    Bedroom/apartment amp around $200

    This is going to sound like heresy but if your needs are for a full, clean sound at minimal volume check out Fender bullet reverb or whatever its equivalent is today. 15w, closed back, great clean, takes pedals reasonably well. $99 new. The neighbors will not be upset. BTW my gigging amps are...

    Does Nils Lofgren Get The Respect He Deserves?

    In Baltimore and DC he does. He was our local guy who (almost) made good nationally with Grin in the early 70's. They were a damn fine band and Nils was a damn fine guitarist. Still is--wish Bruce would let him take more extended solos.

    Well that's stunningly beautiful. I have rosewood necks on a few of my EBMMs and i love them. I wonder what tonality difference the neck makes on this tele?

    Songs that sound similar.

    "It don't come easy" by Ringo Starr and "Let it rain" by Clapton. They're the same chords; it's the same song.

    Who is breaking new guitar-tone ground these days?

    Splatt--give it up: it's the new Taylor Swift record, right? Cool stuff. Also jpervin--thanks for the Campilongo/Ribot video. They used to call that "outside" playing..

    Is there a Fender amp that is as cool as the champ, but the next step up?

    My first "good" guitar as a kid was a '70 melody maker (sg version) in pelham blue. I've been a sucker for the color ever since.

    Susan T and Derek T-off the shelf guitar players

    Just finished reading the Guitar Player interview with Derek Truck and Susan Tedeschi. I love the fact they play production guitars--a '61 SG RI and an american Std Tele. Makes you think that many of us, self included, are a little obsessed, ya know?

    I currently subscribe to: Fretboard Journal, Guitarist (UK), ToneQuest, GP, Vintage Guitar and Premier Guitar. • Fretboard Journal is a cover-to-cover read, great 'out-of-the-box' edit; • Guitarist is a fun read, too; a bit provincial (the UK seems like it's the size of Rhode...

    a dada reminder

    Agree with all re: dada. I own all of their group recordings (I think) and we can all agree that in a fairer world, they'd have enjoyed a higher level of success. Must confess-- I have not heard King's X. Recommend a starting disc for the uninitiated? Thx- Gary
