whispering a prayer is all EVO2

and most things he uses w/sustainer BESIDES Building The Church

I love the EVO2 bridge pickup and highly endorse it

Whispering a prayer it looks like Steve is playing the whole song with the neck pickup which is the sustainer on the live version. that s not a good reference for an evo 2 isnt?

Does Steve ever record a song with an evo 2? In his rig rundown with premier guitar (which is awesome) Is there a guitar there with an evo 2 hanging on the wall?

there are ONLY live versions of whispering a prayer -there is no studio version.

the sustainer driver is the neck pickup

when the sustainer system is ON- the selector switch is bypassed and the bridge pickup is automatically on

so anytime you hear a sustainer the bridge pickup is on

this is an evo2

and any other time i'm using a white guitar

here's me explaining a little of the sustainer system on a video of a guitar i'm trying to sell

this guitar has an EVOLUTION in the bridge-

Either of those pickups are great but I'm a big fan of an EVO2

thank you

it felt and sounded great- the year before i used my road king by itself and my performances that year i used the axe fx with the road king as a power amp

despite being in a baseball stadium the amp was only on 2 or 3... only so i could really hear myself

it was mic'd up and put through the house PA--- it sounded great...

a few of the games i did a sound check before (sometimes even a month before) and nothing is cooler than hearing a guitar echo in a huge stadium... sounded killer... felt great

what?

i don't know what you mean or talking about or trying to say...

My white sustainer guitar has an EVO2 in the bridge
And any time the sustainer is on the bridge pickup is automatically on...

I should also mention the first half of that cover the volume is only on 1 or 2 to get that kind of tone...

I don't remember what amp I used on it-- I think I used my Triaxis because that's what I was getting into at the time but I don't remember.
