The JEM77 Green Multi Color (GMC) is a JEM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1992. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The JEM77 GMC features a green and black swirl paint job which was applied by Darren Johansen of About Time Design (ATD). It has a basswood body with a monkey grip handle and lion's claw tremolo rout bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with fluorescent green Tree of Life vine inlays. The upper four frets are scalloped. Components include DiMarzio pickups mounted in a clear pickguard with a pair of green and black humbuckers flanking a green single-coil, a Lo-Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge, a tilt output jack and Gotoh tuning machines.

The JEM77 PMC is a similar model with a purple swirl and maple fretboard with pyramid position markers.

The JEM77 GMC was discontinued after 1993. Just 366 examples were produced.
