Pics/vids of Vai and his UV777BK?

I was just interested in seeing Vai with his UV777BK. I've seen one little video of him sitting down and playing something he "liked to do with 7 strings" which was pretty cool. But I was wondering if anyone had links to pics or vids or stories of him using one in concert?

SSV hardly uses UVs these days, I don't think you will find a lot....

Re: Pics/vids of Vai and his UV777BK?

That's what I'm afraid of...I know he used to play his UV77MC ALL the time back in the late 80's early 90's, but recently I haven't seen him with many UV's let alone the UV777BK which he's supposed to be endorsing. However I could be wrong like I was with the BRMR, that's why I asked this because I'd like to see him using it.

Re: Pics/vids of Vai and his UV777BK?

I think the video of him sitting & playing it, was in an actual "Ibanez" video about the 7-string. It had a few people in it. Head & Monkey, dude from Fear Factory, Dream Theater, Wes Borlin, and some jazz dude. I remember back when Vai hosted Headbangers Ball on MTV..........he had his swirled UV, and one of those Marshall micro stacks. He was playing bits & pieces of PAW going into commercials.
By the way............does anyone know where to score a copy of the "For the love of God" video? Ive never seen it, except a very small clip f it in that "Ibanez" video.

Re: Pics/vids of Vai and his UV777BK?

it used to be posted on his website...not sure if it is anymore. I have it if you want me to AIM it to you sometime. I'll be home laer tonight after 9pm eastern.

Funny thing about the title of this thread...my buddy is going to see steve on thanksgiving (he's friend with steve's nephew) and I'm hoping to get a picture of steve with MY UV (i won't be there, just my guitar, unfortunately)

Will certainly post if/when i get that pic. My UV is one of a kind, so it won't be just any UV/Vai pic

Re: Pics/vids of Vai and his UV777BK?

The shot above is photoshopped. The original image showed Steve holding the proto DNA.

Steve still uses Universe guitars. Most recently he used them during the Real Illusions sessions - and one of the tracks - "Under It All" is performed with a 7 string. He doesn't take them on the road usually because if he takes one, he needs to bring another as a backup. Space is limited during a tour, so Steve leaves 7 string parts to Dave Weiner.

Steve recently took delivery of a hard tail 7-string from Ibanez. He also has a white 8-string. I'll post photos of both soon on Vai.com.
