    Not really a trick. Guitarists have long been using Bassman heads. Not sure I know any bassists who do. Don't think I would either, there are a lot of great sounding Fender Amps.

    Not a 512... had a chesterfield and not a G-shield. I looked up Simon Townsend's guitars on google and the 1512 came up. Kind of surprised me.

    Saw The Who Last Night

    In NYC at MSG.

    Simon Townsend played a Guild 12 string acoustic on 2 songs. I think it was 1512.

    They were really, really good and Pete still has the best right and in rock.
