The JEM7V, also known as the JEM7VSBL, is a JEM series solid body electric guitar model and signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai. It was made in Japan by FujiGen

The JEM7V features an alder body with basswood veneer bolted to a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with blue Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include DiMarzio Evolution pickups mounted in a white pickguard with a pair of humbuckers flanking a single-coil, a vintage silver double locking tremolo bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The Lo-Pro Edge tremolo was replaced by the newly introduced Edge Pro in 2003.

The JEM7V is a similar model with a white finish and gold hardware. The JEM7V also had an ebony fretboard during the time the Sparkle Blue version was offered.

The JEM7V SBL was discontinued after 2004.
