Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss is a true heavyweight in rock 'n' roll and needs a guitar capable of keeping up with her fast and furious shred and riffing techniques. In steps Ibanez with the JIVAJR, an affordable yet no less incredible variation on the original JIVA10.
This is a sleek, sharp and modern "S" style design packing some serious firepower in the form of quality hardware and electronics. It's ideally suited to high gain crunch and silky smooth lead playing.
The JIVAJR is made of a meranti wood body topped with a beautiful quilted maple top and is bound with a cutting 3-ply black outline. Attached is an Ibanez mainstay and one to bring your playing up to speed: the Wizard III neck in a solid maple. On top is a rich, dark ebony fretboard, making quick jumps around the neck effortless in conjunction with the awesome Luminlay glow-in-the-dark side dots - a feature you'll never want to go without once you've experienced them in a dim setting
Ibanez-made Edge-Zero II tremolo system is without doubt up there with the best, providing unwavering action and stability through all climates over a long period of time. It'll help keep your guitar in tune and add another dimension to your playing.
We love a good H/S/H pickup configuration, as the middle single coil adds so much character to each humbucker sound. The Ibanez Quantum set delivers searing high output from each position thanks to the ceramic magnets, retaining excellent clarity in the top end with the punch to meet modern rock and metal standards.
