In fact I am yet to meet even a single guitar dude who does not know about Steve Vai - even 16 year old kids with squires know of Steve.
What I'm trying to say is that in the UK Steve is way more infamous for shreding than the Yng man himself and absolutely every guitar dude knows of him.

Dave on the other hand......... Dave who?

And just want to add that even the UV and the K7 are made to order, they are not in general production like say the V7 is so 7 string signature from an unknown player is never going to hapen.

Oh, you'd be surprised. I've met other guitar players (in my school) that have never heard about Steve Vai. It's all Hammett, Slash and Green Day.

Dave won't get a sig 7 any time soon. He's not very famous (yet ). I personally think that these type of questions can be avoided if Ibanez had a custom shop.

Re: Dave Weiners Guitars!!!

Well, a guitar doesnt necessary sales because of the endorser, take the j customs and prestiges for example, if the DW signature model haves cool specs, why people wouldn't buy it?

I'm not saying that it won't sell. I'm saying Dave's not good enough for Ibanez to have them make a DW signature. Let's look at it this way. Ibanez already has a bunch of 7 string models, two of them which are endorsed by popular or influential players. I also would like to see a DW signature, but I just can't see Ibanez making it. As for sales, only time will tell.

dave is by far a more talented guitar player than either munky or head... check out his website...look at his videos. the great dr. Vai would not have chosen dave as he did without belief that the guy was a great player. and for the guy who compared steve vai to yngwie...steve vai's music has feeling an emotion to it. all yngwie does is play arpeggios at the speed of sound.

ok, i agree with your intentions, but you're trying to force your opinion here and people aren't buying it. do we want to see a dave weiner signature; hell yes. is it possible, maybe, but i don't think it will happen just yet. he isn't recognized enough. think about who is endorsed by ibanez, we all know who they are. when you see a "dave weiner D7" in a magazine, people will be saying ,"who?" he's got support for sure around the ibanez crowd and some of vai's fans, but until he's able to sell his brand of music without vai at his side, i don't see a signature thing happening.
also, i am not an yngwie fan in any way, shape, or form, but i'm sick of people complaining about his speed when they can't even touch that.

Re: Dave Weiners Guitars!!!

while i do believe you have a valid point, im sure that daves popularity would increase if a signature guitar was released. instead of saying "dave who?" i think it would be more of a "let me check this guy out"

and i guess i did dis yngwie...he is a hell of a guitar player. i could never even wish to be that fast...i just personally dont feel his music has much heart put into it

Re: Dave Weiners Guitars!!!

i notice almost every 7 string discussion turns to baggen on head and munky... why do we always have to bag on them, just because the music they play is simple does mean they suk, and even if they do, why should we care?

Re: Dave Weiners Guitars!!!

For the record, I love Dave and would be one of the first to buy his guitar if IBZ decided to give him a sig deal. (I LOVE 7's)

Now let's ignore the whole "Dave Weiner" part and say Ibanez released guitars with the same specs and colors as the ones Dave has; just the fact that they are seven string guitars is a big strike against these guitars.

Why? Well, it's common knowledge that seven string guitars don't sell nearly as well as six stringers. Not to mention they already have other seven string guitars that are in production - UV, K7, 1527, J-Customs, etc. Ibanez wouldn't spend more money on another line that won't sell quickly.

Re: Dave Weiners Guitars!!!

why not? theyve already made all of those, and they still make them, not realizing that they dont sell as well
