Re: What does everyone think about this True Temperment necks that Vai talks about
I don't see anything that ridiculous about it. Of course, for an average guitarist, the cost-benefit of going with a true temperament neck would probably suggest against it, but I don't see a reason why someone like Vai shouldn't go for it.
Fwiw, probably nobody here played a guitar like this, so we really can't tell how much of a difference it makes. I would personally think that there would really be some difference when playing chords, probably enough for Steve to justify the switch.
That said, if I was to go this route, I'd probably just ditch 12 TET alltogether for something more adventurous, like just intonation.
