This really seems to be the year of the 7 string, maybe just because I currently have a custom 7 string on order but it seems that there is an amazing choice in 2013. Ibanez have already added to their premium range with new 7 strings and now they are expanding their Steve Vai signature JEM range with the JEM 7V7, a 7 string version of Vai’s favoured white JEM 7V. Now you might be thinking what’s the difference between this and a Universe? Well I think it is mainly aesthetics, colour, vine inlays, monkey grip, lion claw trem route etc.
