Monkey grip
Steve Vai's signature Monkey grip Red copyright sprite

Monkey grip is the term used to describe the body cutout in Steve Vai's signature JEM guitars. The grip is located just above the pickups. The cutout is curved on the bottom with notches for four fingers facing the edge of the guitar. It is slightly carved away on the underside of the body.

Steve Vai uses the grip to perform various flashy stage maneuvers, but other than that it serves no function.
