JEM777SK - The guitars everybody has known were coming. I never thought they would reissue these guitar, but they have. They are a modern version with 5 piece long heel [no fretboard extension] necks and have EVO pickups per Steves specs, as well as Backstops installed. The neck plate laser engraved 30TH Anniversary. If they haven't changed the color [it was being discussed and I argued to leave it like this], the SK is more modern than the original, very rich and more in the magenta range. Very pretty in person. I will get a final number at the show but as of a couple months ago there were a total of 900 guitars total planned with half of them being LG, the rest split between SK and DY.

SOLD OUT!

ALL PICTURES WERE SHOT IN THE SAME CASE, JUST CHANGING OUT THE GUITARS. THIS IS A TRANSITION YEAR AND SOME OF THEM HAVE 2016 MANUALS WHILE THE MAJORITY HAVE 2017 MANUALS, JUST TO STATE BECAUSE THE SAME CASE AND CANDY WAS USED, THE MANUAL MAY OR MAY NOT BE DIFFERENT. ALL THE REST WILL BE THE SAME.

I SHOT ALL THE PICS WITHOUT FLASH TO SHOW THE GRAIN OF THE MAPLE BETTER. I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE TAKEN MORE SHOTS WITH FLASH AS I DID WITH THE DY AND SK BODY SHOTS BECAUSE THE FLASH REALLY SHOWS THE STRENGTH OF THE COLOR LOST WITHOUT IT.

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EACH WILL BE THE GRAIN OF THE MAPLE, AND THE TOLERANCE OF THE NECK POCKET. MOST ARE VERY GOOD, SOME WERE A LITTLE LOOSE. ANY I CONSIDERED LOOSE ENOUGH TO WARRANT I SHOT PICS OF BOTH SIDES OF THE NECK POCKET TO ILLUSTRATE. ALSO AS TYPICAL WITH SOME THE CURVES ON THE MONKEY GRIP CAN GET A LITTLE FLAT ON THE SIDES, I SHOUT PICS OF ANY FOUND.

It all started in 1987. At the summer Chicago NAMM show, Steve Vai’s signature JEM guitars were first introduced—and Vai’s endorsement with Ibanez was officially announced. This unconventional design immediately became the most recognizable signature model in the world, and it has been loved in its various versions until now. 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the legendary JEM guitars. To commemorate this occasion, Ibanez is proud to release the JEM777, reproducing the features of the very first JEM model in an eye-catching, flashy finish.

The JEM777 is crafted with a Basswood body for a fat but well-balanced tonality. The slim JEM 5pc Maple/Walnut neck includes Jumbo frets finished with the Prestige fret edge treatment for smooth, comfortable performance. A Maple fretboard features characteristic Disappearing Pyramid inlays and scalloped 21–24 frets. The JEM777 is equipped with DiMarzio® Evolution® humbuckers in its bridge and neck positions and a DiMarzio® Evolution® single coil in its middle position for an array of rock tones. The JEM777 will let you scream or moan with the Edge tremolo bridge, Ultralite Tremolo Arm™ and groundbreaking Lion’s Claw tremolo cavity, allowing pitches to be radically raised or lowered without obstruction. A Certificate of Authenticity (Tour Pass) and hardshell case are included.
