Peach Guitars | Ibanez Steve Vai

When we look back on the history of the electric guitar, there are plenty of exceptional players, but there are very few who truly changed the game. Those pioneers, who broke the mould and found a new way to squeeze every inch of creative energy from their instrument, one of those guys, those groundbreakers, is Steve Vai.

Not to brag, but we were really fortunate, and humbled, to be able to spend some time with Steve a few years back at NAMM, treated to an exclusive up close and personal demo of his Synergy Module, we experienced his rig, and incredible talent, first hand!

Everybody is familiar with Steve’s iconic signature guitar, the Steve Vai Ibanez Jem, but a few years back Steve introduced an alternative to his signature line, the brilliant Pia. Named after Steve’s wife, the Pia takes the magic of the Jem and pushes even further forward!

The Ibanez Pia 3761 in Stallion White offers the total Vai experience! With an Alder body, the Pia is super resonant and delivers rich tones and great sustain. With a fresh take on the signature Steve Vai Monkey grip (now the Pia grip) you have something to grab hold of when you shred to the extreme! 

The 5 piece Maple/Walnut Pia neck is exactly what Ibanez are known for, with its flat radius and thin profile you can shred for days. The Rosewood fingerboard is just amazing and features the signature Pia Blossom inlay that makes the Pia so special. With Premium fret edge treatment, the Pia has a truly smooth and precise feel.

Designed by DiMarzio the UtoPIA pickups deliver all the crushing, soaring Vai-esque tones you could ever want! This high gain single coil has a great harmonic range but without the harsh top end, it’s really well rounded and organic but still packs a killer punch. Sitting either side are a pair of humbuckers for a more aggressive sound. Complete with Edge locking tremolo unit, you can dive bomb all day without compromising on your tuning stability and intonation!
