Despagni Flame , signed by Vai ?

Hi,
I am new here , searched the board but couldnt find the answer to my question so I am posting

Does anyone know if there has been a re-release of Despagni Flame's that were signed by Steve Vai ?
I may have a lead on one and was wondering if this might be one of the many build by Despagni and later signed by Steve ?
thanks

There is no "re release", but there are some flame models floating out there. I am sure Steve has signed more than one over the years.

The only other "official" Flames were the 19 made by Performance.

That looks like the 100's of "custom" built by anybody's out in the world. Very low value.

There is no authenticity, it's a custom build by whoever.

I agree with you 100% what I was getting at was...... The guy comes onto this site for some friendly chat and advise about this guitar that he is buying, so he obviously has some desire to own this item, its probably going to be his pride and joy, then someone basically says to him its got very little value and was probably put together buy a nobody.....subtle as a sledge hammer LMFAO. oh and buy the way mate, welcome to 'jemsite' Now your dreams have been shattered, hope you have a nice day! pmsllmfao

If, in fact, that was the guy's dream guitar, Rich did him a favor by telling him that it wasn't a genuine flame. He'd have felt worse if he'd already bought it and THEN found out it was a clone.

Its called sarcasm, look it up. maybe its the language barrier but could you not tell by the wording that all I was calling for was a bit of tact? This poor bloke is now probably gutted. trust me I dont find that funny if thats what your referring to. If I was a 'schmuck' and meant to be offensive then I would have started hurling insults at you and would not have bothered trying to explain myself.

Thanks , !
I survived better , and worse , fora *grins*

But no one shattered my dreams, or let me know my 'dream guitar' is worthless. I actually didnt even know Despagni , the flame guitar or that Vai played it (yes.. I will admit to that !) until I was offered it .. together with a Ibanez PS10 'Cracked Mirror' , and as anyone would do.. I started to investigate this quirky looking guitar first before buying .

I dont mind spending some cash on a guitar I like but I do mind trowing away cash on something that has no value at all , other than maybe a signature..

So the PS10 might be the one to get from the seller .. and I will not touch the flame

Thanks again for the info !

LOL. There's no language barrier at all. You just hurled an insult, schmuck.
