Modern Primitive

Here is "Modern Primitive", a guitar entirely hand-built, given a STEVE VAI,  based on the own style of this extraordinary artist. 

This instrument, which I gave to him at Alien Guitar Secrets Master Class he led in Calabria in September 2016, takes its name from its latest album.

What made me happy is that, as he says, he never accepts any other guitars, but this time he made an exception as, in his opinion, he appreciated the excellence of this instrument, which will become a part of his private collection!
