Xavia wasn't made then, but the guitars I miss are: Flo II and Sunburst 70's strat

And a little comment on each...

Aaaah, I'm asking for too much... :headbang

I miss the yellow JEM from this video.
I miss the red JEM from the PG rig rundown, that's hanging by the wall. (On the left. Like 7VSBL, but different color.)
I miss the Evo III.
I miss the Evo Replica.
I miss the Fire Strings JEM.
I miss JEM70V.
I miss some early 7VWH prototypes, and Steve's comments on each one.

But I still hope that the gallery isn't finished yet!

The gallery isn't finished indeed.

Some of the guitars you mention likely won't be added because they are no longer available for photography, such as Evo III (given to Malmsteen).

Some of the tourguitars are waiting to be photographed (such as Xavia and the Jem70v.

Not sure which one you mean by this? Can you perhaps post a screenshot?

I don't recall seeing any red jems.

It's possible he is referring to the JEM 777SK, (which is of course pink!)

Hey J, wasn't BFG given to Yngwie? I have seen it in his collection.

By the 70V I meant the one without a sustainer, because you said that the one with sustainer was a loan from Hoshino Europe.

I'll post a screenshot in a while.

Random thoughts:

>I didn't know he owned a Double Neck S... Those are super cool- I almost bought one maybe a year ago

>Didn't know he had so many mirror top guitars

>White JS1000s are pretty rare

>Red RG120- Fancy!

>I wonder why he has an unfinished jem- not a finished natural color jem but an unfinished one- maybe for an art project?

>I wonder when the LACS 8 String dates to- looks older/different than anything I've seen production wise from Ibanez-- tiny body-- i bet it sounds good because the neck pickup is right on the neck

>I like the Ibanez Jem 777 VSK in pink (page 3 guitar 7) gorgeous fretboard

>I love the Universe Mirror Ball- i might make one

> I've never seen RDNZL before- pretty cool (page 3 gtr 15)

>Page 3 guitar 25 is 'where the wild things are' (I only know this because of Stephen Colbert)

> They should release a Real Illusions JEM color scheme- its great.. (although i could just get one made cheaper than if it was to ever be released...hmmmmm)

>He has a 7 string 90th anniversary JEM (Page 5 prototype)

>haha a Real Illusions Jackson Kelly- cool

>Does the sticker strat have a new neck? or was the neck refinished?

> JEM999 Pretty cool

>I'm suprised there aren't more Les Pauls (or an SG)

>ha i like the mini swirl

>I had an epiphone mandobird - 8 string version is awesome

>I have an Oud- Not because I play it but because i'm jordanian

That 8 string is a custom LACS and he's had it since at least 2009 but probably earlier.
I remember noodling on it back in 2009 @ Mikey's place where he had it to photograph it (along with some other rare stuff, like the very first Jem 777 LNG prototype with the hand carved Lions Claw).

RDNZL is from 2006 I think, it was build before the ZPZ tour and has a piezo in it.

Another fact about RDZNL; it was played by Mike Keneally during g3 Australia/NZ rehearsals

Also what would be interesting is to make a page with Steve's main guitars chronologicaly with his coments.

Something Like: Sticker Strat (-1984)-> Green Meanie (1984-1986) -> First Green LNG (1987-1989) -> Universe Multicolor SV01 (1990-1991) -> Universe Polka Dots (1990-1991) -> Jem 7PBK (1991-1992) -> EVO (1993-) -> FLO (1997-2009) -> FLO III (2009-)

Sorry, would post this before, but I had some problems with the forum.

Ok, so here it is.

I'm also missing the frost blue Jem, that was built alongside the JEM70V prototype.
What's up with the names (model numbers) of the Euphoria guitars. They seem weird to me, or they are some custom model numbers specifically for Steve?

EDIT: Added screenshots from JEM EVO Video.

As far as I know, FLO III was already in use back in 2007. FLO dissapeared shortly after her neck change (from normal to TT).

I think he means 'main guitar'

I would bet FLO III dates back to 2003 or so

I don't think FLO III dates back to 2003, because guitar that was used as FLO spare at that time was FLO II.
FLO II received linear tremolo around 2005/2006. Jeroen said that the guitar was used as spare, at the Blossom Suite performance for the last time.
