Availability: In Stock


For sale is a 1991 Ibanez JEM 77DY Desert Yellow Steve Vai . This guitar has been played, but is in very good condition and perfect working order. There are some light scratches and dings on the top. Overall, I would give it a solid 8 out of 10 condition. Everything on the guitar is original. There are no repairs, cracks, or major issues. The neck is straight with no issues. The original frets are in clean condition. The original case works great, but is missing the locking combo latch

The Story of Steve Vai and the Ibanez JEM777 

Steven Siro Vai(born June 6, 1960) is an American guitarist, songwriter and producer who has sold over 15 million albums. After starting his career as a music transcriptionist for Frank Zappa, Vai recorded and toured in Zappa’s band for two years, from 1980 to 1982. He began a solo career in 1983, has released eight solo albums and won three Grammy Awards. He has also recorded and toured with Public Image Ltd., Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake. Vai has been a regular touring member of the G3 Concert Tour G3 which began in 1995. In 1999 Vai started his own record label Favored Nations.

JEM777 is an electric guitar and first produced in 1987. It was revealed at the 1987 summer NAMM Show. The guitar’s most notable user is its co-designer, Steve Vai. So aside from being today’s #1 Rock guitarist, Steve Vai has some very definite ideas about guitar design. After carefully checking the elements that made his favorite guitars work, Steve drew all the best features together into one instrument, unique in both form and function. The features include the “Monkey Grip” handle, the “Disappearing Pyramid” inlays, lions claw and so on. For those who like to know, why they are called JEM and not SV or something like that. Joe Desagni, a friend of Steve Vai owned a company that called JEM guitars that made custom guitars. When naming this guitar, Steve Vai decided to use JEM finally.

The JEM777 was available in three different and, at the time, unique finishes and started the famous Jem-line. Of the Loch Ness Green version(LNG) was the first being produced and only available in 1987, only 777 were made (All signed by Steve Vai). The Desert Sun Yellow version(DY) was produced from 1987 until 1996. The Shocking Pink version(SK) was available from 1987 until 1989. All three have the 3 colours green, yellow and pink in it. And they all share the 3-color pyramid inlay.

Features of the JEM 777DY Guitar1987 JEM777 in Desert Sun Yellow was made for and owned by Steve Vai- customized personal favorite guitar used on David Lee Roth “Skyscraper” tour. Steve Vai gave this away for a children’s hospital charity. On the back, it was Steve Vai’s declaration: “To a worthy cause-this is my personal favorite guitar-Skyscraper ’88- Steve Vai”

The Ibanez JEM 777 DY is beautifully made from the basswood body to the maple neck. They are in accordance with the original JEM777. Although the body is a little heavy it offers lots of resonance giving the guitar very high levels of sustain. It is a totally balanced sound. Neon color combination and look!!! The Ibanez JEM 777 DY has a yellow body and black pickguard, green knobs and pink pickups, switch and lion’s claw. It looks fantastic!
