    Built to the performance requirements of Steve Vai
    Incredible performance is the reason Steve Vai continues to play his Ibanez signature models on tour and in the studio, and the Steve Vai JEM70V doesn't disappoint. The solid basswood body and five-piece Wizard III neck give you sustain that won't quit, and a lively response for excellent note-to-note definition. The JEM70V has the rich, warm tone needed for sultry rhythm work, and you can switch to a full-on biting midrange attack for lead work without missing a beat. It's truly musically versatile, just like Steve Vai.

    Effortless playability, with the fastest-playing neck in the business
    One of Ibanez's fastest necks to date, the 5-piece maple and walnut Wizard III neck on the Steve Vai JEM70V is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords when you need to. From the first time you put your hands on the JEM70V's Wizard III neck, you'll know you've got a guitar that was built with performance in mind.

    Edge tremolo for precise tuning stability
    The JEM70V's Edge tremolo was designed by Ibanez to give you the fast tremolo response and snap you need to pull off sharp bends and flutters. The extreme stability of this knife-edge-style trem's stud lock function is also one of the many reasons its a favorite among many of today's top shredders. And thanks to the Lion's Claw tremolo cavity, you can bend notes to radical extremes and back again with incredible precision.

    I've seen more of those than most will in a life time. They do nothing for me, but I can understand why other love them.

    Sure. That one isn't even God-Awful ugly.

    I'd give it a spin, though it probably wouldn't be my first choice in a super-strat.

    Not a fan of foam green but I'd certainly try it out given the specs.

    No, Ken collects them. I think he has around 35. His are mostly from the 80's. The stranger and uglier the finish the better. Chartreuse, pink, rubber covered, flowers ect.

    At least this one isn't finished with some of Vai's blood added to the paint.

    from the Sweetwater catalog that I received yesterday with a one page add for this guitar.

    i got that damn thing yesterday too. looked at it for 3 minutes and threw it out. i told them not to send me catalogs 3 years ago, that it wasn't worth the wasted paper, and they still do. looks like i won't be buying anything from Sweetwater in 2012.

    It's like a phone book. And just like the phone book I forget about it and look online for what I need anyway.

    I wish he'd get ride of that damn Tree of Life inlay, because otherwise I really like it. If it had the disappearing pyramid ones I'd hit it.

  25. Help!I'maRock! Radical Sandwich Anarchist

    i bought two packs of strings from them 3 years ago and told them not to send me catalogs. they've spent more on me sending catalogs than they've made from me in profit. makes no sense.

    I'm just not a fan of the "sales engineers" calling me.

    I got that catalog, too. All I could think of was "Now Vai is a hands model?"

  31. Kerouac weird musical dildo

    I asked them not to... haven't called me since unless I call them first. My guy (Loop Quantum) from HC has gotten me some pretty good deals over the past few years... saved me a couple of hundred off buying elsewhere, plus Sweetwater shipments normally get here the next day if I order in the morning.

    they're inside salespeople, not customer service reps. as an inside salesperson, i completely understand why they call. and i also understand why people don't like it. i've gotten exactly one additional phone call from them over the three years. i told them not to call again. the rep listened to that. still get wasteful catalogs though.

    They've ignored my request. They just don't call every month now.
