How long do you think it will take, and how will you get the pictures? Try to get pictures of it without the pickguard on because I'm curious ;)

If say, Andy dosent mind taking a screwdriver to it!

I'll let you use my All About FLO video if you'd like ;)

Just kidding of course lol. I mean unless you actually do. But I don't think you care. Now I'm just going on.

So when can we expect the page Jeroen? :D
In the last interview with Steve he was using Flo exclusively with Bad H, Flo III, Evo and FP2 with piezo, roland pickup and sustainer in background. Is he recording something?

Well that video was when he had longerbhair and he cut it over the summer from Vai academy. So it wasn't a recent video.

I have to admit in a very ashamed way- FLO III felt better than FLO. In terms of the neck and the neck joint

The joint was kind of uncomfortable on the higher frets because on the bass side- the neck joint is pretty thick like a regular square heel joint

I have short fingers so I notice more than Steve probably does but you know.

The true temperment neck was also kind of bulky. I like a thicker neck but FLOs was kind of thick in an awkward way. Probably because TT actually made the neck.

Also- FLO has a piece of cardboard in between the neck and the joint. They probably made the neck too thin in the contact zone between the neck and the heel

The neck is Ibanez made, not TT. They did the fret job. However, Flo's original necks are thinner (same as EVO). I own one of them and it's ludicrously thin.

The piece in the heel is not to offset the neck, it's to offset the neck pocket. The neck heel is a normal sized heel. The shim is made of wood, not cardboard.

oh. I thought Thomas had told me it was made by TT. I think it was when I asked about the "TT" engraved on the back of the heafstock. I found it weird the nut screws were top mounted and with no serial number in the back of the headstock. I thought that was strange.

Any word on wether or not EVOS neck was repairable?

Also do you have any word on the approximate time the DVD will be released?

(Oh, and all about FLO too ;) )
