Vai's BiAX Guitar

So i was in London about two weeks ago and i was in Rhodes music down denmark street (at least i think it was Rhodes, its was one of the guitar shops down denmark anyway) and i saw hanging on the wall with a proud sign emblazoned with

STEVE VAI'S GUITAR

and i realised it was the BiAX guitar...

Now i didnt know if that had been sold for charity or even just fogged or whatever because im not exacly the most up to date person, but it looked legit... the question is is it... and if so... anyone have £3000 odd so i can get it? LOL no im joking with the last bit, but seriously is that the real deal?

Cheers
CD

Re: Vai's BiAX Guitar

That guitar has been in there for a loooooong looooong time

As with all their stuff it's priced absurdly!!! I actually thought it used to be more than that, maybe they tried a new "bargain" price

3K for an RG550 with special pickups? So what if it once was in vai's arsenal? apparently he did not like it so much so he gave it away

Re: Vai's BiAX Guitar

It was Rockers, not Rhoads.

I was there not long ago.. and I saw it.. and I wanted it... But I bought the PGM they had Its awesome (wasnt very well setup, but within 10 minutes of getting out of the case.. )

I dont think its really worth it though. For 3000ish, how much of that price is just becasue Vai used to own it once upon a time? I dont think the guitar itself is worth near even half of that.

I could be wrong, but although it was a charity guitar when it left Vai's hands, I don't think it's for charity anymore!!! I think it's just sitting in a shop in London, not selling.

Re: Vai's BiAX Guitar

Yep, still there, been there for ages, someone may at some point want it, but I doubt it's worth it unless you have the dosumentation to prove it, and even then, it's just an RG, and an "experimentation" guitar...
