maybe...but I love the way it looks, sounds and plays. I use it when I get into my Vandenberg mood to play Wait or Burning Heart!!!

Olie,
Actually, I think that first Vandenberg record was recorded with a Gibson Les Paul Heritage 80. That's the guitar he's holding in the shot on the album and I seem to remember reading something to that effect...

Now, if you were talking "Still Of The Night"... Wait... Was that recorded by Sykes? OK, maybe "Slip Of The Tounge"...

Adrian Vandenberg wrote all of the songs for Slip of the tongue but the guitar was actualy recorded by Steve Vai. After the success of 1987 Adrian felt he wanted to raise his game for the follow up album and the poor guy injured his arm/hand whilst practicing and getting ready to go into the studio to record what he'd written. With all the studio/record company deadlines there was no time to wait for it to heal and it's a feather in Adrians cap that everyone concerned thought only Vai could replace him. This lead to Vai going out on tour with that album and appearing on-stage alonside Adrian.

Dude, Slip of the tongue is in my top 5 "all time" favourite albums!

What are talking about Willis...??? Did I ever mention anything about Vandenberg recording with the Peavey??? well for your enlightenment Adje AKA Adrian started out playing Les Pauls excusively, all through his 3 albums "vandenberg"
"Heading for the storm" and "alibi" he played guitar on nothing but that. it wasn't until he joined Whitesnake that he was first approached by Fernandes guitars for an endorsement deal a few were produced mostly for the Japanese market and then that endorsement fell apart and that is when peavey approached him about a signature model and that is how the peavey Vandenberg was born!!!

80'S Gutars 101 is over class dismiss!!!

Re: Peavey Vandenberg Thoughts...

Olie,
No you never mentioned recording. I just wanted to bring up his Les Paul and that seemed like the logical place. I was facinated at one time for the tone on the first Vandenberg record. I love that record. The other 2 are OK but the first one, kick ass. But I always assumed that the guitar he's holding was a late 50's LP. I just recently read it was a H-80. I have one of those, the are pretty amazing LP's...

Sorry to get off subject just wanted to make that rant!
I'm from Chicago and work in the loop and I would have to disagree. There are idiots everywhere, not just Chicago. For the most part here, most people are the opposite of what you experienced. I would have to say though, that most people from NC are very laid back so wherever you go, you may feel everyone is bad compared to where you are. I have family in NC.

That's crazy talk! The original vandy hums are the most powerful, punchy pickups ever! I had a few vandys in my time and no pickup has ever compared to them. i won't buy another vandy if the pickups aren't original.
