The Story of Steve Vai and JEM777
Steven Siro Vai(born June 6, 1960) is an American guitarist, songwriter and producer who has sold over 15 million albums.

Vai has been a regular touring member of the G3 Concert Tour G3 which began in 1995. In 1999 Vai started his own record label Favored Nations.The JEM777 is an electric guitar manufactured by Ibanez and first produced in 1987. It was revealed at the 1987 summer NAMM Show.The guitar's most notable user is its co-designer, Steve Vai. So aside from being today’s #1 Rock guitarist, Steve Vai has some very definite ideas about guitar design.After carefully checking the elements that made his favorite guitars work, Steve drew all the best features together into one instrument, unique in both form and function. The features include the “Monkey Grip” handle, inlays, lions claw and so on. For those who like to know, why they are called JEM and not SV or something like that. Joe Desagni, a friend of Steve Vai owned a company that called JEM guitars that made custom guitars. When naming this guitar, Steve Vai decided to use JEM finally.
Features of Our JEM777VBK
JEM777VBK belongs to JEM777 Series. It was produced from 1988 to 1992. It had been used by steve vai on several songs from Passion & Warfare, and also on Late Night with David Letterman's 10th Anniversary Special; in January '92, when Steve performed Like A Rolling Stone with Bob Dylan and an all-star band.Our Steve Vai JEM 777 VBK is beautifully made from the basswood body to the maple neck. Besides, the maple or rosewood fretboard is available as the original JEM777VBK fretboard. They are in accordance with the original JEM777. Although the body is a little heavy it offers lots of resonance giving the guitar very high levels of sustain. It is a totally balanced sound. Our Steve Vai JEM 777 VBK has a black finish that's highlighted with awesome looking green plastic parts, as well as a fluorescent vine inlay with green leafs. It looks fantastic.
Another feature of our JEM777 is the famous lion's claw, which we did as the same with theoriginal guitar. The lion's claw is the space under the tremolo. Although the claw itself is just cosmetic, the space under the tremolo makes it possible to pull the tremolo as much as a 5th. The original JEM777 have 2 humbuckers and 1 single coil. We have duplicated it as well. Together with the special 5-way switch, they give a beautiful tone to the guitar when it comes to playing metal or hard rock as the pickups offer an excellent bass and treble response allowing you to get the perfect sound for those crunching, muted chords.
