Steve Vai is selling two of his Ibanez electric guitars to raise money for two charities, and both are currently listed on Reverb.

Interestingly, the guitars were part of his 2022 auction in partnership with Julien’s, but they’ve since been returned to him so he can sell them again and raise even more money for good causes.
