    Live streamed for his 60th birthday. About as close to the Alien Love Secrets power trio style we're going to get.
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I was a fan of the Carvin X100b amps and have owned two in the past. I need another 50-100w amp like I need a hole in the head, but the Carvin x1 pedal might fill a niche in my gear. It supposed to be the preamp section of an x100b in pedal form, with a few goodies like speaker emulated out and...

    Posted on FB 20-30min ago "We just completed a comprehensive library on - The Official Steve Vai Website of all of the guitars that Steve has ever owned. It contains a wealth of new information! You can comment on there as well, and Steve will be checking it out periodically and...
  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I thought for sure he was going to end up with a signature Marshall or Friedman amp, so I'm surprised to see him with something like this. He definitely gets some killer tones out of the set-up and I'm still enough of a Vai fanboy to think "If he's digging this, it's got to be pretty decent." as...
  5. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Selling an Ibanez Universe UV7BK Green Dot. Made in 1990 according to the serial on the backplate. Made in the Hoshino Gakki factory, Japan. It is in excellent condition; neck and headstock are pristine, a nicely patterned dark rosewood fretboard, plenty of life left in the frets, very...

    Does anyone know the make/model? I'm pretty sure it's charvel but I wouldn't mine have one of those guitars.
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Outside of Josh, I'm not sure who has experience in this realm. Do we have many "Neo-Classical Shredders"? :shrug: Anyway, I'm looking at doing a number of Flute (or Violin) & Cello Duets with one of the kids. So I'm looking at a tuning that has a Low C. Right now, the only option is to...

    Just saw this on Jemsite FB Group: Browsed through it as its super long and seems to be more talk than play. Its weird to see Steve without a Jem :D

    I guess his guitar wasn't ready yet or something, so a fan offered him his Parker Fly. Some clams in there, but pretty impressive for a guitar that's likely pretty foreign to him.
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anyone take a guess? FX Board? Seems to be on top of the Amp right (left to us) to Steve on the video

    I know that's kind of a long shot question, but what would you consider to be the easiest song of his to learn even though nothing he does is remotely easy

    Haven't seen him since the '01 G3 tour with Petrucci and with it being the P&W Anniversary show, I'm stoked! I know he's playing a few other tunes to open the show, but I haven't looked at what they are nor have watched a single video from this tour so I'll have some surprises. I was going...

  18. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Not just Gravity Storms with new housings, but new pickups altogether. Dark Matter 2 Bridge | DiMarzio Dark Matter 2 Neck | DiMarzio Dark Matter 2 Middle | DiMarzio They're all low output ceramic pickups (almost like a throwback to when he was using PAF Pros), and all use the virtual vintage...
