About Ibanez Jem Jr

The Ibanez Jem Jr is a fun and affordable version of Steve Vai's now infamous Ibanez Jem Signature model. Built to allow greater access to the design with a lower price point. The Ibanez Jem Jr features many design aspects that keep it looking iconic, such as the monkey grip, tree of life inlay, and the lion's claw tremolo routing. The body is still made from basswood like all Ibanez JEM guitars with a slim Wizard III maple neck that allows you to effortlessly fly up and down the fingerboard. The versatile pickup configuration allows you to quickly get close to Steve Vai's tone and with the double locking tremolo you can even match the spectacular whammy bar effects Mr. Vai makes use of.

The Ibanez Jem Jr is a great representation of what made Ibanez such a giant in the guitar industry, quality and affordable instruments built for demanding players. With a range of colours from white to yellow and even pink, these guitars really capture an 80's vibe with a fresh and inspiring look that just begs you to pick up and play.
