Has any other famous guitarists used a Jem onstage?

Or is Steve Vai the only famous player to use one onstage? I imagine many players have contracts and even their own models but was just curious about ones who don't or didn't at one time.

I think Justin Hawkins from The Darkness had one.

I think the way endorsements work it would be tough. As soon as you get noticed, especially playing an Ibanez, they will offer you the services of the custom shop. Everybody gets their knickers in a bunch at the thought of getting something to their specs, so they pick that. You might hear the jem on a CD, but chances are you'll see one of Tak's one off's on the stage. IMHO

I think that was just some custom parts guitar, not a real Jem.

I remember seeing ads in a bunch of my old guitar mags for the band Shotgun Messiah and I think he was holding a 777VDY.

Re: Has any other famous guitarists used a Jem onstage?

I remember a long, long, time ago I saw Dimebag Darrell playing a JEM777LNG.
It was on MTV in some live footage.
I'd never heard of Pantera at the time.
I thought, man that is some heavy music, but that guy can play.

Justin has both a custom "jem" with a lightning bolt handle and an FP.

I think I read somewhere that Harry Cody's Jem was an undersized custom. Aside from him I only know of CC Deville using one once in a while back in the day.

Two spanish guitar virtuosos play JEMS onstage:

_ David Palau: 7V WH; check his own band Güru or his tours with Alejandro Sanz and David Bisbal.

_ Jorge Salán: 7D BK; check his solo albums and his contributions to Mägo de Öz.

Google or youtube have tons of footage from both. You will love it...
