Ibanez JEM77 Steve Vai Bad Horsie Signature Electric Guitar Rock Mirror

Ibanez JEM77 Steve Vai Bad Horsie Signature Electric Guitar Rock Mirror

Named Bad Horsie after Vai's song of the same name (off the Alien Love Secrets album), the Ibanez JEM77 Steve Vai Bad Horsie Signature Electric Guitar features a super-flash rock mirror finish with matching mirror pickguard. It also has the signature Monkey Grip handle carved into the basswood body, a scooped tremolo cavity, 5-piece maple/walnut JEM Prestige neck, 25-1/2" scale, Edge Pro bridge/tremolo, and DiMarzio Breed pickups.

Ibanez JEM7V Steve Vai Signature Electric Guitar White

Ibanez JEM7V Steve Vai Signature Electric Guitar White

The Ibanez JEM7V Steve Vai Signature Electric Guitar is a top-of-the-line 6-string solidbody capable of exploring the most extreme sonic territories at any speed. The 5-piece maple/walnut neck is super-smooth for easy riffing and incredibly strong and stable with a lead-friendly thin and flat profile. A 25-1/2" scale and bolt-on neck joint get you lots of bass and treble response with a quick, precise attack. A 43mm nut provides comfortable string spacing and 24 jumbo frets deliver greater range while the recessed tremolo provides right-hand playing comfort and allows notes to be radically raised as well as lowered. The alder body produces clear, full-bodied vintage tone that serves all your needs from chunky rhythms to searing leads. A trio of screaming DiMarzio Evolution pickups (humbuckers at the neck and bridge with a custom single-coil in the mid position), coupled with Split-5 wiring give you all the tonal diversity you crave. And of course, there's Vai's signature Monkey Grip on the bass-side body wing.Alder bodyBest known as the body wood for the classic single coil, bolt on neck guitar, alder produces clear, full bodied vintage tone that works well for lead or rhythm work.Rosewood fingerboardRosewood offers a strong, bright sound and an attractive appearance with a long grain.DiMarzio Evolution humbuckersThe Evolution neck and bridge humbuckers are the result of 2 years of research to come up with...



Ibanez UV777 Electric Guitar Black

Ibanez UV777 Electric Guitar Black

As astounding now as it was when it came out, Steve Vai's Universe cuts no corners on tone or looks. Abalone disappearing pyramid fret marker inlays; a mirror pickguard; Vai's "Light without Heat" pyramid logo below the bridge; plus full body, neck, and head binding provide staggeringly fabulous looks. A double-locking Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge 7 recessed trem lets you dip and soar with flawless intonation. DiMarzio Blaze humbuckers at the neck and bridge provide chunky rhythm and dense lead tones while a Blaze single coil in the middle provides brighter, edgier highlights. Basswood body and quartersawn maple neck. 24 fat frets times seven strings on the rosewood board adds up to a Universe of freedom for your fingers.



DiMarzio DP215 Evo 2 Bridge Pickup Black Regular

DiMarzio DP215 Evo 2 Bridge Pickup Black Regular

The original Evolution bridge guitar pickup did exactly what Steve Vai wanted it to do: kick butt and produce serious scream. The Evo 2 DP215 bridge pickup was designed to be more complex - the same basic tone with increased headroom and dynamics, so that the sound kills on 10 and cleans up when the volume is rolled down. With a little less power than the original Evolution, Evo 2 balances perfectly with the Evolution neck model and performs equally well with high gain and vintage amps.



Amps

Steve plays through his Carvin head and cabinet along with a Fender Dual Pro Combo. His cabinet is loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s.

Celestion Vintage 30 Speaker 8 ohm

Celestion Vintage 30 Speaker 8 ohm

The Celestion Vintage 30 Speaker recreates the sound of the original Celestion Blue with new cone and new coil assembly. Improved performance: rated at 60W capability, handles extra heat generated by higher power equipment. The Vintage 30 handles massive overdrive tones with ease. A classic 4 x 12 loudspeaker.



Steve blends a Dual Pro into his Carvin sound. The Dual Pro is no longer in production; this will get you there.

Fender Twin Amp 100-Watt All-Tube Guitar Amp

We're talking 100% tube signal path running 100 huge watts. We're talking classic Fender tone with tube reverb and tremolo. A pair of the same 12" Eminence speakers found on the '65 Twin Reverb crank out bell-like tones from the Blackface-style normal channel and thick, bold lead sounds from the overdrive channel. 1/4-power switch lets you cook without blasting the walls down. Effects loop and 4-button footswitch included.
