“It’s stunning to me that the Jem is celebrating 30 successful years of it’s life. It’s quite an honor for both myself and Ibanez,” says guitar guru Steve Vai. “Who would have thunk that a dayglo skinned guitar with a hand holding monkey grip would have such legs! Still, to this day when I pick up my Jem I feel that school boy excitement as my hands caress it and it speaks to me the resonating vocabulary of my inner secrets.”
