Hi Jack! I'm doing fine! :) I just don't hang out on HC much nowadays. Oh yeah, and I have Gretsches again (2 of them - 6118 Anniversary, and a 5250 Special Jet w/Dynasonic 2000 pickups). In a couple of weeks, I will have an Esquire (I decided to get what I really wanted during this go around with Teles, than what will "just do").
F.Y.I. - I read an interview of Angus, in a 1980s issue of Guitar Player Magazine, where he mentioned that maximum gain was NOT the key to his sound. He mentioned that in his opinion, if you backed off the gain a bit, the guitar "sounded larger." At the time, his guitar of choice was a stock, 60s SG.
