Hey guys, I was watching some 2012 G3 videos on YouTube, I watched Steve's most recent Rig Rundown, and in none of them Steve uses FLO, in the Rig Rundown video FLO is hanging back there all alone, and Steve says he used EVO, the For The Love of God Universe, and FLO III a lot in the new album.... what about FLO?
Why use the FLO III instead FLO?

He said that he used FLO but when he lifts FLO III, says that this one was used heavily on the record. In the Musicradar TrackByTrack interview, he said he used FLO. Now that's confusing, which one was used? Maybe he prefers PAF Pro sound more......

well, in the JEM 70v premium, look behind him to the sea foam green strat, youll see original flo is missing. so she was moved or used. and in the new preview dvd video, it looks like flo is hanging up next to flo III. so i think she is being used.

I don't like the TTs very much.....

FLO is my favorite, then EVO, 20th, then MOJO, then Universe Swirl, Universe UV777.......

I think is a shame that Steve has FLO II, FLO III, EVO II( Astoria DVD )...... for me they are just Jems with the Fsk-401(FLO II and FLO III) and EVO II is just a 7V with black bridge and etc.......

The Astoria DVD was recorded in two shows, some songs ( at least one...) Steve uses EVO in one show and EVO II in another...... and in the edition...... well, lets just say that some magic happens........ EVO, EVOII,EVO,EVOII...... LOL

I have my own "FLO", there are some pictures of her in this forum, and it hurts when Steve doesn't use THE FLO a lot LOL

just correcting something....... I don't think is a shame that Steve has, and uses FLO II, FLO III.....
I just think is a shame that he is using them a LOT more then FLO..... for me is the same that go to see Vai play something, EVO is there hanging, and Steve playing with a EVO replica....... It's sad

Well you know, about that magical thing. When I first watched Astoria DVD, his guitars really made it to my heart. When Blue Powder was on, I just wanted EVO. When there was Whispering A Prayer, I wanted FLO, and EVO II when The Animal was on. I know this may sound ridiculous, but i just LOVE his guitars, it seems like they have a soul. And it hurts a bit, because I can't afford the Jem, but on the other hand, my RG550's are even closer to specs of his main guitars, than the production model Jem.

Flo is right there on the stand with the others guitars, I think she was used on the record.

I think Thomas put a rubber on the Volume/Tone knob on Evo and Flo III, which can be seen here. I also noticed a change on the rosewood fretboard Ibanez "Strat", bottom knob was changed with "Danny Gatton" knob.

Nice! Flo and her specific sound, I really miss that trusty guitar... Flo III doesn't even come close to the sound that Flo makes.

honestly, I'm sure nobody could tell the difference really except Steve. I think it's just his tone changing, I liked his 2007 g-force tone better than his axe fx tone, that 2007 rig was the best tone I've ever heard for Steve, or anyone for that matter.
