2005 Ibanez J Craft JEM7V Steve Vai Signature White w/ Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2005 Ibanez J Craft JEM7V Steve Vai signature model in 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original molded hardshell case. Crafted in Japan at the Fujigen factory as part of Ibanez’s top-tier J Craft series, the JEM7V is a discontinued model featuring an alder body with a basswood veneer and monkey grip, a maple neck, and a slab 24 fret rosewood fretboard with Tree of Life inlay and scalloping on the last four frets.

The HSH pickup array includes DiMarzio Evolution humbuckers and a centrally located Evolution single coil, designed for maximum impact, power, and versatility. The neck pickup is fat and punchy, while the bridge is tight and aggressive. Both pickups have DiMarzio’s dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers, while their excellent presence and definition help slice through the densest mix. With five-way switching and the ability to pair the single coil with either humbucker for greater clarity and top-end snap, this JEM has a broad tonal spectrum, ideal for singing high gain or pristine, complex-sounding cleans. Weighing 7lbs 10oz, this JEM7V has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, slinky action, and spot-on intonation.
