The amp has nice tremolo. Maybe he uses it with a Fender/Rhodes Stage Piano?

I expect this guitar will be as popular as the electric drum set.

Brown Princeton

Much has been said about the infamous Rickenbacker, but I feel that we should take a moment to honor its #1 partner in tone. John, what is the story behind your Princeton? How was it employed during the recording of PTDTB?

John's tooth fell out while playing some of the Hendrix-style guitar licks that will be all over the new record.

Thanks for the info John. Volume at 3 is pretty quiet and clean on a Deluxe Reverb. I'm surprised that you don't adhere to the infamous Spinal Tap face melt settings. A few years ago, someone showed me a little trick that worked especially well for recording a Gibson SG through a Deluxe Reverb. Usin...

Amp and Pedal Settings

Are Gibson guitars still good?

Frankly, I'm not as enthusiastic about them as I used to be. Reading this article only intensified my bitterness. Do you think current-production Gibson guitars conform to the standard of excellence that we have come to expect from The Long Winters? Hopefully John's indie cred will not be exploited ...

Which model? Is it the one that looks like a pink colored tube screamer?

What pedals are the Long Winters using right now? John, what is your delay of choice?

You might want to check out a THD Univalve.
They're cool...made in Seattle.

Also, the Allesandro Working Dog amps are fantastic.
