Los Angeles born guitarist Nita Strauss has become a force to be reckoned with in the music world, dazzling audiences across the US, UK, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa, and sharing the stage with a diverse range of artists including rock legend Alice Cooper, R&B star Jermaine Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens.
Her skill, exuberant stage presence and love for all things about her instrument have earned her a stellar reputation and endorsements from many top companies. Nita has been featured in many worldwide print magazines and on dozens of albums, trailers, and soundtracks, including Heroes Of The Storm (Blizzard) and Grammy-nominated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Konami/ Platinum Games); and is the author of the Guitar World magazine monthly column "Like a Hurricane." Nita was also the official in-house guitarist for the LA KISS, the arena football team owned by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS.
In 2018, Nita became the first ever female to become a signature artist with Ibanez guitars. Her signature guitar, the Ibanez JIVA, hit stores in the summer of 2018. She also launched a signature set of DiMarzio Pandemonium pickups.
Nita is one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry today and has done extensive clinic tours across multiple continents. Her consistent touring schedule has led her to play hundreds of shows a year, in front of over a million audience members every year.
Nita is currently playing guitar for Alice Cooper and her bands We Start Wars and The Starbreakers, and working on her debut solo record, Controlled Chaos.
Shortly after the successful launch of Nita Strauss’ Ibanez signature guitar, the JIVA10 in 2018, Nita approached Ibanez about making a more affordable version of the immensely popular guitar. Instead of simply cutting corners in on a JIVA10 and calling it a day, Nita and the team decided to design a whole new guitar that is just as striking as the original JIVA, but has a character that is all its own.
Fast-playing Wizard III neck and ebony fingerboard
For many players, the Wizard neck profile has been what makes an Ibanez an Ibanez. And you'll find the third-generation Wizard III on the JIVAJR. Its incredibly thin contour is a favorite among fast, technical players, as it allows unfettered movement up and down the fretboard. Even if your runs begin in the open position and end at the highest frets, this neck won't get in your way, and higher fret access is enhanced by the contoured cutaway. Beyond that, the neck is capped with a luxurious ebony fingerboard, providing you with unbelievably smooth fretting.
Trio of Ibanez Quantum pickups covers an expansive sonic range
Ask any guitarist at Sweetwater to describe Ibanez's Quantum pickups in just a few words, and "articulate" and "hot" will probably be near the top of the list. You've got the tonal aggression you need for hard rock and lead lines, with a defined sound that helps individual notes ring through. Especially if you juggle rhythm and lead guitar roles, you should have the sonic flexibility you need with the Ibanez JIVAJR Nita Strauss Signature guitar.
Edge-Zero II tremolo delivers solid performance and stability
The Ibanez JIVAJR's Edge-Zero II tremolo gives you the fast response and snap you need to pull off sharp bends and vibrato. The extreme stability of this knife-edge-style trem's stud lock function is also one of the many reasons it's a favorite among many of today's top players. If you're looking for a guitar that can stand up to long, aggressive playing sessions without losing its tuning, you're going to love the JIVAJR.
