Ibanez has at last released the Steve Vai Passion and Warfare 25th Anniversary Universe guitars that we saw back in January at the NAMM show. They are Japanese-made 7 string guitars to mark 25 years since the arrival of the solid-body 7 string electric guitar on the scene. They all come equipped with DiMarzio Blaze pickups and a LoPro Edge 7 bridge, old-school square heel neck joint and those disappearing pyramid (why did they not call that a Disappyramid? Seems like low hanging fruit to me.) inlays.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Passion & Warfare, Ibanez is proud to release three very special limited edition Steve Vai “Universe” guitars. Critically acclaimed and publicly celebrated for its unique artistic vision and sheer musical muscle, Passion & Warfare is now considered the milestone that marked the arrival of the 7-string solid body electric guitar.
