Re: Another question: Steve's ultra zone guitar

I just came across this old post and thought it was fitting to bring it to the fore as Steve has taken out the Ultra Guitar on the current tour. we built the guitar for Steve back in 2001 but this is its stage debut.

Re: 15 August 2012 Fall Tour - Revolution - Ft. Lauderdale,

I was lucky enough to travel from Ireland to fort Lauderdale for this show. Well I guess I had to because it was the first night for Steve to use the Ultra guitar that I built for him way back in 2001. It was an amazing night and amazing experience to see my hero playing a guitar I made. Anyway here...

You might well think that Carbon fibre couldnt create a great sounding instrument but this is a myth. Basically a good sounding instrument is down to how the wood in that instrument vibrates. different types of wood have different stiffnesses and densities giving different tones and couple this with...

Hey Iron Priest I caught this same bug about 8 years ago and have never felt well since. Seriously though being a Luthier is the most rewarding job I can imagine. It gives me the perfect platform to fuse my passion for guitars with my creative and artistic talents and has allowed me to work with my ...

I for one am glad he smashed up a few guitars because I recently was given a head stock from a guitar Steve smashed I think during the Sex and Religion tour. Its a great thing to have and sits proudly on my desk.
I have many guitars but only one broken headstock.

I travelled the whole way from Ireland to see this show and it was worth every minute of the cramped 11 hour flight .
To see Steve play Whispering a prayer in the Greek under a beautiful night sky is a truly beautiful thing .
I hope they bring the tour to Europe .

Actually guys its really comfortable to play ,the long end is made from really light but strong materials so it balances on a strap pretty well . As for how it plays its got a cracking set of active EMG's on it and the centre part of the body is wood so its got a real ballsy sound with bags of susta...
