It looks like you all had yous a real good time. Wish I could've been there.

By the way: double bound Snowman was playing...was that his customized 330?

As far as amps go, what were folks plugged into?

Jake ---- we wished you could of joined us too ! Lotta fun.

Snowman's WB was originally a 330. He had double-binding added on the body and PW bound the neck, the 50s sparkle-style shark fin inlays, a deep red Paul W. FireGlo finish that is outstanding, a Mastery Bridge and underneath his Bridge Toaster top cover he has a souped up pickup, I think a Bartolini, but Mikey would have to confirm on that. I played his WB on a about half a dozen numbers and its feels so nice in the hands with that smooth high gloss finish.... not to mention its already plugged into Mikey's connoisseur selection of Effects Pedals. I can't speak highly enough about the deep FireGlo color of that Paul W finish .... my 90's V-64 in FireGlo, didn't look half that cool .

Regarding amps on hand, I think the Studio provided guitar amp was a B-52 with a cabinet of twin 12s .... Gary and Spence and Hawk were switching off using this one. I had my Mesa Boogie Subway with a 10" speaker which is plenty powerful and easy on the back (after having spinal surgery last year). Randy also plugged into the Mesa when he was playing. The Snowman had his awesome HiWatt with a big cabinet. I think Scotty J brought the bass amp, or it may have been provided by the studio. The keyboards were plugged into the P.A> system.
