IBANEZ JEM-JR (Steve Vai) - Electric Guitar (PRE-ORDER)
Steve Vai is a virtuoso guitarist, visionary composer, and consummate producer who sculpts musical sound with infinite creativity and technical mastery. At age 12, he started taking guitar lessons from Joe Satriani. At 18, he began his professional musical career transcribing for, and then playing with, the legendary Frank Zappa. More than three decades, 15-million in album sales, and three GRAMMY Awards later, Vai has proven himself, in his own right, one of music's true originals.
The JEM-JR is an affordable alternative for those seeking to emulate Vai's tone and feel.
