OVERVIEW

A glorious celebration of a landmark album.

2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the release of Steve Vai’s landmark solo album, Passion & Warfare. Critically acclaimed and publicly celebrated for its unique artistic vision and sheer musical muscle, Passion & Warfare is now considered the milestone that marks the arrival of the 7-string solid body electric guitar.

The Universe, as Steve dubbed it, was showcased prominently on Passion & Warfare, and opened the door for guitarists of every musical background to expand their artistic horizons. Initially adopted by like minded guitar virtuosos, Steve’s vision of a new musical landscape took a turn that perhaps even he hadn’t anticipated when, in the hands of Korn and other purveyors of 90’s new metal, the 7-string became mandatory equipment for anyone engaging in the genre.

Since that time, Steve, along with countless other 7-string enthusiasts have continued to incorporate the Universe into a myriad of musical settings that have both inspired and challenged the world.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Passion & Warfare, Steve Vai and Ibanez are proud to offer three very special limited edition guitars.

Using the same colorful swirled patterning associated with the original Universe, they here present “Passion” & “Warfare.” These handcrafted guitars draw on the color schemes present in the original album artwork, depicting the ravages of a war-torn hell juxtaposed against a nirvana-like state of passion for life and for love.

The third in this series of celebratory editions looks to the traditional role silver plays in observance of a 25th anniversary, marrying it with a design reminiscent of Steve’s custom 7-string, used when touring with Whitesnake, immediately following the release of Passion & Warfare.

77 pieces of each of these three editions have been made available to the public for purchase.
