The song Girl was released by the Beatles in 1965. So the Santo and Johnny cover is from after that. Figure 1966 or around then. The sound I’m hearing is mainly ferocious picking and vibrato. I’ ...

Try out one of your bass amp heads with an extension speaker cab. And maybe a reverb pedal. In my experience a great bass amp can sound better for steel than an okay steel amp. There is nothing really ...

I just found a Rains SD 10 for $2000 for a buddy. That is about as good a guitar as money can buy. Get your money ready and be a little patient and you can move way up in quality.

Tim,
It could be a solder joint. Both those pickups work fine in general with LW amps and every other amp. Have you tried plugging the steel into the 2nd input ? It may be attenuated like Fender ...

What do you think switching to a U12 would help ?. I have used both and a D10 is vastly preferable to me. It depends on where you are at as a player and what you are looking to do though really.
