So, Steve is a Orange amps artist now...

Saw this coming, since Ade Emsley is the technical director.
Forgot to mention this earlier but I absolutely love what a rousing endorsement it is:



I assume this means this is one of those "these products are cool, not that I actually use them" type endorsements, but even by those standards that's not a particularly marketable quote and I wish I knew how we ended up here. Did Steve just recommend Orange amps as a favor for a friend or something?

Closest I got to my trusty sound? LMAO. He used the same amps from 1982 until recently (with the exception of 1993-1998 when he used Trace Elliots).

Ade Emsley is the owner of Orange amps. Does this ring a bell? Yes the guy, who is mastering all of Maiden's work.

Does someone knows what guitars are that (the red ones which are the most visible) - ESP ? And who is the owner of them?

The first red one is the Jackson 12/6 doubleneck used on COTD and probably OOTS on AMLOAD studio version.

The 2nd guitar (between the doubleneck and the #1 Sunburst FR Classic strat)... I have no idea.

Could it be a Charvel San Dimas? Double humbucker, floyd rose and strat shape.

Oh yeah, the first one is the double neck used on COTD - how I missed it! Then we can agree that all these guitars are Adrian's.

The 2nd guitar could be Ibanez Roadstar?

EDIT: This Sunburst Strat is the one that Adrian used in TFF tour, right ?

The controls are very similar. The neck could be other. Charvel and Jackson usually combine different necks in their models.

Nope. That was the Mexican Strat that is at Rock N Roll Ribs.

This guitar is H's main standard tuned stage guitar since 1995-2007, with the exception of Early Days tour. Also played on Psycho Motel albums, both Bruce albums and all of the reunion-era albums with the exception of TBOS, which was the #8432 Jackson Prototype mostly.

There is a shadow on the neck and makes it seem like a Rosewood fingerboard.


EDIT: Well, I'm wrong... It doesn't have a Floyd it seems...

Regearding the 2nd guitar, it could be indeed Roadstar RS 530...

I never knew H owned a red Roadstar. I know that he has a blue sunburst one that was used on Powerslave record.

It's not a Roadstar. It has a different headstock.

P.S. H is playing his #1 Strat in that clip (100% sure), so that could still be it on that photo.
