Personally I'd like to see more Breeds. The DBK has it but it's basswood and some don't like the thinner neck or look. (the look's ok for me)
and the DNA also has breeds but how mny have the $ to pay for one if they're lucky enough to have 1 of the 300.
Yeah... Breeds and alder.
It's easy enough (and cheaper) to throw some Breeds into a VWH than buy a DNA.
I think the Breeds were a bit of a whim from Steve.
He probably liked the sound of them for a while then changed his mind (nothing new) as he still uses evo's.
I used to love the Breed's, I then got a little unsatisfied with them and wanted a change, but of late I've been experimenting a little more and I find they are very versatile and can do things I never realised. In short they're a pickup you need to spend a bit of time with to get the best out of.
What does annoy me with Vai (and I'm sure he'll do it with the blue jem) is the fact that he doesn't use them, i.e. if you're gonna' launch a new guitar, BSB, DBK, DNA whatever......then use the damn thing! Stop relying on the VWH as your mainstay, experiment a little.
For people to spend such large amounts on a guitar such as the DNA (of which he doesn't even own one now (I think)) surely he should be playing one more often!
Vai likes to see himself as this ever evolving guitar player, but he's still stuck with his VWH, hmmmmmm.........
