What did Vai use...

...on Tender Surrender? I know Kid from Seattle was done on an MIJ Strat, but the clean bits of Tender Surrender? Anyone? Was it a Jem?

I'm not sure, but it really sounds like he is using EVO (a 7vh prototype), with the selector split to using a coil from the neck HB and a the middle single coil.

Wow..It's hard to picture him using a Strat to record such an iconic song. Not that it hasn't been done before by others...it's just hard to picture him playing anything except a Jem or Universe.

Yup, thats exactly what I said in the first reply to this thread
IIRC there is a place on SSV's website where he shares which guitars he uses for which parts on his albums, at least for his most recent album (real illusions).
