An idea for a gear-related Alien Guitar Secrets stream

Hi, firstly, I must say I have been enyoing the AGS live streams a lot. Thanks Steve and team for doing that. I would just like pass on an idea for one of those. I think it would be a great idea for Steve to speak how he develops a bond with a particular instrument. We know that there are a couple o...

Steve's Jose Arredondo Marshalls

Amazing video from Pete Thorn about Steve's modded Marshalls from the late 80's. It features Steve and Dave Friedman, who rebuilt those amps recently. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbRJeFYfwjU Also the video solves a thing that that was confusing me for a long time. In All About Evo section there ...

Re: Steve Vai's Generation Axe Rack

They are Synergy amps modules. Steve uses 4 of them in the combination with Legacy pre-amp pedal. The bottom two are the Morgan designed AC-30 style pre-amp and a Plexi pre-amp and the top 2 are Fender Twin and Fender Hotrod Deluxe pre-amps. Steve said that he was using the Morgan designed AC-30 pre...

Re: New Guitar Gallery

Found another thing: The Stucco Blue guitar (#SV314) was used on Breaking The Heart Of The City with Alcatrazz and it seems to be tuned to drop-C. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fKaSPrLRT8 So, is it possible that it was this guitar that was used for the opening riff on the Crossroads movie scene a...

New Guitar Gallery

Hello @Jeroen and the rest of Vai team (and Steve if he comes through here). Long time no see (post), but I've been lurking from time to time around here. First of all, amazing work on the new guitar gallery. Pure guitar porn. Love it. A lot of interesting information, like that the guitar on Gravit...

Re: Problems with EVO on this tour?

Hi again.

In the Youtube comments of the rig walkthrough, Greg commented that FLO has a huge crack and is in bad shape.

@Jeroen Is that true, or did Greg simply mistake FLO for EVO?

P.S. Will you be able do a feature on FLO III in the forseeable future?

Re: Problems with EVO on this tour?

Another question for you Jeroen. Is the original Flo also suffering from cracks an is it one of the reasons why it was retired? Also next year is anniversary of Steve's 3 main guitars. Flo turns 30, Evo 25 and Flo III 10 years old. Could we get a special feature about those 3 next year?

Well I got answer to my question from Greg's Vai Rig Rundown video. It seems that Evo's crack is getting bigger again.

Re: FLO III

So FLO III now sports an new engraved backplate (like the one that is on EVO). Does anyone know if the engraving is the same as on EVO's backplate or is it another picture?

Problems with EVO on this tour?

I've watched quite a few videos from this tour and I noticed that Steve is often switching Evo for Xavia (which is now a general backup guitar) in the middle of the song. Also it's evident that Flo III is now the main guitar (used on more songs). There was also the picture of Evo being shipped to Ib...

Re: All about Flo - 10 years in the making...

Not only that. Flo is also the floral Jem that was used in Just Like Paradise video and was one of two main guitars on Skyscraper tour (the other was the number 1 Jem). Also from the videos of recording sessions of PAW we can say that Flo was used at least on Ballerina 12/24.

Flo returns on stage

Last night original Flo was used as drop C guitar (Probably last moment replacement for BO).
