As Steve Vai said in various interviews, our DNA "passes" or incorporates to the guitar, it is true, I just purchased this instrument and I'm very satisfied with her. It's very nice to play, affordable comparing to the white one (JEM7V) and virtually the same instrument and very cute piece of wood and hardware. Love that!!!
As in the picture, my DNA is, little by little, incorporating to the instrument (notice the arm changing colour to dark), the arm is getting my sweat, cell, etc. I'm in a state of "honey moon" with her: I recommend this lovable guitar and I'm having wonderfull time playing. Well done Mr. Vai and Ibanez!!!!
