Re: Steve Vai before Ibanez?
He played a Charvel Strat at some point. Green meenie, it's a pretty famous guitar. Gotta wonder if that thing still see's any play time or it's retired forever. I know he played a few Jackson San Dimas era guitars. The one from Crossroads is a Chandler though. I was told he briefly endorsed them, but I can't find anything online to authentic that claim. Finally, he did play a few guitars from Performance parts that he put up together after all of his guitars were stolen. Eventually, performance would have Joe Despagni make him a few guitars, including the Flame guitar he played with David Lee Roth (you can see it in Going Crazy)
