Traveler Guitar has just announced two new Vai inspired models called the Vaibrant Deluxe V88X and V88S, they come in either Hot Pink, Electric Yellow or Cosmic Black. They both look oh so ’80s-Tastic!
Vaibrant Deluxe V88X
Both models are an alder body and finished in one of two colours, with the Hot Pink costing slightly more than the Cosmic Black version. They have a maple neck with either an ebony or maple fingerboard, depending on which body colour you choose.
The Vaibrant Deluxe models both come equipped with a Floyd Rose 1000FRT trem system that is finished in black nickel, with matching locking nut. So it’ll be perfect for divebombing,
Pickups are a set of V88D Humbucker and V88D Single Coil with a Hum-Single-Hum configuration and are available in either Slime Green or Hot Pink. All ver in keeping with the ’80s shred machines these are inspired by.
The inlays on the 25.5″ scale length necks are either Slime Green Dot or a Custom Vaibrant Inlay which resembles a certain Ibanez guitar we all know and love.
Vaibrant Standard V88S
There is also a standard version called the V88S and these come in three colours – Hot Pink, Electric Yellow or Cosmic Black. They only come with maple necks and have an unbranded locking trem system, instead of the Floyd Rose. But, they are only USD 399, so you save quite a bit by going for a standard version of the guitar.
All versions of the guitars come in a Deluxe gig-bag.
RRP – Deluxe USD 699 and USD 749 or Standard from USD 399
