Ibanez Nita Strauss JIVA10 Signature - Deep Space Blonde
Nita was born and raised in Los Angeles and brought up by a musical family, she has been surrounded by music her entire life. It was only a matter of time until she picked up the guitar, and she has never looked back since.
After years of touring the world and establishing her name in the LA rock scene, she joined Alice Cooper’s band in 2014. Since then she has become a household name in the guitar community, captivating audiences all over the world with her virtuosic chops and electric stage presence.
Ibanez has been her go-to weapon of choice since the beginning, inspired by her heroes such as Steve Vai and Shawn Lane. Now, one of her biggest dreams has come true - her very own Ibanez signature model. Nita is Ibanez’s first female signature artist and this model was a show-stopper at NAMM 2018.
The JIVA10 is based on the S series and features Nita’s own personal touches, such as her signature "Pandemonium" pickups by DiMarzio and the special "Beaten Path" fingerboard inlay.
The guitar’s finish was personally named by Nita as “Deep Space Blonde,” which is a gray burst on a natural quilted maple top. Nita named the guitar JIVA, which translates to one’s “soul,” a word found in Asian religions and one that has a deep personal connection with Nita as well.
