Why does Steve put 555 necks on the VWH? - cause he likes th

Hi! Just curious- anyone actually know why he has 555 necks on some of his VWH's? Judging by the attitude towards the 555 by most "JEM-nuts," I'm suprised a cross made of 555's hasn't been burned on Steve's front lawn- JUST KIDDING!!!
* Anyway- are those really 555 necks? If so, is it for having a different feel/tone? Or is it cause Ibanez wouldn't sell him a replacement without him first sending the broken neck? So he just grabbed a few 555's off eBay (eeek!!!) and walla!!!
* Sorry- in a starnge mood, but I would like to know why =) Nikki =)

1. *It's "did"- past tense.
2. *He did it because that was the spare neck available after a show where an "unfortunate incident with gravity" took the original VWH's neck. *The 555 neck was straight, and felt good...so he kept it on there. *If it's not broken (again), don't fix it.
3. *The 555's aren't *that* bad. *They lay the smackdown on all those "blowout" Fend*rs and such from the chain stores. *

If I had to choose between no guitar and a 555...well...can I at least get a UV1000C case? *:-)

555's are great guitars. The trem is like the only thing that sucks on it. But COMPARE it to another Jem and it's like looking at black and comparing it to white. But in all tenses it is a great guitar.

i really don't think steve needs to buy a neck from ibanez...if he wants a broomstick with a swirled headstock he gets it!

agree with Caprile,
Steve IS Ibanez. why should him buy something from himself?

Hi! Was just curious why he seemed to have the 555 necks on for so long- seens Mike liked 'em too. As for the "...send the old neck to Ibanez..." comment- hehehe! completely tongue in cheek-lol! I am suprised Ibanez doesn't have a guy following him around with a truck full of spare parts, bodies, necks, etc. hehehe.... *Nikki

Ibanez doesn't, but Steve does. *He's called Thomas Nordegg. *:-)

Maybe a marketing thing to sell more 555`s. To show that if they are good enough for steve, they should do it for you too.
