The JEM77, also known as the JEM77 Floral Pattern 2 (or just JEM77 FP2) is a JEM series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2010. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai. It is produced in Japan by FujiGen.

The JEM77 is the fifth guitar known as the JEM77 and the third floral pattern JEM after the original JEM77 FP and the JEM77 (Blue Floral Pattern). It features a basswood body bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with Tree of Life inlays which is scalloped above the 21 fret. Components include an Edge double locking tremolo bridge (which was also revived in 2010), DiMarzio Evolution pickups with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil and Gotoh tuning machines. It is the first JEM with the DiMarzio Evo 2 as the stock bridge pickup. It also marks the return of the cutaway heel neck joint not used for a JEM since the last Floral Pattern in 2004.

As with the original Floral Pattern JEM, the finish of the JEM77 FP2 is created with actual floral pattern cloth. The fabric is glued to the body and headstock, the edges are painted black and then a clear coat is applied.
