So i went to Guitar Center the other day with a few gift cards, after picking up a new distortion pedal, i went and checked out the used section. it was then that I fell in love. hanging on the wall was an Ibanez Universe, signed by Steve Vai. so i played it, and i knew I had to have it. a few texts later, i got it put on layaway. But this is where the amazing-ness of it is, as my mom went to put more of a payment on it, the guy that traded it in was there, and told here the story of it. Steve Vai gets whatever guitar he wants from Ibanez, and when he gets bored or tired with them, he signs the headstock and gives them away. this happens to be the prototype of the Ibanez universe and its exactly like the mass produced one, so i'd say he liked it.


TL;DR: I own the prototype for Steve Vai's seven string guitar.

Review: Since i just got it today, I haven't had much time to play it other than a short time in guitar center and a few minutes today, but i can already tell i will have a hard time putting it down later on. the pickups are clear and don't get muddy. After a quick setup, i got the action crazy low, so its good for what it was made for, shredding. the neck feels incredible, and the AANJ is amazing as well. All in all, this guitar is going to make all of my others jealous since they won't be played anymore.

also, sorry for crap phone pictures.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.
