Steve Vai’s practice rig is not your average bedroom amplifier and cheap guitar. Instead, Vai had am Ibanez JEM 7-string, a top-of-the-line combo amp, and a small effects chain to play with while staying at his parents’ house. Now that rig is up for sale on Reverb, and includes:
- An Ibanez JEM7V-WH, owned and signed by Steve Vai, with its original hardshell case
- A Carvin Legacy II 2×12″ combo amp owned by Steve Vai
- A Boss DS-1 Distortion, Boss DD-5 Digital Delay, and Dunlop CryBaby 95Q, all owned by Steve Vai and used in his childhood home
- A Fender Stratocaster signed by Steve Vai and all other members of the Generation Axe supergroup from the band’s 2016 tour, including Tosin Abasi, Nuno Bettencourt, Zakk Wylde, and Yngwie Malmsteen
“Not too long ago, I visited my childhood home on Long Island,” Steve says, “and I realized that, through the years, I would leave gear there that I would use when I was in Long Island for all sorts of different things.”
