    Thought some of you Jemsiters might find this cool. My grandmother recently passed and all of Vai's direct family was at the funeral (they are my cousins). He mailed me this for my birthday and as a condolence gift.

    A month ago i went to the NGW where steve did a 3 hour clinic/masterclass. We finished classes at 12 for an hour break before he came, but I went to where he was going to be an hour early. I was looking through the door and then I saw him and my heart dropped. I watched him do soundcheck and...

    Most of you will have probably read this but here it is anyway, straight from 'the horses mouth': Ibanez Counterfeit Warning Some auction websites currently have hundreds of instruments that look like Ibanez guitars and/or feature our trademarked Ibanez headstocks and logos. These guitars do...

    I find it really amazing how different some of the swirls are, and I thought it would be great to start a thread to see if we can find all the PCM out there. Well at least try, so lets start to hunt down those 271 PMC JEMs... Here is mine, which I got back 1992, I am original owner.

A...

    Greetings folks, Steve Vai here. I have to say that I'm embarrased that this is my first time visiting the Jemsite. I'm stunned at the dedication and passion that you all have for the stuff on this site. I really enjoy it myself and feel as if I just discovered a little treasure. Reading...

    The PMC is my second favorite swirl of all the Jems so far, and I've found that except for a select few, most of them seem pretty drab and not very inspired.. to me, that is. I've taken a look at Herc's PMCs and they seem a lot more vibrant in terms of color and more impressive. Do not get me...
