i don't see why it wouldn't be. even if for some reason it wasn't, it's still a vai signature guitar and gets the prestige treatment.

Yes it is, although it doesn't really mean anything.

It sort of does. The bodies and neck are still CNC made, but they will have much stricter quality control, and better quality wood selections than non-Prestige guitars, and are finished to higher standards than a regular Ibanez in Indonesia.

It doesn't, it's marketting. Japanese built signature models were always "Prestige" level. The TJC stamp doesn't mean any more than a 2004 that doesn't have it, in fact it began the demise of true Prestige quality finishing.

What Rich said. It's just another way of saying "Made in Japan".
