This Used 2000 Ibanez JEM Steve Vai Y2K VAI2K-DNA # 021/300 w/OHSC is on consignment. The guitar has had very little, if any play whatsoever. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case.
This is a truly special Ibanez Jem model. Only 300 were made and they have Steve Vai's blood mixed into the red paint used in the swirl finish, hence DNA in the title of the guitar. These have exponentially increased in value and will likely continue to do so.
The JEM2K, also known as the JEM2KDNA or simply the JEM DNA, is a JEM series solid-body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2000. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai which was made in Japan at the FujiGen Factory.
The JEM DNA is a special limited edition model issued to commemorate the new millennium; just 300 were produced. The red paint used in the swirl (which was done by Darren Johansen of About Time Design) contains some of Vai's own blood, hence the DNA appellation. The guitar features an American basswood body bolted to a maple and Bubinga neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with a special "DNA/ blood vessel" inlay pattern in luminous blue and green and luminous green side dots. Components include a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, DiMarzio Breed pickups mounted in an illuminant clear pickguard with a pair of green and black humbuckers flanking a red single-coil, and Gotoh tuning machines.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, gets cleaned, then some fresh strings, and a full set-up before being put up for sale. We often even put guitars with worn frets through our Plek machine if need be! Rest assured, any Used Guitar from The Music Gallery has certainly passed its physical!
