    Thanks guys, he was very passionate about his songs and put a great deal of work into them. Definitely a unique voice.

    Never having had much interest in 1950's Gibsons and never having looked closely at a photo of a 350T, I just assumed the raw-looking sanded-down texture of the face of the headstock was somehow a...

    Yes, I do think they offer the ultralights in the standard Fender tuning peg size, which is what I believe the NS basses have as well. I don't own one though, so don't quote me on that!

    Yes! They are truly a great group. My first Wilco show was on a beautiful June 2005 night, outdoors in Buffalo. Definitely up there in terms of favorite concerts!

    I honestly have never noticed a photo or video where multiple Versatones were present. Granted, I'm usually looking for and staring at the bass itself. Would love to see a photo with the Versatone...

    I had never seen the black and white one before! The color photo has popped up here and there (though maybe not yet HERE on LTG)

    I've found you can get a great chunky rock sound from a solo'd neck pickup. Of course you won't get the same sizzle that a bridge pickup offers, but especially when the neck pickup is a lively single...

    Larry "the mole" Taylor of Canned Heat fame has passed. Maybe not a Guild player (as far as I know) but he sure was a fantastic bassman.

    Though potentiometers do make a slight difference, the contrast between the pickups is big enough that it would not make a difference. The most notable thing I find is that the Novaks and vintage...
