    That looks pretty fancy for a guy who is not really into "furniture guitars" so I'm wondering if it is a re-issue.

    I like the way he cranks the amp quite a bit then plays lightly on the guitar but if he wants to dig in it can get really gritty.
    "In many ways, most people’s happiness, peace and love are mortgaged to the external situation. So, if the stock market goes up you are happy, if the stock market goes down you are unhappy. But the quality of life is not about what is around you. Our ability to live joyfully here does not depend on the size of the house we live in or the car that we drive. These things make your life comfortable and convenient but the essential quality of your life is how you are within yourself right now."

      Two words: "Bad **bleep**"


      Everytime I see him on vid, I just get a grin from ear to ear. He never ceases to amaze with his playing. Plus, that tone. mmmmmmmmmmm.

        Amazing tone. Love that!! Is he playing through two garden-variety DeVille amps?

          Meh, what horrible amps, those Aitch-Arr-Dees!
          Heck, I could sound 'zactly like him if I only had some real 'spensive amps!
