There was a bus fire. There was a video of it knocking about somewhere. Perhaps Mikey could confirm if the guitar in the auction is for real.

Yes its 100% real
the guy- rich- who is selling it worked for Steve for around 10 years ..infact (if im not mistaken) he used to run this site before Mikey took over and made it what it is today.

So if you ever see stuff being sold from him you know its going to be genuine Vai stuff. :wink:

It is against the board to publish ebay links, maybe you didn't read that part.
Btw, awesome guitar! It's like an historic guitar.

no

"Evo's original neck was broken in an onstage accident in Melbourne, Australia in February 1997."

the neck selling was busted onstage in Seattle during a battle with Zakk Wylde in 1993....

i believe evos neck that was broken had the vine inlay too?

Damn! If had known this earlier I would have bid on that PAF pickup that was in steve's floral Jem during his DLR days. I thought it could be a fake so I didn't bid on it. I think it sold for $100 or so. :cry:

I believe "battle" refers more to a guitar playing duel....
