The iconic body style of the JEMJR guitar is carved from mahogany, and features the JEM trademark “monkey grip” cut near the upper horn, along with a white finish. Steve Vai prefers the metal industry standard H-S-H schematic for maximized tonal versatility. The JEM JR features a trio of Ibanez Infinty pickups. The humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions feature ceramic magnets that reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbucking pickups. The single coil pickup in the middle delivers a more traditional tone.  The simplified controls include a master volume, master tone, and a 5-way switch providing endless tonal variations and slabs of explosive tone.

The Ibanez JEMJR also gives you an ultra-thin fast-playing maple neck, carved to Mr. Vai’s exacting specs. Steve Vai has always been partial to slim neck profiles that maximize ease of playability and enable him to play at blazing velocity. The 24-fret JEM neck boasts an extremely flat 15.74” radius, and a jatoba fretboard adorned with Steve Vai’s “Tree of Life” inlay.

The Ibanez double-locking  tremolo system makes tuning easier and faster as well as providing stable tuning that will withstand long performances, all while maintaining smooth tremolo playing. Loss of tuning is kept to a minimum, even through aggressive dive-bomb licks or when a string breaks.  Case not included.

I would recommend it to a friend


I loved this guitar. It was my first guitar with a Floyd rose it was amazing.



Worth getting one


One of the best guitars i've played in a long time.



The Steve Via Classic at a bargain price!


The most classic body shape to come out of the 80's is now in a very cost effective package. Even though the name makes is sound like a mini guitar, the Jem Jr. is a tone monster with all of the feel of its big brother at a fraction of the price. The Hot Pink color is amazing in person. it really will make you stand out from the crowd. The pickup configuration will give you great clean Fender like tones and searing leads for days. Plus who doesn't love the Floyd Rose for cool tremolo tricks. This is a great guitar and its not just for metal of progressive rock.
