Ibanez Steve Vai Signature PIA Guitar in Panther Pink

Written by

Sam Beattie

Ibanez has unveiled its latest collaboration with Steve Vai: introducing Paradise In Art. This ornate instrument is an evolved version of the Vai’s familiar JEM series of instruments, with a number of design tweaks that elevate it to new creative heights.

The body is solid Alder with a fresh take on Vai’s handhold feature, while the neck is a multi-piece comprised of Maple and Walnut. A Rosewood fretboard boasts a beautiful multi-coloured blossom inlay, and an HSH set of new DiMarzio UtoPIA pickups offer a smoother treble response and a more pronounced low-end.

Here’s what Ibanez say:

PIA Blossom inlay

The newly designed PIA Blossom inlay is gorgeous, prominent, and elegantly imparts Steve Vai’s trademark style and artistic vision.

Petal Grip

Exclusively designed for the PIA, the new Petal Grip offers a balanced, contemporary design aesthetic. It’s also meant to symbolize unity, companionship, and interpersonal bonds.

DiMarzio UtoPIA pickups

Based on Steve's latest tonal preferences, DiMarzio UtoPIA pickups are voiced for smoother highs, more scooped mids, and more pronounced low-end. The pickups incorporate beautiful aesthetics and design elements meant to complement the cosmetic features of the guitar.

Edge Tremolo

The Edge tremolo bridge and groundbreaking Lion's Claw tremolo cavity allow for rapidly increasing and lowering pitch with dramatic range and an intense voice.

Magnetic Tremolo Cavity Plate

The tremolo cavity plate is held in place magnetically, allowing for quick removal and reinstallation when changing strings or adjusting the tremolo system.
