I have a photo of Steve playing it from the EEAS tour. You'll need to protect both sides as there are pictures covering the whole thing.
I have seen clear Jem style pickguards for sale on ebay.

Dave.

I don't know if the two "Playboy" guitars pictured are the same guitar, or two different ones.

Yea,
The front and back are playboy mag cutouts I suspect Varnished over
I saw him play it on one of the DLR tours. I belive that that is the back in the performance pics! If anyone has pics of Steve Playing it E-Mail them to me because The links of such supposed pix have not worked!

By the wAy, ...picked up Real Illutions today, Listened to it on the way home from work Wow some great tracks! Steve is the most sonic experimentalist out there! I wish god gave me the fingers, Mind and vision (Envy).
I know it is supposed to be a conceptual album... But i would have placed hills and valley's of songs in different places :twisted: ! I know i sound like a critic it is just that I used to engineer live sound for some bands, Do setlists, Light's ect.
--Love this board!!

I love the picture of Steve! The pic of the guitar, ...Yea thats the one! kinda' would like a better pic of it? Man i'm sure I had one in
"Guitar Player" from years ago I wish I could find it it was a dead on shot! ...and of course he played it in Providence, Rhode Island or Worchester, Ma. on the EAS tour. If i remeber i think he grabbed it as a backup when he popped a string.

I was thinking about Re-creating it.
