I think the coolest guitar is the Tom Anderson guitar that predated his Ibanez guitars. He may be playing them still if they could afford him.

PS Those Performance guitars are pretty damn cool as well.

If it was an option I would have gone with the white triple necked one. But I had to go with Flo and the sustainer. The way he uses it on the Astoria DVD on Whispering a Prayer is unbelieveable. :shock:

I would have like to have seen this marble finish on the early UV's. Maybe that's why I mack-tacked it.

The Floral was used during the Skyscarper era and is the ONLY one that had pyramids. I like the vines, but the pyramid floral Jem is ONE of ONE. We wants it precious.

In what songs did he use a 7 string?And why was it called a era I never heard any tracks with one in it.Usally now a days 7 strings are refered to for Metal and Vai has a touch of Metal but it's not there fully.

The entire solo track of "For the Love of God" for one. "The Riddle" for another. And It's ALL over the Whitesnake album. We call it an era because he sort of stopped using them on a regular basis. He still has them and uses them to record, but I don't see one on the Astoria DVD, and I'm not even sure he's toured with one in the last 10 years.

While 7-string guitars existed before Vai ever designed one, he's the first guy to have them mass-produced. They weren't really a massive "hit" at the time, but there were a couple of guys that really liked what they could do...
Head and Munky of Korn.
I guess they are really to blame for the drop-tuned insanity that now exists. But it never would have happened without Steve...

Steve did 7 strings LONG before Head and Munky were even relevant, let alone influential. Steve got the idea from jazz guys who were using them for basslines while chording. Jazz based 7's have been around for a long time.

And if you want to hand out credit for drop tunings, you can look long BEFORE Pearl Jam(who were long before Korn) to KING'S X.
