Steve's JEM's/Stock JEMS?

Does Steve play stock JEM's,as they were built to his specs or does he do more modifications to the ones he calls evo and flo?

Evo started out as a regular run of the mill Jem, and Flo is an old floral that was painted white.

"Started out" are key words. If there were no modifications and they were similar enough, he wouldn't need the extra buss for a tech and the guitars.

Well both guitars have had several tremolo, and necks replacements over the years, but are still off the shelf parts.

Several necks. And a neck pickup on Evo that made Vai jump into a pile of trash to recover. Add some bright green tape, paper and more tape, and the necks are probably accepted by Vai before they are used - be it 555 or 7 necks.

That made me laugh when i read that on the EVO page. EVO has had many different necks and replacements / fixtures to basically hold it together , it's pretty close to just breaking in half.

but for the most part, if evo fell apart he could grab a Jem off the rack at guitar center and play a show sounding like him. His own guitars are that close.

So he's using the Edge pro, or the original edge?

My guess is he would rather call the show off...
