Hi everyone! I would like to know when Mr Vai began using the 21 to 24 fret scalloping. I bought a jem70v and scalloped it myself 21 through 24. It feels good and it does make the tone clearer. Thanks for reading.

:) Didn't mean it that way.
I can't recal him ussing it on any of his guitars before the Ibanez Jem's appeared. I guess while designing the Jem he wanted it on the prototype and he liked it, so it made it to the final design. That's my guess..

No problem. I am still grateful. Have you seen the YouTube clips from 1985? I really like the sound he gets on that stratocaster. The video quality is bad though so I can't see if it was scalloped. That is why I asked.

Are you refering to the GIT vid?
Check here on vai.com his guitars. There you can see his pre- jem guitars.

No scalloped frets as far as I can see.
