Hey folks,

Mikey here from Vai.com.

I also manage Tony MacAlpine. Tony is selling two of his guitars (see my other FS post for the other.)

This one is his Carvin T-Mac VII 7-string.

Tony has used and owned this guitar for years, and was the guitar played by Tony on the Steve Vai Live At The Astoria DVD. It's been Tony's road guitar for tours since 2001 with Vai and Planet X. Tony has played this guitar in front of hundreds of thousands of people.

The guitar is essentially a TMAC7C - based on the Carvin DC727 - with Tony's signature touches: A Floyd Rose tremolo with locking nut and sperzel tuners.

Neck-thru alder body. Although it looks purple in the pictures, it's actually green/purple/blue holoflash flake. It tends to look purple when photographed with a flash. Comes in a case.

Guitar is in great condition, with very little wear - a small ding on the back, but that's about it. Apart from some other light finish scratches, this guitar is in incredibly good shape for a touring guitar. Tony doesn't really throw his guitars around much, so they tend to stay in great shape for a while.

Tony is upgrading his home studio and is selling this axe to cover the costs of some new gear.

Tony is happy to sign the axe for the buyer. We can also provide a photo of Tony with the guitar, along with a letter of authenticity signed by Tony.

This guitar will go on the 'bay on Sunday the 19th - but can be had before that for $4000 plus insured shipping. We may consider a combo deal with the 6-string that we're also selling. PM me for details.

Attached are some quick photos. Will add video stills of Tony with the guitar also.
