Title says all.
Do you miss that wide neck on the hands of Dr. Vai?

Re: Should Steve Vai go back to the Universe?

When and why did Vai stop using his Universe guitars? Wasn't he the one who started the 7-string rock guitar revolution back in the day?

Re: Should Steve Vai go back to the Universe?

vai still uses universe's quite frequently. they've been on basically all his studio albums since they were invented.

i think he doesn't use them live because...he has no use for that low B. vai plays instrumental guitar music and 99% of what he plays live is soloing or the "lead" guitar part of the song. that's why he has dave weiner on 7-string.

Knowing Mr. Vai and how he has a passion for explosive live performances, I would think that he could at least use the 7-string guitars for "props" so "innocent" people would go "OMG there are seven strings on his guitar!" )

I wish he went back to Marshall amps - P&W had 'that' sound.

Re: Should Steve Vai go back to the Universe?

As long as he has the tools to get out the music stuck in his head, I don't really care. But a new square neck heel UV would be cool

For sure!

IMO, P&W is one of the best sounding albums ever put out.
