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
