We are proud to present for auction a historically significant guitar of which there is no equal and is absolutely a one-of-a-kind.
Here is the ORIGINAL Prototype 7 String guitar as designed by the mystical and magical guitar wizard and modern-day Mozart of melody & noise, STEVE VAI. (Credit also to the fine folks at Ibanez for helping Steve realize his vision of what would become a new entity in the evolution of the guitar.)
We are auctioning this guitar on behalf of Steve's long-time engineer, Richard Landers, whom he gifted it to in 1990. According to Richard, the guitar was received with much appreciation and stored away and has now only seen the light of day some 20+ years later. He never intended on selling it but is now only considering it's sale in order to raise funds for some medical needs within the family.
Consider this an amazing opportunity to get a guitar which will only increase in value and significance, as well as a chance to give some support to someone connected to the brotherhood of music recording artistry.
The note inscribed on the back of the guitar from Steve to Richard, as well as the photo of the Letter of Authenticity, tells the story of the guitar's origins and should answer a majority of questions as to the simple biography of the guitar.
The guitar is conservatively painted fluorescent yellow, pink and green and would be perfect for those not wanting to bring any attention to themselves or for the "Shyboy" who is self-conscious of their playing.
However, the guitar would be equally at home nestled in a bed of Corinthian leather pillows surrounded in a mahogony-framed glass case hanging in the estate room of a Russian billionaire's house who wanted to brag about it over some Vodka and red caviar with Vladimir Putin.
Seriously though, note some of the unique features of the guitar. The bridge of the guitar is not one piece, but actually TWO bridges which have been cut and put together to form what is probably the first 7-string locking tremolo. The nut has been fashioned in this way also. You can can see the seams in the close-up photos. Also, the 21-24 frets are scalloped which I understand are not standard on any model Universe guitar.
Of the hand-full of signed and personal Steve Vai guitars that have come available for sale over the years, this one has to be near Holy Grail status and presents a very unique opportunity that one should not miss. This is THE first guitar that was materialized from the mind of the man that pioneered the 7-string solid-body guitar revolution, which is now considered standard in the metal music world.
