New Ibanez Vai Signatures

The World’s Greatest Living Guitarist™ Steve Vai has been busy of late. Not only has he been working on an intriguing ‘orchestra project’ he’s also been setting a task or two for his homeboys at Ibanez Hoshino.

As reported in Guitarist, production on the new 1990 reissue of the Ibanez Universe has begun, and he’s also launched the JEM Floral Pattern 2, which has just been unveiled at Frankfurt 2010.
