The JIVAJR is Strauss's second signature guitar. It is a more affordable version of her JIVA10.

The JIVAJR is based on the S series. It features a quilted maple top with 3-ply binding on a meranti body bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with "Beaten Path" EKG-style position markers and luminescent side dots. Components include an Edge Zero II double locking tremolo bridge, Ibanez Quantum pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil and Ibanez tuning machines.
