Have to say, that custom chair he's got is pretty boss too.

The guitar is sultry for sure (maybe pity about the rosewood, should've gone for ebony :lol:). The other colours are cool and fun, but this one has the serious classy thing going on.

I like the black one very much. Thinking about to get one. What Steve is presenting there with one hand is outrageous. I wonder, how he controlled the ambient noise with only one hand.
Cheers !
I guess a fret wrap and a bunch of takes for each challenging part. You can see in the video that some or maybe all parts are not actually played live, still impressive nonetheless. Steve is an inspiration and always nice listening to him talk (as well as play).

But i can't see any fret wrap ?
That's what I'm saying, he pre-recorded the audio and then played over the video and edited it together for the music video. There are a few parts that don't sync up well, in particular the divebomb bit where you can see he kinda fumbles it but the dive-bomb continues in the audio. It's pretty normal for people to make play along music videos to recorded pieces that aren't live, this definitely seems to be the case here.

I have the white PIA which I picked up last night. I ordered the black one as well which should get to me at some point. This guitar is just so well playing and so nicely built. I absolutely love it! It literally has everything that I have ever wanted or modified on my previous guitars on it.

I love the look of this guitar. Has anyone tried the PIA? I've heard the neck is a little thicker near the nut. I have a white MIJ Jem and a sea foam green MIK Jem and I love them both. I'd be interested in hearing from someone that has tried the PIA. Thanks! ~Scott

I played my VWH now more than twenty-five years, but since i got the PIA, she' s sitting in the case. I did not meausure anything, but the neck feel's very similar to a VWH neck, maybe a little bit different. What can i say ? The playability of the PIA with the stainless steel frets is great ! I also like the Utopia pups, they are much more better balanced than the EVO's. At first, i thought, wow, a nice collector, but now it is my player for the next ?? years.
