Talking Pre-EVO?

What was Vai's main guitar before EVO the (VWH) came out? We always see Vai with EVO or FLO in pictures, more than any others obviously. Any pictures with his other pre-EVO Jem main guitars?

I don't think he had a set main Jem guitar back in those days, He played his UVMC's a lot, his PBK, and Flo prepainted.

Yes, & why did he repaint FLO? Why not just keep it original?

Because he wanted a guitar that went well with all his outfits on stage...(Yeah, he's a little Metro)

He used this one for a long while before the ibanez hookup.

Before that (with Zappa) it was almost always strats.

Re: Pre-EVO?

Between the Whitesnake tour (mostly Universe http://vai.com/Machines/guitarpages/guitar025.html) and the start of the EVO era, he did do a couple of things with either an old PBK or a new GMC (for example Sevilla http://youtube.com/watch?v=sbZO7xBtaK4, photoshoots) the PBK made it all the way to the ALS tour (http://vai.com/Machines/guitarpages/guitar022.html)
