Get Your Hands on Steve Vai's Axe!

This extremely limited edition Ibanez JEM-EVO electric guitar is your chance to own a perfect replica of Steve Vai's number-one axe, Evo, the guitar that launched the JEM series. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the JEM, Ibanez's Sugi Custom shop has created 100 limited-edition recreations of Vai's original Evo. The JEM-EVO LTD gives you the exact specifications of the original Evo, plus it's been relic'd to match to Vai's own guitar perfectly, right down to a simulated crack at the neck joint. Short of the original, nothing comes close to the Ibanez JEM-EVO LTD. Get yours from Sweetwater before they're gone!

A spot-on recreation of Steve Vai's original Evo

When Steve Vai originally came up with the design for the guitar that would become the Ibanez JEM, he already had a fair amount of experience tweaking guitars to get the sound and feel he wanted. In fact, the JEM was the combination of everything Steve Vai really wanted in a guitar. The clarity of its lightweight alder body, the easy action of its maple neck, the massive range of tone of its DiMarzio Evolution pickups, and (of course) the "monkey grip" all add up to one amazing tone machine. And with this perfectly relic'd Limited Edition JEM-EVO, you get to experience this combination the way Vai himself does. There's nothing else quite like playing an Ibanez JEM-EVO LTD.

Numbered, certified, and signed by Steve Vai

Did you know that back in 1986, when Ibanez handed Steve Vai the original JEM prototype, the first thing he did was to disassemble and reassemble it, so he could personally inspect the craftsmanship. Talk about an eye for detail! That's why there's something just a bit more special about Steve Vai's signature on this Limited Edition JEM-EVO electric guitar. When you take home your JEM-EVO LTD, you can be sure this guitar is as close to the original as possible.

Heavyweight freight case included

It may sound like overkill, but you're going to love the case Ibanez packed your Limited Edition JEM-EVO guitar in. That's because Ibanez wants to be absolutely sure this precious guitar will be safe and sound, no matter where you take it. Consider it a kind of insurance policy for your JEM-EVO LTD, a guitar that's sure to become even more valuable with age.
