Guitarist Steve Vai's webmaster has issued the following urgent message:

"Steve Vai's guitar Bo was stolen earlier today (December 12th) at a loading area outside of The Wiltern Theater in L.A. It's a mirror Ibanez JEM with blue LED's, a Sustainer system, and a red laser built into the headstock/neck. The forearm contour is also cracked/distressed a bit. Attached is a picture. If you hear something or think you've seen it, please message THIS page."

This is a detail destcription of "Bo". More photos can be found at the link above.

  • Bo has blue LED fret dots and a red laser in the headstock tip. They are turned on by an on/off switch and powered by battery.
  • Bo has deep scratches on the armrest area, and the mirrored surface shows wear.
  • Bo is equipped with a Fernandes Sustainer FSK-401 system, with an extra sustainer control knob and sustainer control switches.
  • The mirror pickguard has been cracked noticeably around the volume knob.
  • The guitar is a LACS model with an Ibanez Lo Pro Edge tremolo- all production BRMR Jems had the Edge Pro tremolo.
  • Bo's neck was broken in 2013 behind the nut, and was repaired by Ibanez. The neck is super thin with a "skunk stripe" walnut strip, while all production BRMR Jem necks were of a 5 piece design.
  • The guitar has a piece of green Gaff tape on the side of the left arm rest with its name "Bo" written on it in marker.
  • Bo has a prototype Ibanez UTA whammy bar made of aluminum.
  • The pickups have black gaff tape on them to keep the strings from getting caught.
  • Bo is equipped with an Ibanez Backstop device, located in the tremolo cavity of the guitar.
