    My longtime friends , The New York Guitar Festival requested that I send 'em a song for the quarantine times, so here 'tis . They got the title wrong ,but that was probably because of legal/publishing reasons

    I fixed that Danelectro reverb box 4 or 5 years ago ...after it sat on a shelf for 10-15 years ,so I wanted to document it actually being used.
    Also used
    1970 Trem 50
    checkerboard 4x12 w/ Marshall labeled G 12 65's
    '76 Ibanez Rocket Roll Sr
    Danelectro Tuna Melt Trem
    '65 Kalamazoo Model One
    Shop Vac nozzle

    Sometimes people stand on the shoulders of giants, but (I) Alvin ain't no dwarf!
    Love it Alvin. Sounds like you visited the crossroads too?
    Hope you like the above title for your new song!

    Cheers mate
    It's not bad , it IS a tone suckin' POS . A local used store owner gave it to me when he decided to go internet only. The orig springs & transducers were not happening. I hit upon the idea of trying to fit a modern tank inside .It's been na few years since I got it goin' . I was thinkin about having a look inside and a consultation with my lifeline Randy ,who really knows whats goin on ...to see if we can't somehow improve the performance of it
