There are only 100 Ibanez JEM-EVO guitars being made - each one a hand-crafted
replica of Steve Vai’s own legendary guitar - issued to commemorate the guitarist’s
25 year association with the company. Now, for the first time, Ibanez is also
offering a more affordable version of the Vai masterpiece, the JEM70V. iGuitar
was privileged to be loaned one of the only two JEM-EVOs coming to the UK.
We also borrowed a JEM 70V to compare the two. Tom Quayle put them side by
side and let them shoot it out!

60 Guitar Interactive Magazine Issue 12
Before teaming-up with Ibanez to produce the
JEM series of guitars, Steve Vai was using typical
‘80s super-strats like Charvels and Jacksons.
He often customised these early instruments
with modifications to the whammy bar cavity,
scalloped the upper frets and added deeper
cutaways for easier access. Once his career began
to take off a few years later, it was inevitable that
such a stunning player would be snapped-up by
a major guitar brand and the honour, when it
came, went to Japanese guitar masters, Ibanez.
Thus, the Ibanez JEM was born in 1987 and
it certainly didn’t disappoint, being the perfect
accompaniment to Steve’s radical and creative
technique featuring all of the innovations that
Vai had attempted on his previous guitars,
