's own rainbows for a bit, and just aquired the alder-bodied ibanez us custom shop js
prototype. And i know a few of petrucci's own ibanez's were mentioned around here, after he auctioned them off, but i can't recall if anyone actually bought one. The upshot is, we know these things are out there. You may have misread the thread, but i think what you're being called out on here is, as far as vai guitars go, this one's pretty incidental, and not really worth bothering with compared to, say, one of the ones vai's taken on tour with him for the last couple years.
Anyway, the point remains- guitars with specs like this aren't that uncommon- if you want to sell it as a "vai" guitar, you need more documentation than a pic or two.
