Hello, is there any information about the guitar Reeves Gabrels is playing during this set? It at first glance it looks like a Bronze or Concert Fly but there seems to be some sort of MIDI system above the bridge?

Funnily enough I'm pretty sure I saw this guitar for sale recently. Is that why you're asking?

If I remember correctly it was a custom one off built for him. I'll see if I can find the listing..

I didn't know about a sale. The metallic teal color and lack of pick ups while still sounding like an electric are cool to me.

Haha ya what a coincidence! I think it's meant to be. It can be yours for the low price of 25K! :D

25k is a bit much. However if I ever get my hands on a Fly with messed up electronics I might build something similar.

A guy in the FB groups recently converted a Deluxe to a poplar-bodied Concert by filling the cavities and repainting. In the last few years of USM production, you could actually order Flys without pickup routs (I seem to recall @dayn or someone else having a tangerine Deluxe with only RMC saddles as pickups).

Edit: Here’s a link to the public FB group post about the converted Deluxe.

Indeed I did - back when there was a Custom Shop I ordered a Deluxe in Tangerine, hardtail, no pickups or controls, empty control cavity. I then had RMC saddles added with an 8-pin DIN jack. Nothing else onboard.

Cool guitar.
