Thanks for the replies, nice board you've got going here. Cool info about the Maton guitars, had never heard of them.
Genny, yeah I'm in Portland, too. Nice town, the weather has been far nicer than I expected. Didn't know about Neil's in-store at that record shop, would have checked it out. I went to said shop to see John Hammond Jr. play, got there at 5:10 and he was just finishing up, didn't hear a note! A clerk there said he played two very short songs. Why bother?
