Here's what Steve says about the guitar: "I received two DNA guitars for my personal collection. One was stolen from my studio, and I used the other in some recordings for a while and then let it live at Guitar Center Hollywood for their display for years. In an attempt to raise money for a sick friend who has made tremendous contributions to the music industry and actually gave me my start by releasing 'Flex-Able', 'Passion and Warfare', 'Sex And Religion' and 'Alien Love Secrets', the guitar is being auctioned off and 100% of the income will go to his support. If one of these guitars pop up in a hundred years from now and they scrape the DNA to make a Steve Vai clone, perhaps that guy can get his music on the radio."

Steve most recently used this guitar extensively during rehearsals for the Zappa Plays Zappa tour, but decided not to take it on the road where it may get damaged before the auction.

I brokered the sale. It went for $27,000.

Thanks for the answer. That's a nice chunk of change, and for a friend to boot.

How is this friend?


I had the Flexable LP, but it disappeared from my collection in 1988.
