I've been respecting your request for no emails that aren't emergencies but of course I wish you a speedy recovery.

I think she's always been a pretty serious minded player, even in the really old videos of her playing classical pieces.

Before anyone asks, no I couldn't play that on guitar

Well that sounds better than what I assumed the real reason was (blue Aston wrapped around a pole somewhere).

Huh? Other than the Genesis, find me an MIJ at that price. And for a next step, MIJ sigs are at _least_ $1000 more, but closer to 1500-2000 more.

I don't know who she is either, but my immediate feeling after seeing the pictures, the colors chosen and the dedication to his wife, is that these are aimed more at the ever growing wave of hot female players, while the JEM would still be considered a guys guitar. I don't want on personally, but if I had a girlfriend who was a really great player, I'd be interested in getting one for her.


I could absolutely see Tina S playing one of these.
Yvette Young : guitarist from covet. Plays lots of alternative tuning tapping stuff with odd meters and poly rhythms

https://youtu.be/_Q1-ETuBg5A

Plays modded ibanez Talmans. Popular newer guitar player alongside people like polyphia who just got MIJ sigs last year.

Sort of shreddy but different. Girl guitar hero?

I'd like to know if Rich punched a hole in the wall, or if he jumped up in joy and punched a hole in the ceiling? i.e. is the switch to the PIA expected to be a cause for celebration or commiseration?

About now I'm feeling kinda like I did when Petrucci left Ibanez for EBMM!!!

Would I replace my JEMs with a PIA? No. For me there's no association for that guitar with anything I like musically of Vai's. I'm interested to see if others feel the same and so for me it'll be interesting to see if Vai's "legacy" is enough to sell this guitar, or whether it'll actually be doing better than the JEM has in the last few years!
This will be quite the litmus test of Vai fanboyism.
