He suggests the Root Beer is USA made and that the neon JEM's are revolting. For f*ck's sake...



Images like this make me embarrassed to be a guitarist.

To each their own I suppose. Why did he have to do that to such a great guitar though? He certainly could've "customized" an RG or something.

honestly, I like the clear guard, but that's about it. Why the hell would someone switch out an edge - it's mind-boggling.

Ain't that an OFR? Many people prefer it over the Edge series....

I'm sorry, did I offend the vest wearing public?

Sorry, I'm a bit under the weather so it's put me in a pissy mood

Yes indeedy 8 ) The early Steve Vai models came in loud colors - vivid yellow , pink , and green and usually all of these on the same guitar ! From there the visual overkill descended into floral prints and swirls , usually with pickups in a color deliberately mis-matched to the finish . I thought most of them looked revolting ( click this [ link ] to see why ) so I was glad to finally see this model and the black 7PBK .
Of course the Rootbeer and 7PBK were slow sellers and were quickly discontinued since most copycats went for the vivid colored ones that Vai preferred back then . This was actually a good thing for me - I got this Rootbeer brand new for half price ! I loved the sound and feel of the Jems but there was no way I was going for the big-***-rainbow color scheme . The Rootbeer and 7PBK have a slightly larger handle which is nice - I actually use the handle quite a bit and the regular style finger-grip handle is too small for me . I'd like to have a 7PBK also - it is this model in black with "disappearing pyramid" neck inlays in pearl and abalone . [ link ] ( No pink ! Woohoo! )

LOL!

OK, gotcha. That'd be a "waistcoat" over here.

But yeah... ummm, nice.

So sick boy hates being sick, eh... For what it's worth, I have flu.
