Steve Vai's Guitar Stolen From Outside Of Tony McAlpine Benefit

(Classic Rock) A guitar owned by Steve Vai was stolen from outside the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles where the guitar hero was performing at a benefit show for Tony McAlpine.

The custom mirror JEM - which Vai nicknamed 'Bo' - was taken from outside the venue on December 12 (Saturday) where he and a host of other musicians including Tom Morello, Zakk Wylde, Billy Sheehan, John 5, Mike Portnoy and Nuno Bettencourt were performing.

The show was set up to raise funds for guitarist McAlpine, who was recently diagnosed with colon cancer and had to postpone a string of tour dates while he undergoes treatment.

Vai's guitar carries the serial number F0006311 and has a host of unique features, such as blue LED fret dots and a red laser in the headstock. More including video from the show here.
