Vai's sticker strat.

I'm sure there are many many threads on this already but I searched and searched and searched and nothin'

Anywho, does anyone have exact details on this strat?
Like what are the single coil pickups? (I know the humbucker's an X2N) and what are the electronics that have been added to it?
I'm really interested in this guitar in hopes to one day make a replica...or as close as I can get as those stickers won't be easy to find.

Thanks all.

That has no information on the guitar, and I've checked there before, hell I've spent many evenings just looking through that section of Mr Vai's site!

Re: Vai's sticker strat.

Not sure about the neck and middle pickups but that X2N has been in there since his Zappa days. I would guess that the in between switching with bridge and middle splits the X2N. If not the X2N would just overpower the single coil. I'm assuming those single coils are pretty hot. That X2N is one beast of a pickup. If I'm not mistaken he recorded flexable using that guitar and not the green meanie as many think. Could be wrong about that though. Although in the liner notes he says he played a fender strat into his old carvin XB 100.

Re: Vai's sticker strat.

I would imagine that also, most guitars that I've seen have split the humbucker if selecting more than one pickup with the humbucker active.

So noone knows what the extra wiring/switches do?
