Vai playing the Hydra

Wow… uh - yeah. So much creativity and unbelievable drive to come up with - and then perfect this. One of the few dudes who just kind of gets better and cooler with age. Not stuck trying to hang onto yesterday’s vibe or presentation. Totally, totally different styles, but I think George Lynch and Doug Aldrich also mastered the art of improving with age - which is much more than simply aging gracefully.

He's one of my favorite all-time guitar players and it shows how much of a genius he is and as stated he's just on another level

I just noticed the three 12AX7 preamp tubes (illuminated in green) on the top rear of the body...precariously unprotected.

And, including the autoharp thing, how long would it take to tune that whole thing?
