The JEMJR, also referred to as the JEM, Jr., is a solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It is a signature model of American guitarist Steve Vai and part of Vai's JEM series. It is the most affordable JEM model.

As with all JEM models the body features Vai's signature monkey grip on the upper body and lion's claw rout behind the tremolo. It has an all-white color pattern, with white body, headstock, pickups, pickguard, fingerboard inlay and knobs.

The JEMJR features mahogany body mated to a maple Wizard II neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with Tree of Life vine inlays. Components include Ibanez Quantum pickups in an HSH configuration, a double locking tremolo bridge and a locking nut.

Guitar Player said, "the JEM Jr. looks good, plays fast, and is by far the most affordable guitar in the Vai Signature series. It really is an exceptional value for the working-class JEM fan."[1]

The JEMJR represents a revival of sorts of the JEM-JR which was produced between 2002 and 2012.

The JEMJRL is a left-handed version which was introduced in late 2016.
