It is a 1999 Universe. I removed the mirror pickguard and replaced it with a black one with white binding. Thanks for the comments. I hope to put up some more vids soon.

Your playing is great.........but I would have been more impressed had that been your own composition. I'm one of those guys who believes that it is a complete waste of time and effort learning other peoples solo's note for note. I dont think doing other peoples stuff breeds originality...........take the elements you like from it and try do your own thing....... Its sort of like owning a car you cant drive.
Dont get me wrong I love John Petrucci..............my point is find your own voice and practice the hell out of that.

I agree with you on original compositions, but not on learning note for note. Learning other guitarists material is a gateway to developing your own style. I'll put up some vids of my own when I get the time..right now I'm swamped.

The reason I said what I said was that I've seen a lot of great players who cant seem to shed their influences... If you cant you're in a tribute band of some sort..(not that this is a bad thing but if you are after originality). I agree its a good thing to learn licks(not solos) from your favorite players for technique........but its a double edged sword.
