Ibanez UV77SVR Limited Edition "Silver" Steve Vai Electric Guitar


2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the release of Steve Vai's landmark solo album, Passion & Warfare. Critically acclaimed and publicly celebrated for its unique artistic vision and sheer musical muscle, Passion & Warfare, is now considered the milestone that marks the arrival of the 7-string solid body electric guitar.

This 7-string guitar, which Steve dubbed the 'Universe', was showcased prominently on Passion & Warfare, and opened the door for guitarists of every musical background to expand their artistic horizons.Initially adopted by like-minded guitar virtuosos, Steve's vision of a new musical landscape took a turn that perhaps even he hadn't anticipated when, in the hands of Korn and other purveyors of 90's new metal, the 7-string became mandatory equipment for anyone engaging in the genre.

Since that time, Steve, along with countless other 7-string enthusiasts have continued to incorporate the Universe into a myriad of musical settings that have both inspired and challenged the world.

The third in this series of celebratory guitars looks to the traditional role silver plays in observance of a 25th anniversary, marrying it with the color combination reminiscent of the custom 7-string that Steve used when touring with Whitesnake, immediately following the release of Passion & Warfare.
