    Very cool.

    Sounds like a Tele on that lead no?

    Thanks for listening!!!

    I considered the Tele for the lead but wanted the trem. The fingerstyle lead at the head and center is a combination of two, or in some cases, three guitars. The main sound is a clean compressed G&L S-500 in position two, using the trem to wobble the chords. There are three of those, one in the center and two panned a bit outboard. Underneath is a single gained-up ES-335 for girth.

    And then there's the third, an acoustic - I did a scratch guide track of a rhythm track and the leads with a Taylor 314kce, mic'd with a cheap ElectroVoice RE-15. When I started the mix I muted off the scratch guitars but I found that I missed the slight hint of acoustic lead at the head so I unmuted it again.

    The solo lead in the center after the fingerstyle statement of the melody was done on the ES-335.

    Bob
