Al di meola has some great stuff, but I think the stuff he did earlier on in the late 70's and early 80's was a lot better than the stuff he's done recently. Not that the stuff he's doing now is bad.. it just not in the same direction as the earlier stuff.

Interestingly, he also did a track some years ago called "Race with the Devil on Turkish Highway" which was a rerecording of Race with the Devil on Spanish Hwy with Steve Vai.

That's not that old, he's playing a PRS which he has only done in the last few years.  In the 70s and 80s he was an LP with Super Distortions guy.

If I recall, Al Di Meola switched over to PRS back in the late 80's. In the 70's to mid 80's he was definitely the LP guy with Super DIstortions.. The LP's he played were super nice if I remember.. You still see him with them every once in a while.

Didn't know he switched that long ago, I know he is holding a killer one on the cover of his latest disc.

If I recall, Al Di Meola was one of the first guys after Santana that Paul Reed Smith gave a PRS to. I still remember seeing a cover of guitar player from back in the day with Al holding a green PRS with a Roland synth installed.
