Jon Anderson is playing a freek'n Backpacker, unless there's another guitar in the world shaped like it. Check out the new photos at yessworld.

I had a Backpacker for a few weeks, then returned it. To me it was a strain to play: poor balance, and nowhere to rest your forearm.

A bad guitar for a bad guitarist. <img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Yes it is a Backpacker, and it sucks, Jon should borrow a real guitar from Steve, from what I heard at the Tweeter show In Mansfield Ma a week or so ago it really didn't add anything to the mix, just an opinion.
