I am bringing it to the Evo Experience here in Ridgefield CT, Next tuesday!! I am curious to see what he thinks? I have another surprise guitar as well, I think equally as cool.

new rear photo of revised electronics cavity, new trem block (stainless steel) and it is massive!!) and the locally infamous meteor embedded in the guitar forever, the idea being that this piece of meteor (fragment) has travelled the universe and been who know where, and is now a part of this guitar. It was the final piece of this puzzle.

so my dream came true..... I got 2 of my guitars in Vai's hands to sign!!!! He took the 8 for a test run. There is no better feeling than having the guy who inspired the guitar in the first place to put his seal of approval on it.

I have a couple others but they are blurry , my camera wasn't cooperating, I was blessed to get this one. When I realized they didn't come out I almost had an aneurysm. But, at least one was good, I was really lucky for that. I wish I had more time but he was rushing to get to the soundcheck. :( I waited too long because I didn't want to hog all his time, so I let everyone else go, get their pictures with him and autographs, when they were done I grabbed the guitars. By that point he started heading into the soundcheck so I only had a couple minutes. Nice guys finish last...... oh well what is important is that he saw them, and I got the couple of pics I did with him, and of course the autographs on them!!!

Those are beautiful additions to your collection. I'm sure you are enjoying the fruits of your labor. Congratulations.

I think the addition of the meteor is a nice touch.
