guitars.
The JEM77WDP has a body constructed of mahogany accompanied by a rosewood top, and of course it has the quirky Steve Vai "monkey grip". The slender double cutaway body allows for easy reach to the higher registers of the neck while providing total playing comfort. The pairing of mahogany and rosewood assists in projecting a powerful tone, just as you might expect from an Ibanez.
A five-piece maple / walnut neck is firmly joined to the body and shaped to the superior Wizard profile. The 25.5 inch scale length neck is topped with a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, offering 24 jumbo frets. The neck is given the Premium fret edge treatment too, promoting slick, fast playability while it is simultaneously reinforced by KTS titanium rods. Decorating the fingerboard is a wonderfully unique "Tree of Life" inlay to guide you along.
A set of three DiMarzio Dark Matter 2 pickups are fitted to the JEM77WDP guitar; one in each pickup position. This Steve Vai signature model can access a full, diverse range of tones, made even easier by the addition of Master Volume and Tone controls and the 5-way pickup switch.
The JEM77WDP is equipped with a responsive Edge-Zero II locking tremolo bridge, allowing you to experiment with the dive and wail effects available to you without going out of tune. The body is complemented by cosmo black hardware and protected by a neat wooden pickguard to complete the Charcoal Brown Low Gloss finish. Ibanez also include a hardshell case to keep the guitar looked after and in top condition for years to come.
