I do not know when this guitar was built, but I if I had seen it before I would have remembered. Sorry if I'm out of the loop.
Does anybody know anything about this guitar?
Something about it looks "odd" (a better picture might help clear that up) but if it is a fundamentally well-constructed guitar, odd is not a problem.

But does it djent? Do we also need typical ERG comments as "I'd totally buy that if it had an ebony board"?

Personally I think that's amazing and would love to hear what Vai does with it...

The scale length looks pretty crazy to me, I'd guess 28.5"-30", and it's HSH with a lo-pro! Pretty cool hand-piano.
I think you are probably right about the scale length.

If Ibanez releases an 8-string with a Lo-Pro 8 (ever), yes, you will hear comments like that. ;)

I agree. :D

That thing is pretty old, it's from 2006. The bridge is two Lo Pro's welded together.
Thank you! I may not have looked at "Steve's Guitars" within the last 12 years, but I think I have. Either way, I never knew he had an 8-string with a welded-together Lo-Pro 8.
