New Vai Universe?

On the cover of the Oct 2009 Guitar Player. Multi-color splotchy design Universe with pickguard and pyramid inlays. Looks COOL.

Big article on Steve and the back cover is a full page ad for the new hard-tail Jem.

MUST PICK IT UP!!!!!!!!!!

Re: New Vai Universe?

Is this in stores, or do have a subscription? Subs always seem to come early...

Re: New Vai Universe?

I saw the new issue when I was out. It looks like the FTLOG Universe all cleaned up with a mirror pickguard and new pickups.

Re: New Vai Universe?

It's one of the old MCs, that has had a blow torch taken to the finish. Mirror guard and white pickups/pink knobs, but its an old MC not a new guitar. Actually, it is this one: http://www.vai.com/Machines/guitarpages/guitar030.html
with new guard/pickups/knobs

EDIT: beat me by a minute Mike!

Re: New Vai Universe?

at Jim!

I wonder if Mr. Vai is leaning back towards a real color as he's been photographed with some of these older guitars of late; like the LNG.
You Jem guys must be chomping at the bit for a new color!

Re: New Vai Universe?

Vai has been a precursor !
a "simple" UVMC would be nice, but didn't have the "fool" ingredient !

i hope for a mutlicolor-fun-exciting-flashy-HQ-7strings-guitar !!!

What the HELL does religion have to do with anything discussed in this thread?
