Ibanez Steve Vai Signature PIA Guitar in Onyx Black

Featuring DiMarzio UtoPIA Pickups, Edge Tremolo & Stainless Steel Frets. Hardshell Case Included.


The Ibanez PIA (meaning "Paradise In Art") is the result of another fruitful collaboration between Ibanez and Steve Vai. It's immediately apparent that this ornate instrument is an evolved version of the Vai’s familiar JEM series of instruments. For the PIA, Ibanez has tweaked a number of features to elevate it to new creative heights.

Cutting-Edge Construction

Aesthetically, the PIA guitar takes Vai's signature design style to the next level. Eye-catching finishes, intricate floral patterns, luxurious gold hardware - the works.

In terms of functional design, the construction promises precise and dynamic performance. A solid Alder body features a renewed take on Vai’s signature handhold feature, while the Rosewood fingerboard boasts a beautiful multi-coloured blossom inlay. The multi-piece neck is comprised of Maple and Walnut, while the new PIA neck profile promises graceful navigation of the 24-fret range.

DiMarzio UtoPIA Pickups 

The PIA's headline feature is arguably its versatile, H/S/H set of DiMarzio UtoPIA pickups. These have been specially-voiced by Vai and DiMarzio to offer a smoother treble response and a more pronounced low-end - for pristine modern tones. DiMarzio has also added a distinct finish to the pickup covers, perfectly complementing the guitar's vibrant aesthetic.

Edge Tremolo

Ibanez's Edge tremolo bridge is combined with the groundbreaking "Lion's Claw" tremolo cavity. This allows for rapid vibrato with dramatic pitch range - no limits to your expression.

Make no mistake: the PIA range is the culmination of a working relationship between Vai and Ibanez that spans over 3 decades. This is arguably the ultimate Vai signature model, and a first-class performance instrument in every sense.
