Re: Steve Vai plays BC Rich?

I think if im correct Steve got this guitar in 1989. I think it was mainly for use on WhiteSnakes album Slip of the tounge. I think he said he only used the Jem for one song on the album which i found strange as the JEM, was only 2 years old!

Also i think steve wrote on the guitar, Thats a B****, hahaha!

Edit: i also though this was a recent picture aswell, Steve has the same hair cut now!

He's got more non-Ibanez guitars in his stash, too.

Nah, if he lost a bet--he'd be holding a Daisy Rock.

^ I played a Daisy Rock that resonated better and louder than dad's 770. Comfy neck too . Pickups and hardware were sh*t though!

But yeah, he is allowed to touch non-Ibanez guitars too

There's a picture out there somewhere of Steve Vai playing a beautiful red PRS Custom 24 guitar.

Caused a lot of questions I recall, Ed ****ing Roman started saying that Steve was switching to PRS...like Steve was ever gonna leave the Jem and the Universe behind for something else -.-

That's the one. Great picture, and proof that limiting yourself to one style/brand/model of guitar is just that -- limiting.

Didn't Ed Roman die a few years ago?

I don't know, don't think so at least, I think he's still alive and raging against every guitar that isn't USA made.

Still, Steve makes the Jem look good and not the other way around, seen him here in Lisbon (12/12/12), I look so dumb with mine, he just makes it work

Yes, Ed Roman DID die. In 2011 I believe. Heart problems (shocker) if I remember correctly.

It comes to us all, but on happier thoughts, always wondered what are the functions to all those controls on Steve's BC Rich.
