Steve Vai Autographed Ibanez RG320
eBay Auction: June 20-June 29
While many musicians fit easily into a single category, Steve Vai's unique musical vision remains unclassifiable. After more than 20 years, Vai continues to use unbridled guitar virtuosity and soulful artistry to explore the spectrum of human emotion. His longtime association with Ibanez guitars comes to play here with this personally signed RG320 model. The RG guitar line is the unchallenged standard in hard and heavy rock guitars. A lightweight basswood/flamed maple body is stunningly stained in a translucent black finish and the super-thin, super-flat Ibanez Wizard neck provides the foundation for fast and furious riffs. Topped off with an Edge III bridge and a pair of IBZ DiMarzio humbuckers, this rock machine is primed for the hard-edged sound and performance that made Steve Vai a legend.
Autographed PRS Carlos Santana II
eBay Auction: June 27-July 6
With over 50 million records sold and countless guitar players converted to his blend of pop, blues, jazz/fusion, and world music, Carlos Santana is a true visionary who’s music and influence have brought guitarists and music fans from around the world together. As Paul Reed Smith’s original signature artist, Santana is almost synonymous with PRS guitars. The Santana II’s sweet, rich tone and smooth sustain are made possible thanks to the classically designed carved maple top and mahogany back that mark “the Santana” look and sound. The “artist-grade” flamed maple top is beyond gorgeous and is accentuated with stunning rippled abalone purfing. The PRS traditional “bird” inlays are flawlessly set into an exotic Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Finally, a pair of PRS Zebra humbuckers provides the sing and growl needed to channel Carlos’ magical musical spirit into every note.
