What really annoys me is that the Piano Reductions CD is sold separately, as opposed to being sold together with one (or two) of the other CDs yet to come. I always thought that the rest of the CDs would come in two instalments (3+2), but I highly doubt that after this one the rest of the CDs will come in a set of four. It's just that the posting charges to Finland ain't actually cheap.

But anyway, I've already pre-ordered

First thing I did when I came home was unscrewing the bottom and there it was, sitting there for all this time! Thank you Steve, this was really a perfect joke and a cool surprise!

Hey cacophony,
I bought the box 3 years ago, being worried that I would be too late to get one of the "limited" edition of only 10k.....to my surprise, apparently there are still boxes for sale....check the vai.com online shop.

And what the secret is......well, I think that until now no one has revealed the "secret" yet on the board (try a search), so I am definitely not going to break this, my friend......sorry 8)

Sorry to bust your illusion. It has been revealed time and time again right here in the very thread. Too bad, but I guess that's just the way it goes.

Ok, ok, Sonny.. 8) I admit that I did not read all 18 pages of the thread (or at least do no remember all posts.....). Don't you find it surprising that, after 3 years, there a still boxes of the 10k edition available? I wouldn't have expected that......

Yeah well, I guess we can't all be die-hard fans! I ordered mine the minute they were available for preorder, so I'm home safe. I'll leave it up to the individual to decide... But I suggest people buy it! It's so cool!!!

Yes, of course, Casper, everyone has free choice. It's just that I didn't expect that there aren't 10,000 die-hards around the globe that desperately want such a collector's item......on the other hand, this forum has "only" some 6400 registered users.......

Just got my boxset for Christmas. Too Cool!!! I've been hanging to get this thing since it was released, but just never got around to it and my wife, the lovely woman that she is secretly ordered it for me. What a woman!!!!

I got the first 5 discs, and will be ordering the Piano Reductions. What other releases are expected over the years? Will Real Illusions be part of the boxset?

No. Real Illusions: Reflections is Steve's next studio release in February 2005. It's not part of the Secret Jewel Box.

However...

VAI Piano Reductions was #6. #7 and #8 are Alcatrazz: Panic Jungle [Live in Japan]. #9 is Steve Vai and The Classified and #10 is Hot Chunks. Hope that helps. :D You also get the "100-page colorful booklet" once all 10 discs are ordered. Not sure how that works exactly.
