Went to see Steve tonight... I'm still deaf, tired and all but anyway.
Evo is again his main axe. She's got a new neck, though.
It's a maple neck, with a bubinga stripe. Rosewood fingerboard, with tree of life in blue pearl, and a white headstok. Still got black hardware all over it, tho.
Guess what, he threw Evo to Thomas after one song.......
I guess he doesn't learn...
That chrome Jem is a nice little gizmo.
It's basicly a black (10th) body with binding, a thing chrome coat (I'm pretty sure it's a sheet of metal of some sort), mirrored pickguard. Nice neck, again rosewood, tree of life and black headstok. It's got a sustainer.
Nice touch: He played it with his feet. They had a big spot on the other side of the venue pointed at the Jem, and with that he shined to all the people on the front row. Nice....
Then we had flo, which has a new neck (not a 555 neck).
But that's for a while now, I think.
And there was Flo II (I think that's wat it said. Defenitly not Evo II or Pogo), who had a production 555 neck complete with 'steve vai' inlay.
I didn't see the blue Jem tonight, but it was a rather short gig.
(Night of the guitar, with Eric Sardinas, Steve Luthaker and some other local stuff)
But it was nice to see Evo agian. That one has spirit to it..
