That Freeze pedal that Neil was using looks interesting - anyone know which songs he uses it on? I play in a three-piece and reckon it could be useful to "fill out" my guitar sound. Cheers


Fairly sure he used it playing Suffer Never at scala. The impression i get is that he was trying it out, i perhaps he thought it did "fill out" his sound while playing solo.

AC30 is on my wish list but as odd as it sounds I get everything I need in terms of sound from a fender amp.
- thanks for posting that, part-time 'anytime' piano-player!

Would love to know how they recreated Sean's vocal @ end of TNT for 2 so well, wasn't just Neil/Sean's harmony was it....and was it something from this pedal board which contributed to the effect?

She did her best, Sam, leaning right over the stage at full stretch, aiming the camera and hoping. Short of climbing up on stage (and a possible eviction) that was the best it got Smiler

Hi there,

Just wondering if anybody would be able to offer a little more info on Neil's Maton acoustic.

I know it's a Custom EGB808. I'm trying to decide which is the closest looking standard-issue Maton. The 'Artist' model seems too light in colour. Would the EGB808L be a closer comparison?

Thanks in advance.

By the way, that's a great shot of the pdeal board!

In terms of features, Matons standard artist model is closer, in terms of sound. The artist models have small microphones just inside the soundhole aswel as a pickup, althought some of neils older models wouldnt have the microphone feature. The model hes using here is his most recent one from maton i believe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy3lzKykXkc
The 808L is a laminated finish, but i believe neils artist is a different finish of that to the standard artists. Not by colour but what its covered in. Maton would happily re create neils acoustic for you if you wish, just mail them.

Hope this helps Smiler

Any one know anything of the guitars Neil used on Songwriters Circle? First was a Taylor and couldn't make out the other, looked like quite a funky little 12-string. Are these his, or just borrowed for the concert?


Never seen the taylor before, and the "little funky" 12 string is a mini maton EMD/12 Diesel Special. Not sure if both are his, but he played the 12 string at the Jazz cafe, a solo gig, a few months back. i
Here is a couple pics of the fyrbyrd... I found out the color of mine and neils is NOT Autumn Red... In fact it was a custom color Mahogany... Left the factory 29/10/65
