Meet the “New” Ibanez Jem
The beginning of my creative path coincided with the peak of the popularity of the guitar Ibanez JEM. Due to this I could not refuse a proposal from the head of the community #ibanezfamily, Alexander Bespoldenov, to help create a tribute to the prototype of this legendary instrument. This project is a kind of tribute to the famous guitar, which in 2017 turned 30 years old.
The project is interesting because the task was not to make an exact copy of the prototype, but to create something collective, filled with the spirit of Steve Vai, recognizable, and at the same time unusual. Generally speaking, this is an exciting improvisation on this topic!
