|SOLD or GIFTED
An early Loch Ness Green Jem guitar. 777 of these were made for retail, but Steve had some additional un-numbered prototypes. This particular guitar was used by Steve on tour in 1988 and can be seen in the “Stand Up” video. It is not signed or numbered, and other than some body and neck wear and a small crack in the fingerboard under the first fret, it is still in very good condition. The guitar is not fitted with an Ibanez Edge tremolo, but a Kahler one, and a mechanism in the rear spring cavity can actually lock the tremolo, effectively turning it into a fixed bridge.
Steve gave this guitar to Michael Mesker in 2007.
