PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

Here's another awesome Japanese-built Ibanez artist signature axe - Nita Strauss' JIVAX2! This beautiful guitar in a stunning Ghost finish with super-rad custom fretboard inlays, and made with the FujiGen factory's precision build quality, is a hard-edged machine tuned to the rock vixen's exacting specifications. 

Based on the classic Ibanez "S" body shape, this guitar is extremely comfortable to play and hold on your lap. Due to the thin body, it's extremely lightweight: sub-8 lbs is extremely light for a mahogany-bodied instrument with the venerable Edge-Zero tremolo and a fully-loaded HSH pickup configuration. The JIVA neck is a class choice for this axe, and is similar in shape to the popular Super Wizard HP found on the Prestige guitars - comfortable, super slim and speedy.

The DiMarzio Pandemonium pickups are Nita's signature pickups and man do they kick ass! Equipped with ceramic magnets and wound to medium output, they're Nita's ideal take on a harder-edged classic rock sound that can handle higher levels of gain extremely well. They also have uniquely-designed pickup covers that look seriously awesome. Pair them with the True Velvet in the middle position, and you have a very versatile tonal palette.

Details

"I’ve been designing my signature guitar in my head since I started playing guitar- and the JIVA is that dream come to life. From the tone woods to the sleek design to the incredibly versatile sounds, this guitar is everything I've ever wanted!"

Los Angeles born guitarist Nita Strauss has become a force to be reckoned with in the music world, dazzling audiences across the US, UK, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa, and sharing the stage with a diverse range of artists including rock legend Alice Cooper, R&B star Jermaine Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens.

Her skill, exuberant stage presence and love for all things about her instrument have earned her a stellar reputation and endorsements from many top companies. Nita has been featured in many worldwide print magazines and on dozens of albums, trailers, and soundtracks, including Heroes Of The Storm (Blizzard) and Grammy-nominated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Konami/ Platinum Games); and is the author of the Guitar World magazine monthly column "Like a Hurricane." Nita was also the official in-house guitarist for the LA KISS, the arena football team owned by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS.

In 2018, Nita became the first ever female to become a signature artist with Ibanez guitars. Her signature guitar, the Ibanez JIVA, will hit stores in the summer of 2018. She also launched a signature set of DiMarzio Pandemonium pickups.

Nita is one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry today and has done extensive clinic tours across multiple continents. Her consistent touring schedule has led her to play hundreds of shows a year, in front of over a million audience members every year.

Nita is currently playing guitar for Alice Cooper and her bands We Start Wars and The Starbreakers, and working on her debut solo record, Controlled Chaos.

In addtion, the zero point system offers much greater tuning stability.
