Subject: a question from a fellow gear nut



your live sound is amazing. recently, i saw kathleen and jim in ferndale (detroit) and that got me to some whirlwind youtube'ing. your trance-like, spirit of neil young solo on 'goodnight california' blows my f'n mind. absolute tone heaven. if its OK to ask, what rig/gear set up you use?

thanks for the great music,



Hi Jeff,

thanks for the compliment. I use a few different guitars,etc depending on the need of the song. My main guitars with Kathleen are a '64 SG standard,a '68 Tele,'67 Ricky 360/12, '59 Les Paul Standard.

For amps I rely on vintage AC30's,BF Fender Deluxe reverb,and my #1 amp, a custom made 20 watt Class A amp made from a Bell & Howell film projector. An amp guy in Toronto is now making an exact clone of my amp.You can check them out at www. teixeiraamps. com.

Alot of the guitar I do on Kathleen's records are this amp.
