Happy Happy Merry Merry

Hey folks, Happiest of Holidays and beyond beyond to you all. 

Below is a lovely and uplifting story I wanted to share with you. 

Peace and love and good happiness stuff.

In a Mothers Womb

In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: 

“Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”

Bo’s back!!

Great news everyone: Bo, Steve’s mirrored JEM that went missing this past weekend, has been found left in the bushes at the gate on Steve’s property. We do not have any more details on how it got there and will perhaps forever remain a mystery. The entire Vai camp is grateful for all the amazing outpouring of support we have seen regarding this issue over the last week.

Steve’s Ibanez Jem “BO” Stolen

Steve Vai’s guitar “Bo” was stolen earlier today. It’s a mirror Ibanez JEM with blue LED’s, a Sustainer system, and a red laser built into the headstock/neck. The forearm contour is also cracked/distressed a bit.  If you hear something or think you’ve seen it, please contact us. Thanks.

. Bo’s serial # F0006311 Here are some physical traits unique to Bo:

-Bo has blue LED fret dots and a red laser in the headstock tip. They are turned on by an on/off switch and powered by battery.

-Bo has deep scratches on the armrest area, and the mirrored surface shows wear.

-Bo is equipped with a Fernandes Sustainer FSK-401 system, with an extra sustainer control knob and sustainer control switches.

-The mirror pickguard has been cracked noticeably around the volume knob.

-The guitar is a LACS model with an Ibanez Lo Pro Edge tremolo- all production BRMR Jems had the Edge Pro tremolo.

-Bo’s neck was broken in 2013 behind the nut, and was repaired by Ibanez. The neck is super thin with a “skunk stripe” walnut strip, while all production BRMR Jem necks were of a 5 piece design.

-The guitar has a piece of green Gaff tape on the side of the left arm rest with its name “Bo” written on it in marker.

-Bo has a prototype Ibanez UTA whammy bar made of aluminum.

-The pickups have black gaff tape on them to keep the strings from getting caught.

-Bo is equipped with an Ibanez Backstop device, located in the tremolo cavity of the guitar
