Hi John. Thanks for the kind comment. I use a vox valvetronix ad50 vt xl amp. it sounds wonderful!!! For practice, I use a Chord amp, small and no fancy effects. Just reverb and a clean sound.

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.

The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…
