Steve Vai owned guitar?

#1 Post by Castellanelli » Sun Sep 10, 2017 8:49 am

Hello everybody,

I got an Ibanez in an auction that was owned by Neal Schon. It is an ibanez Universe from around 90-91..the black one with green...but this one appears to be some kind of prototype cause the dots are white...the rest is the same as the production model....it was told to me that this guitar is the guitar that Schon used on the Hardline`s Double Eclipse album and this guitar was a gift from Vai to Schon as its stated on the album`s credits.

Someone can confirm that? Maybe the admin?

Thanx a lot

This is why you get the provenance verified before you buy the gear- unless you pay half of retail used and not inflated auction nonsense

This one will be a tough one to find out- story is plausible- but getting the actual physical documentation and provenance unless the auction came from Neal himself might be tough to get big dollar value for the guitar in the future

that's the entire goal in people overpaying for guitars at auction- buy it- hold it- auction it off and hope it doubles like Claptons two guitars

I'd have to see pics of the guitar before I can say for sure.

Jeries, pls read my original post...I said that it was owned by Schon, BUT the history behind is that the guitar is the guitar that was owned by Vai...etc etc....need to know if the ‘’VAI owned’’ part it’s true....I am just curious.
