Unique Body

This stunning new model from the Steve Vai range features a mahogany body accompanied by a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, offering high-quality tonewoods with an eye-catching grain. A signature 'monkey grip' is incorporated into the guitar's design and adds to its unique appearance.

Angled Headstock & Wizard III Neck

The use of Ibanez's own Wizard III neck provides an extremely playable performance optimised for lead guitarists. The thin nature of the neck helps perform swift and nimble guitar runs seamlessly whilst retaining enough substance to ensure a thick and full resonance when playing rhythm patterns and chords. The angled headstock not only provides a stylish appearance, but also offers better string pressure. By increasing the pressure on the strings, it helps them stay in the nut slots and decreases loss of string vibration between the nut and the tuners, offering better sustain and smooth playability.

Quantum Pickups

Steve Vai’s Signature guitar features a set of Quantum pickups in a HSH configuration, providing a wide range of tonal possibilities to suit different musical styles. In the neck and bridge positions are Quantum humbuckers, with both offering full, clean tones while the bridge has a higher output and an excellent dynamic response. The middle pickup is a Quantum single coil, providing warm tones with a strong punch and a clean treble response.
