new ULTRA jem soon?

I was looking through some old magazines, and found a rather long interview with mr.Vai.
The thing I found mostly interesting was this;
(..and I quote..and translate from norwegian)

I'm working on an Ultra-guitar these days, with Ibanez. The guitar will have all imaginable facilities(?) built in, amongst them a sustainer. - a tour de force-guitar! It'll be for sale eventually, but in a very limited number - and it'll be EXPENSIVE. We're still working on the prototype, and it's uncertain when it'll be finished.

Maybe this is old news to some of you? ..anyways, the mag was 1 1/2 years old, so maybe we'll see the ultra jem soon?

In the same interview, vai also says this :
Right now we're working on an acoustic model, that's gonna be a Steve Vai signature guitar. This is something I've always wanted to do, but its not untill now I've found the time to do it

As long as it's not like the Stratacoustic, etc. Tho those are cool too. I want a real acoustic. Maybe similar to those Carvin ones. I'd like to see Ibanez try and make him an acoustic Edge bridge. They'll do anything for Steve.

I was just thinking, after the whole blood/DNA thing, they'd probably inlay a family member's body part if he asked for it.

Laughter is the best medicine, or something like that.

This was discussed here.
It's been a while since SSV said this so I wouldn't keep my hopes up too high.
