There is no truth to any part of this rumor.

Re: 7 string universe #000005. know anything about it?

got the photos - thanks.

Looking into it.

By the way - the logo on the headstock - if you run your finger over it, does it stick out from the lacquer (like a sticker), or is it smooth and covered by the lacquer?

It's an unusual guitar, I can say that for sure.

Cheers,

Mikey

Re: 10 things you'll realize when you release an album

Mikey, I have to say, calling someone ignorant, insulting, disrespectful and being part of the graduate decline of artists, and calling their posts clueless, is rather disrespectful and insulting in itself. It's just someones opinion. It's not yours, obviously, and I don't agree either, but it's no...

Re: 10 things you'll realize when you release an album

Non-commercial music does sell. It just doesn't shift in numbers like mainstream pop acts, and this is why people sharing that non-commercial music without the consent of the owner of the work is particularly damaging to the artist. It's damaging to all artists, but the rate of return is higher with...

Re: 10 things you'll realize when you release an album

9. ... quite a few of your online acquaintances don't legally obtain music at all (they might make an exception for their favorite band). Sorry, can't help myself, but... if you think you're going to be a billionaire after selling one album -- you're mistaken. It's not what it used to be 20-30 year...

Re: Vai.com News | End of an era

Thanks to everyone for their kind comments. It's been a fun 7 years. It's been a real pleasure meeting many of you in person on the road. I'd like to thank Jeroen Noordhuis for all his support and hard work. Having the opportunity to work with him has been one of the real treats of my time here. See...

Re: "Live In Minneapolis: Where The Wild Things Are" VINYL!!

Good question. I don't believe so, although there may be something in place to prevent people from buying up huge amounts of the first signed and numbered 777 copies... but buying a couple won't be a problem.
