It's Yamaha's take on better intonation. You can also see them the first Yamaha Frank Gambale model.

Re: Vai Wavy fret

fret wave system, I don't think he uses it anymore. It's half a feiten system, basically Steve doesn't use that anymore either.

Re: Vai Wavy fret

Yeah, it wasn't Evo. The vai.com forum could probably tell you date installed, the first time he tuned it, etc

I think you'd be better off with a good setup, personally.

It was FLO in the picture

Quite recent picture, he only added that Green tape to the sustainer in the last 2 years

Other then Mikey, I don't see much that helpful there anymore. Much more info here. It seems the vai forum at least over the last year or so has been over run with kids asking some of the most basic vai questions and nobody can even give a correct answer on it, half the responses I've seen are just somebody else guessing just as much. I joined the Vai forum first, then came here and learned way more much faster, know I go back there and just really wonder who is posting some of that information.
