Looks just great. Really liking the Ricky too. What amp do you play them through? Am thinking of upgrading my Marshall Valvestate to a Vox AC30 quite soon...

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.
If anyone heading off to see PajamaClub over the next couple of weeks, could maybe have a look at what neils using? maybe if you have a good position to have a look at his board? or the more obvious things like guitars, or amps, microkorg etc.

Thanks Smiler
so hes been using two fender pro juniors with pajama club, and his tweed amp he has at the ch shows is a 58 deluxe, the gretsch is a 58 also Smiler
- 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
Just bought myself a Vox AC30.

If anyone on here has this amp could you please kindly share your settings for some Neil Finn tones. Early Beatlesy tones would also be welcome (fantastic amp btw)

Smiler
Neil using his old matchless at the finn brothers opening for the world cup, havent seen this since the oprea house show. Still no idea what head and cabinet/amp hes using with the matchless. he used the same one at the back end of the last ch tour. anyone any ideas?

Finn Bros Wont Give In
Go to 1:07 to get a good view of the amp/head/cab im talking about. didnt realise before but theres something else on top of the matchless.
Pictures of neil using a 65 amps, lil elvis. Not 100% sure of the model lil elvis, but the positioning of lights in the pictures on the pajama club facebook page leads me to believe its a lil elvis.
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
I dont know if I should be admitting this but I have a Maton FyrByrd 1220 IDENTICAL to Neils...

Same Autumn Red Finnish with gold anodized guard...

I can't see it too clearly. Wondered perhaps if he might have dragged out his old RE-201? Seems unlikely but who knows....

Cool - any chance of some pics Smiler
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

I actually have a Black one as well...

Both are simply amazing guitars...

Greg
Yes there is a Bigsby on the Mahogany one it just hasnt got the arm on it anymore... It was and still is common to remove the arm on the trem unit if you arent using it... They are easy to buy and just bolt straight on...

Greg
Just found out, through tweeting neil and googling that his tweed head and cab amp that he uses is a Gibson Ensemble GA 86. Only 46 ever made. Ultra rare. Neils is in great nick.
