The JEM77V (also known as the JEM77V BK) is a JEM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2007. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai.

The V in JEM77V refers to the abalone and pearl Vine fingerboard inlay. Other features include a basswood body with pearloid binding bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. Components include DiMarzio Breed pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a double locking tremolo bridge, an angled output jack and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2010, the Edge Pro is replaced with the original Edge tremolo.

The JEM77V was discontinued after 2011.
