Dale, great video. The first thing I noticed about that '98 archtop before you even mentioned it was the thickness of the body. I liked the overdriven tone when you put on the Fulldrive 2. I listened to you say it three times but I couldn't catch what pedal you put on at the 9:00 mark? Wayne Graft or something like that? Google wasn't my friend. That pedal sounds great too.

BTW, nice shirt! The Browns are finally on the right track.

A friend of mine had a McCarty Archtop Artist 10 Top for many years so I've had lots of time on one. I should have bought it from him when he sold it a couple years ago.

That was a fun video, Dale!

I had no idea that PRS had ever made an archtop! Fascinating information!

Nice to hear you play for a while, also!

Hello friend!

Thanks so much for giving this a look. The pedal that i spoke to quickly about is a John Landgraff overdrive pedal. Kind of interesting to look him up. The pedal was a gift from a friend - you can't get them anymore and, like a lot of things, that has driven the value up. He was an amp and pedal maker in Fla that had a lot of success building his own designs. I never met him but wish i could have - i'm quite honored to have one of his pedals.

Go Browns!

thank you sir..your words always encourage and mean a lot to me. On YouTube your videos come up as suggestions where i have watched so many. I most always click on one and sit back and enjoy your gifts which are many. Thanks for your music and taking your time and trouble to allow us to enjoy them as well!

your fan,

Nice playing! That guitar is actually mine that I consigned to a dealer, though it may have sold already.
