Few would debate Steve's tremendous influence on Ibanez guitars.
Innovations from the guitars created by Steve and Ibanez designers
can be found in so many of their instruments, from pro through
entry level. Then there's Steve Vai's Universe, the guitar that
ignited the 7-string revolution in rock.
When Steve Vai guitars, with their lightening Edge tremolos,
lightning fast 2-octave necks, and beautifully sculpted bodies came
out in 1987, they were cutting edge. In the new millennium, they're
still cutting edge. And that's the mark of a true classic.
Contoured Alder body with 24-fret JEM neck provides easy access to
all registers. Alder is best 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.
Deep routed tremolo cavities allow pitches to be raised or lowered
6105 frets are a high but thin fret with perfect intonation, good
control, and easy playability and "no choking" string bending
