Yeah, he's never into it. I wish he'd show a little more enthusiasm. :lol:

Thanks guys. I'm not really pursuing the Dead Covers Project thing. I personally think that should be more for "unique" interpretations of GD songs. Solo, ukulele, etc. Maybe I'll try a solo banjo version of some song...

Hi Michael,

Nick is playing an Ibanez Musician modified with a middle single coil and switches to have all pickups "on". The core of his amp sound is the IVP preamp. I don't know what power amp he's using. Maybe an old Crest. His cab has Eminence Commonwealths.

What's your rhythm player's rig?

Hi Vic,

Thanks. Steve is using one of those new Hammond XK keyboards. No Leslie though.

Fred did stop by and I tried his prototype for a few tunes (Birdsong, Cassidy but not this clip). It played nice and sounded great. Different sound but still good. It was a light guitar. Maybe more like playing an SG with a longer scale length. I enjoyed playing it and it would make a good backup guitar for me.
