And The Award For Ugliest Stompbox of 2008 Goes To…

Ibanez-Steve-Vai-JeminiThe Ibanez Steve Vai Jemini Distortion Pedal… two channels of overdrive and distortion, each with individual Drive, Tone & Level controls, and all packed into a zinc die-cast chassis decked out to perfectly complement Vai’s famously color-challenged JEM guitar.

Ibanez is calling this one Vai’s “first Signature Distortion pedal…” Can that be correct? I’m not a big Steve Vai follower, but after all these years that just doesn’t seem possible.

You can check it out in all its gut-wrenching glory over on Ibanez’s official Steve Vai Jemini page. Of course, you should never judge a pedal by its color.
