Configuration: HSH


As its image the handle slides alone; I have several guitars, and it made me a little scared about the tree of life benchmark level but ultimately it is happiness!
For the weight it is super lightweight and easy to carry thanks to its handle "monkey grip" it seems virtually a toy ...
The sound is perfect level humbuckers (in the neck position is not far from a good Strat and at Chavalet well it sends the potato something good, it is not too rough or sharp as on the active EMG style!) Brief magic ...
By flat against medium single level because I not find it very interesting too flat in my opinion ... but not bad either anyway!
Floyd is perfect I think it may well be the heckling without the guitar does not move a muscle! (Good to see after it's been a month since I ...)


I play with a Fender head Supercontrol X2 2x12 mounted V30 and a Marshall JVM410H with a 4x12 1960A thus.
2 heads do not have the same use, but it is doing very well; it can be sweet as devastating it adapts to all styles even if I'm Heavy Metal ...
Anyway I have not tried her big sister but I was expecting worse following the reviews on the net! Finish there's nothing wrong it is SUPERB and it sounds like hell!


To conclude it's a very short time I have but I do not regret my purchase vraimment to see how it will age (if I care ... I often change gear!)
It is in the 1000/1300 euros new but well worth without problem ...
Go for it is up to the expectations ...

lionel alonso's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez JEM70V Premium
Channel and feature guitar made in Indonesia.
24 frets non scaloppées, microphones are authentic Dimarzio Evolution.


This is an Ibanez Jem, everything is said. Very nice, absolute comfort. Access to acute is as good as all the jems and its coming fast and well. Guitar very responsive. It was quite appropriate for professional use, the evidence Steve Vai uses in his last tour and it is the Indonesian model. It is marked on the back of the head having been able to get very close.
With other jem japan some 80's I certify that this jem is excellent for the price.


This guitar suits many styles except maybe funk and jazz. It is not perfect for casseroles funkies but for the rest it's fabulous. This is a jem jem and sings. This is not a guitar shred, shred the play on Suhr, Tom Anderson, esp, etc. caparison more about jem. Now with a jem it is a old school guitarist, and that's cool!

The sounds are clear and precise, as are double potato is there. When I reconnect my strat I have to go back behind the amp volume.


I've had a few weeks, it has become my main guitar. I have tried many premium RG and Jem japan before I start. I have a lot of older models with a lot of value but it has its place perfectly.
I loved the value for money, we completely close a current Japan almost 3x more expensive, I think it is not getting enough attention to it.
The green is fantastic, it goes back to the 50s, month flashy as roses and yellow ... It is very classy and understated.
This is one of the best guitars in this price today, really exceptional guitar. And as much more beautiful in real life.

Ibanez JEM70V Premium
Ibanez Steve Vai Signature superstrate made in Indonesia (Premium Factory)
Channel 24 frets, 5 piece maple / walnut, jumbo frets, rosewood fingerboard
American Mahogany body (room number?)
Pro Edge Floyd
Micro Di Marzio Evolution
Compared to the prestige it has no pearl inlay on the handle, the tree of life is just painted not plated, cells from 21 to 24 are not scallopées, the radius of the handle instead of 400mn of 430mn, freight rates are not W/6105
For info on JEM77 was a joint handle / profile body types Wahsburn Nuno, the JEM7V the white model is not in Mahogany and Alder




Its sounds like a Vai that is very clean cut to the Shred, it lacks potato still requires an amp built for it, the fans for the master uses a Carvin Legacy here we are with that top, in a Fender, Vox vintage amp or another way it sounds ... with a kind Vox pedal or Ibanez Jemini Satchurator with a good delay OK here we come to fill the vacuum it gets interesting in the Lead channel, for the rhythm section I plug the drive of modern Mesa, it is very oriented middle / high c is what gives it its special character when you push it too gain more potato but the downside is that it loses precision in definition and therefore must find the right balance and make concessions when found the plans solo master of great fit over nothing to do with the Ibanez RG Prestige base, against the face by the JEM7V JEM77 and it is below, was not dreaming either, the grain is not at all alike and of course c is not the same price also


Much better than Prestige basic but less so than its larger counterparts (and JEM7V JEM77) I remain puzzled about the final opinion ... for the fans I think it's better they take the JEM Prestige and amateur guitar as a non-main limited to shred or training, the Premium model may do the trick, for the fans after amateur mode. .. bah there that's complicated, € 1,035 for the Premium and € 2385 for the Prestige is a factor of two, either you are a fan or it is not, the price is also an argument, I finally pulled over the Premium which I find very pretty, the crayon is very successful and the price is correct is more light than the big sister but ... the difference was not very justified compared to my need
