The Vai pic is a fake

Doesn't look like he is sitting in front of his fan. Not to mention the lack of a monkey grip in that guitar.

Re: The answer to why Vai picked the winner of the design a Jem Contest...

LOL Freak..... he did say in his video that he sometimes chooses guitars based on his wardrobe so who knows?

Make no mistakes though, I really love the look of the winning design and would buy one in a heartbeat but was slightly put out about the plagiarism and lack of effort in making it as opposed to the multitude of entries put in on this site that clearly had many many hours spent designing them and were original as hell. Kudos to all the Jemsiters who entered their fantastic designs..... even some of the finalist guitars were highly questionable. Anyways.... it's over now, let's not dwell on it..... and I'd really like to see some or many of you build your designs as they were too awesome to leave as concept art.

I can see the sales of raw bodies from manufacturers going up slightly after this comp ended LOL

While this amused me.
Every time I see that winning guitar I cringe. >_<
There's really nothing more than a fancy paintjob to it

I'm also constantly annoyed that I could never pull off half the things he wears!

Re: The answer to why Vai picked the winner of the design a Jem Contest...

Cheers Agent..... I'm very glad that people in here like the guitar I'm trying my best to create. Makes me feel I'm on the right track to making something utterly unique and hopefully lusted after. I only own a 7VWh and a Les Paul Standard black. The other guitars I own are the one I began on and an acoustic. My aim is to have another top notch guitar to add to my other two for playing live gigs with, and that it makes people's eyes pop..... hopefully.

Incidentally...... when are we gonna see pictures of the finished Competition winners guitar. I'm really dying to see it made and to see Steve using it. What's the hold up?..... they could've knocked that out overnight, considering they only had to download the fractal wallpaper at high res off the website, like Alessandro did. Are they not going to show it or what?
