"I've also been bringing a different guitar out on the road. I decided to give the Blue Silhouette Special a rest for a while. It's an awesome guitar, I just wanted to change things up a bit, so now I'm using a translucent gold Axis. The Axis sounds a little more hard rock than the Silhouette, so it's a nice fit. It's also nice to have the Silhouette home because it's such a versatile guitar that I could do any gig with it."more
"This little guy... crazy green guitar. This is the guitar I used in the, ah, Steve Perry days. And uh, it used to have a little '1' on it. I had three of these that were custom built by Ernie Ball, and there's still only three of them on the planet. This is a Silhouette, but it doesn't have any bevels right here, cause I wanted it to feel a little more Stratocaster like. So they built me one, they built me three without bevels on them and so, ah, I call my buddy Dudley, who he designed a lot of the guitars that Ernie Ball makes and he said 'what color do you want each one?' And I said 'well, make them surf green, because I'm a big surf green fan.' And he said, 'well, why do you want all three of them surf green?' And I said, "well, I want the best sounding one to be surf green' So I just figured if he just painted them all that color, then it would be for sure. So, I ended up with three of them. So, I had number them so I could tell them apart." The item can be seen 4:00 into this video.more
