Say When Steve Vai Is Dead *Steve if you read this, i dont mean anything by it, its hypothetical.* i know his secret, he is an alien :lol:

Evo goes for auction, starts bidding at say $250,000 and keeps rising. How much would you bid?

i would make a bid of about $1.5 Million for it, its worth it.

Let's see.....

(1) very used, very abused (but lovingly) JEM7VWH with it's 3rd neck. Case has about 1,000,000 miles on it. Chips all over the body. Neck joint has severe crack. Sounds great and plays great. Used on many Steve Vai records and live performances (list available upon request).

I'm in for $1000, with case.
Of course Roland will beat *any* of us at that auction.
:D

I'd love to own Evo. but like any sane person, I'd bid what I could afford.

If i was worth millions of dollars, I'd happily dish out 20 grand for it. Why? Mainly because its probably one of the top 5 most important things in the history of Vai's musical career, and as a fan, I'd treasure it.



However, I wouldn't want it so that I could throw it around and use as a casual player...it would be a viewing piece more than anything: a historical item meant to be preserved as is.

But hey, I'm the kind of person that gets a kick out of memorabilia. When satch was in Toronto for the extremist tour, I got to keep one of greg bissonette's drum sticks from the set...I still keep it in a safe place!

if anyone had a copy of evo that wasnt steves i'd reckon it'd fetch about 400 bucks on ebay....that thing is falling apart. but evo is like jimmy page's number one and i'd probably bet as much as i could afford

My thoughts exacly.

Were at a point where we realize the importance of history. A year or so ago I was at the Hard Rock in Vegas and saw one of Hendrix' Strats and the thing gave me goosebumps just looking at it.

I dunno really...part of me wants to own a piece of history but then again I wouldn't own a guitar I wouldn't play (and I probably wouldn't play it because it's in such bad condition). I'd probably pay about £1000 for it though. :)
