Re: Mind officially blown......

Thanks man, and thankyou to everyone in here who helped with it's creative process and decision making processes. It's a win for all of you.

I'm still in disbelief. These shots were taken at the Vai Masterclass on the 20th October 2011 in Perth, Australia

Re: Mind officially blown......

he loved it dude. I talked to him for about 10 minutes on its creation and the idea behind it and how it came to be.....most of what you all already know.

It sure has come full circle now, and the book can be shut on this custom.

Now.... onto the next project. Which will be? Hmmmmm........

Macka--I'm proud of you, bro! You took your vision to reality, then one step further--great job!
One question, though--did you offer it to him? If so, what did he say?

Re: Mind officially blown......

Yeah I did, but he said there was no way he could take that off a fan as it wouldn't feel right, no matter how much I wanted him to.

I didn't argue with the man. Now I just have to figure out the best way to seal the signature on so I can use it onstage without worrying about wearing it off.

That's really cool--at least he signed it.
Now, get some good clearcoat spray. Shoot "mist" coats over the signature. Don't go really wet, just very light mists. Let dry between coats. I'd do about 5-6 light mists. That will seal it very well.

Nice work man.... You got more talk time then I did... Back stage in Melbourne, was dark and a little to hectic, for any real conversation...

I have met Vai twice and both times it was dark and I acted like a school girl to embarrassed to say much... Man I suck :P

That's brilliant, Macka! Your guitar takes its place with instruments that have an awesome story behind them. Great work!
