Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?
There isn't a single thing about the PIA Steve will be playing that anybody in the world can't have done to their own. Can you buy it from Ibanez that way? No. Who said LA did the scallops? Who said they installed the sustainer? I have no idea where he gets each of these done but he's in LA which is abundant with techs to do whatever he desires and Thomas is no slouch at anything related to everything Steve owns. Mad Hatter did the electronics mods, not LA. TT did the TT, not LA. The whole point is, you can buy Steve's exact guitar, and then modify it exactly the way Steve has and play exactly what he plays, if that is what you want.
Or we can all just keep complaining. Something tells me it'll be the latter, but you never know.
