How long do you give before there are post bitching about it?
He ain't bitching because he's RIGHT. I'm surprised he actually waited this long.
In fact, I think we ALL should just chip in our life savings to Vai before he starts releasing his own signiature Honeywell fan, SWIRLED no less.
You know, Ibanez actually could have made some money off of this if they didn't charge an arm and a leg for something that probably cost them a whopping total of $.03 to make (and that's including what they charge the person that they're underpaying to make it). If it were more reasonably priced I might have bought it. But, they just had to take something they already make, double it, slap Vai's name on it, and charge $200.
Why, oh WHY, would you buy this when you could buy other pedals (Damage Control Solid Metal, Line 6 DL-4, need I go on?)? I'll tell you why, because of a little label with the letter V A I. And we've got a bunch of mindless fanboys (not all of you, but there are a number of them) who will buy anything with that annoying logo slapped onto it.
I'm not saying Vai's products (or his playing for that matter) are bad, the JEM is one of the best, if not THE best, guitars I've ever played, and the Legacy is a beast. But this, and the Bad Horsie pedals are... well... horse crap. Okay, I'll give the original Bad Horsie some credit, but seriously... the Little Alligator? Come on.
