I was just curious if anyone knew the brand of the guitar Steve said was his first ever in the harmony hut tour.

Actually, Steve's very first one was a Teisco Del Rey.

Then he had a couple other guitars that people gave him, like the white double-neck Ventura SG (from Joe Satriani, if I'm not mistaken).

But yes, the first guitar that his family bought him was a Fender Stratocaster, aka the "Sticker Strat", which you can see in the "Steve's Guitars" section of vai.com (go to the 2nd page on "Other Guitars"). It received a few modifications through the years, though.

"Anyway, the next day I was at another friend’s house, Richard Jankowski, and he had a cheap guitar on the wall of his bedroom. It was very cool, red with a whole lot of buttons. He said he would sell it to me for $5. I don’t know how I got the money but I did. I didn’t dare tell anybody that I was going to play the guitar."
