    Last night I was trying to figure out portions of "Achilles Last Stand." I realize Page layered about 12 different parts into the thing, but there are a few references to how he strung it together...

    I've been toying with bringing a guitar to my office for a while but I'm afraid it would be too much of a distraction.

    SD had a whole line of pedals at one time, and it seems they didn't sell too well and were discontinued. This is, I believe, the only pedal they currently offer.

    I was speaking more in terms of specifically Alex Lifeson. Alex uses quite a lot of distortion and effects, and with the LPs I feel there is a lot of definition lost. This was less true in the...

    My favorite wah ever was the DeArmond Weeper, which sadly is not made any longer. Bought one new in around 1982 and used it for many years until it died.

    Awesome looking. The only thing I would personally change is the knobs, but instead of black I would put amber lampshades on it.

    I've been playing Gibsons and Epis for 36 years (and more recently PRS). I think you'll find that the PRS SE line is more comparable to Gibson than to Epiphone. They are that good.
