Steve Vai's PIA

OK, why have I never seen this guitar before? Anyone have the specs on it? Obviously it pertains to his wife. Maybe it has some of her pubic hair inlayed in the neck.....

Dude - better hope "HIMSELF" doesnt see this!

It's just a 7vwh with the Real Reflections artwork on it. Oh, and silver hardware...it's real cool!

Re: Steve Vai's PIA

well JJEMMER777, your right, it does have silver hardware, but i'm afraid that the paint is the same as a regular 7vwh. and it also has a peizo pickup installed to give it that acoustic resonance. but sadly He (Vai) only played it a few times, and then sold it away.

It doesn't have silver hardware I had asked rich about that and he'd said it was chrome.

Re: Steve Vai's PIA

What was the name of the guitar Steve used for his Grammy perfomance with Nelly Furtada? Wasn't that Pia?

Re: Steve Vai's PIA

As well as it being his wife's name... it was probably for quick reference.....

EVO... has Evolutions
FLO.... has Sustainer
PIA.... has PIezo Acoustic
