Is The Story of Light made with all True Temperament guitars?

I don't think so. As far as I know, Steve is no longer using that, at least on his main guitars.

"if you tune to A, a D chord will be out of tune. True Temperment fixes that problem. It´s amazing. It´s all we´ve ever wanted. It´s so great. It´s.....gone" :D

I can't say true or false, But if I remember correctly, he mainly used it for the orchestras, because a guitar in tune with strings and piano is next to impossible without the true temperment. I may be wrong, probably am. I can't seem to find that interview, but I remember reading it somewhere.

I remember him saying that he's having it done on all his guitars around 2007.....guess it didn't take for whatever reason...maybe it was uncomfortable to play....

It's must be difficult playing in any ensemble where your guitar is it almost perfect tune and everyone else isn't! It's VHS vs Betamax, minidisc vs mp3 etc all over again.
