EXCLUSIVE in-depth interview with the Ibanez Artist Relations Manager who helped Steve to bring his vision for the next evolution of the JEM guitar to life. That guitar is the PIA, short for "Passion In Art". Mike Orrigo and I have a good chat about the differences between the JEM vs the PIA at NAMM 2020.
