What are the spec's of FLO III, which is currently Steve's main guitar? Is it a 7WVH or another white - painted model?

It seems that Steve has some tunning problems with the guitar (FLO III) on this video.

but it´s only the B-String and the E-String right?

Maybe my ears are tricking me, could also be only one string that´s out of tune...sometimes it´s good again, I think he´s trying to get around it by bending the notes a little bit (or pushing them down harder) :lol:

Ebony finger board too ? looked like it but lighting and video compression can trick your eyes quite easily.

Tunning can drift off on a guitar for so many reasons, especialy if it's used live, trust me I know +200 gigs a year currently; and my old 88 floral holds up very well but it's always been gigged since the day I got it over 15 years ago, sometimes it can take a little time for a guitar to get it's stage legs, and I know that sounds rediculas and can't be based in phyisics .. but it just damm well does anyway, hehe.

peace

once again, Steve gets the bodies that are routed for the Low-Pro and WE get stuck with the Edge-Poo...er uhm...Pro. :roll:

I just saw Steve at a master class.. And FLO III didn't appear to be backstopped as far as I could tell.

Anyone know what single coil pickup he has installed beside the sustainer?
