A new collaboration from Steve Vai and Ibanez with DiMarzio pickups.
Introducing the Ibanez PIA—the latest collaboration between Ibanez and guitar virtuoso Steve Vai. Thirty-three years after the release of one of the most legendary and iconic Ibanez signature guitars of all time, the Ibanez JEM, Vai and Ibanez once again collaborated to create what Vai describes as "the next evolution of the JEM." Vai felt an urge to design a new guitar that reflected his own personal growth and journey as an artist since the release of the Ibanez JEM in 1987. Vai and Ibanez worked tirelessly over a period of time to bring Vai's vision to life. Vai wanted to construct a guitar that not only captures the same thrill and exhilaration that his JEM guitars always provided, but one that also adds new elements of aesthetics, design and function.
After a process of research and development, Vai and Ibanez created a guitar that Vai deemed "Paradise in Art," or PIA. One of the most eye-catching features of the PIA is the "petal grip," which is something that Vai feels visually represents the bond that two entities can create when in synergy with one another. It is this synergy, and its ability to create a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than its parts, that the Ibanez PIA is born.
