    I'm sure it does. I have a couple of hunches, but I'd love to know the scoop.

    Dargin- if you're out there ... we need some torture.

    Speculate

    Why not speculate wildly? I believe we're looking at 2 regular passive humbuckers and a 5-way superswitch that will allow Steve to get really close to his usual tone pallet. The "active" part of things, I speculate, is two-fold. First, used as a noise canceller while using a split bridge or neck humbucker. Second, there's a push-pull or push-push pot that kicks in a boost (ala Valentine). The 5-way switch may be as follows:

    1. Bridge Humbucker in series
    2. Bridge Humbucker in parallel
    3. Bridge Humbucker split coil (active noise cancelling)
    4. Neck HB parallel with Bridge HB
    5. Neck HB in series

    I saw all of this at the DP show in Phoenix a couple of weeks back
    It is a good looking guitar.
    Edgar Winter and Alice Cooper opened the show
    They were fantastic too!

    I spent the day with Tommy when they were in Toronto. Had the chance to see everything up close, play the guitars, talk to Steve, and watch the shows from backstage. Early in the afternoon, Doug Rappaport (from Edgar Winter) came by for a bit- as well as being a monster player, he's a good dude. I'll have to post some pics.

    The guitar Steve had there was the NAMM prototype style, with the bound fretboard, and some cool wiring inside Different profile neck than his other guitars.

    Though the highlight for me is always hanging with Tommy, he's good people.

    I´m a bit obsessed with neck profiles. In how far different? Is it possible to describe a bit?

    Yes that´s the highlight for me too. I don´t know him as good as I suppose you do but met him a few times. I can confirm that. He always takes care of me when I contact him when he´s near. He would not have to, but he does!

    Forgot to update this with a few pics.

    Close-ups of the prototype (... or as close as I'd like to post ...):




    In action from a pretty damn good seat (Steve actually came over and chatted during the keyboard solo):



    Good times.
