Steve's guitar collection

Does anybody have any more pictures of Steve's guitar collections 'apart' from what is on his website?

I'd just love to see where and how he stores all his guitars and any pics of his studios.

In advance, Thanks guys

...Except those pics are not Steve's guitar "collection".
Simply the guitars he has within reach at the Harmony Hut.
Now, his actual, full collection would be very interesting to see.....

Most of his guitars are documented here. As you probably know. I really like the way he part of his collection out for easy reach.

Re: Steve's guitar collection

I'm surprised by how many acoustics and hollowbodies he has. Also, it's cool that he still has the Tom Anderson prototype and the pink Soloist around.

Oh, and is that the FTLOG guitar on the bottom? Is that thing even playable?

What's with the green straps on all the necks?

Re: Steve's guitar collection

I was wondering about those green straps too...

What's the story with the lavendar/red/white/green one in the bottom row (two behind the 7VWHs)? It has a grip in the wrong place, and looks like a Fender neck. Was this an early experiment (pre-Jem)? I don't remember seeing that one before.

Its playable if you put new electronics in it...

I wish they would have produced this guitar, the swirl ****ing PWNS...

The guitar you're talking about is the Anderson prototype.

And the green "straps" are to help keep the strings from vibrating when Steve cranks up the amps for recording....
