Vai Paris Pics! - Funny new jem in one pic...

Hello all...

Someone from the Vai list posted this link of pics from the paris gig, some of the links lead to .mov files, pretty cool. There's a pretty funny looking jem or uv in one of the pics, abalone vine, rosewood fretboard, black body, abalone binding...sounds jem10 but no jem10 headstock on this one. *

Here's a link to the rest....

One thing I found cool (because I'm a dork...)...EVO is back with an actual 7VWH neck. (Maybe not alder, but the headstock is white). That's something we haven't seen since 97'.

The only thing original on it now is the body and the pick-ups. (Even then...I know Steve has done work with them since their inception, like putting 250K pots instead of 500K).
I was thrown off at first, thinking it was just EVO II, then I saw the black hardware, and an Edge, instead of a LoPro.

You'd think if he prefered an Edge on his favorite guitar, he'd change all his guitars to Edge's. If Ibanez produced an Edge-7, I'd be a happy man. (Tracking down the few that were made in the early 90's can be hard...).

Anyways, good to see the guitar out again, it's been in use for nearly 10 years. You can tell it's had some touch up work done to it, as half the chips on the lower body part aren't there anymore....wow...maybe my 7V is now the most beat to hell one I've ever seen...

Very nice! Thanks for posting.

One tends to forget how amazing it is to watch Vai perform live. These photos and movies helped to jog my memory. Now I have go listen to some Vai.

Hey guys I'm glad that you all like the pics and the movies but I want to stress that they are not from me, I don't take any credit for their existence, I merely posted them from the Vai yahoo list which I subscribe to. The guy you should be thanking is fredlight_2000, his website is http://fredlight.free.fr

Glad that you all like 'em!



Chris.

Can we talk about that double neck bass for a moment?

I looked pretty closely and couldn't see any difference between the 2 necks or pickups other than the reverse head on the bottom one.

Is Billy Sheehan just a glutton for punishment? *does he enjoy toting a 30 lb instrument around his neck?

Rock 'n roll, i guess :sarcasm:

YngVaiTriani-alder has absolutely nothing to do with the neck, I had a brain fart.


My bad.....

I was about to post about Evo's new 'standard' 7V neck, and saw Andy's... interesting, with that black hardware on it.
Is that a black Edge on there now? I was wondering about that from some pics a while back (before the neck was changed again)...
The crack at the corner of its neck pocket looks pretty dangerously long...

Andy - can you perhaps post a pic or three of your 7VWH, in all its beaten-up glory?
War scarring like that always fascinates me. It becomes the personality of the instrument.
