The JEM7,also known as the JEM7 BSB, is a JEM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid/late 1995. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai.

The JEM7 features an American basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fretboard with screw-head position markers. Components include a pair of DiMarzio Evolution humbucking pickups flanking an Evolution single-coil mounted in a brushed aluminum pickguard, a Lo Pro Edge double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

A previous model bearing the same name was offered in the late 1980's as the JEM7 RB.

The JEM7 BSB had a production run of six plus years before being discontinued after 2001.
