Were there 2 Green Meanies?

After months of Internet abuse to try and find as many photos of Steve with Green Meanie, I've found various photos that may indicate that there were 2 green meanies, or at the very least 2 different bodies.

If you take the Yankee Rose era incarnation it clearly shows a lions claw term recess and if you look at the guitar when it was retired it has a flat level blacked out recess?

Am I missing something?

I have read that many times but that doesn't answer the question. And it's immaculate. The first three versions of the green meanie had a lions claw teem recess. The final stickers version did not. It's term recess was flat.

I think by the time of the one with the stickers the Floyd Rose had been routed deeper in the body and the old lions claw was consumed by that routing process.

There was a second one, with a handle added.

I don't see a handle, I see the DIY palm rest.

Looks like early incarnation of the stickered version, it already has the painted headstock and Vision sticker.

You're probably right -- I always thought they were different due to the lightning-shaped handle on the top of the guitar. It certainly matches the stickers on this pic:



I thought it was a backup when I first saw this ad, lo, so many years ago.

Being in the skateboarding business I like the stickers! I certainly hope that he didn't ride as I can't think of anything that can put a person out of commission quicker than a skateboard.
