Ibanez Jem-Evo 25th Anniversary
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Jem, Ibanez is releasing a limited replica of Steve Vai's personal 'Evo' guitar.

100 guitars will be produced in the Sugi Custom shop, each signed with 'Steve Vai - 1 of 100' by Steve himself.

Each guitar will be spec'd and relic'd as close as possible to the Vai's personal Evo in its current state, right down to a simulated crack in the neck joint.

Each guitar will also include a dirty strap stained with Vai's own sweat and grease.

US list price of $10370.36

It's BEAUTIFUL, but.......too overpriced for us average people...... I wish I could have one......but that's just a dream :D Also, these straps......how is possible, that Steve used them all???

While its kind of cool in a novelty way, I never got into relic'd guitars. You cant buy history. I prefer to beat them up myself.

It's a joke that the author of the Ibanez News blog made (and confessed).

I'd seen the news on the other 25th anniversary models and the Jem 70V, but not this one. Great idea--wonder what the final price will be.
