Is that a Travis Bean you are playing ? Kramer ?

Thanks. It was a little band I was in at the time that did a lot of originals and we had a friend who worked in this big studio in NY. We took over the place for a weekend (for free) and recorded our tunes. Sadly the 2" masters were lost, so only crappy cassette dubs remain, but it was a lot of fun. The guitar is a Kramer DMZ 2000; aluminum neck and DiMarzio dual sound pickups. I still have it, but never play it anymore; playing it is like running with weights (slow), although the sound is decent. Amp was a Music Man RD112. Here's one of the tunes; my guitar is mixed louder than the other guitar: http://www.fragilethunder.com/music/Wha ... 20Name.mp3
