I always thought that Mike sounded just like Steve imitating him perfectly. But I liked that Tony was able to throw his own style in. Both are about as spot on as could be humanly possible, but Tonys spirit comes out in his playing sometimes more. Its apples and oranges I think though I really like ...

Only if he has one of the new squiers with the two point knife edge tremolo. Otherwise it will require drilling for bolts, but still less work than a floyd. Can you post pics of your guitar for us?

If you have to have this guitar and cant really afford another one I would suggest not installing the sustainer as it will cost you a fortune and if you use a fernandes kit youll be paying a fortune once again. Although you could use the sustainiac and most likely not have to route the guitar to mak...

He should use it one last time,and then auction it like the one grammy show with PIA,Red Lace,and another guitar they auctioned of after the show(he performed with nelly furtado),HOWEVER,I highly doubt he will EVER get rid of EVO,I'd say when that crack in her body gets to be too intense for her to...

Its interesting to note by the way that steve once used many jackson guitars including several neck thrus which he still owns. He didnt like them and left for the ibanez design. By the way. The tension free necks were plagued with problems, ask rich at jemsite to help me back some of that stuff up. ...

Hehe, I noticed that a couple months ago, so I went listning to the backing track and it's on there too (easyer to hear). But like RAI said, I wouldent be surprised if it was meant to be there. Unless it was an error and that a microphone in the studio caught that "YES!!!" and Steve thought it was ...

It looks MUCH MUCH MUCH neater if you dont think its neater your a moron (im not trying to flame anyone but it does) lol. Steve has a vwh in his collectino now with the new trem.

Nice pics mate. The stress cracks there causing any problems? hopefully not it would be a shame to lose such a guitar. The neck has a nice dark color to it with soft glow. Does he treat his raw wood necks with lemon oil or tung oil? Does anyone know for sure? I would mention that i treat my raw neck...
