This is very sad. His was a vital and, yes, you could say a beautiful presence in the midst of this good forum. He was, clearly, a fine man. My thoughts are with his family.

Following on from Ron's question about the Swart amps: ARE there any new amps that are as compatible with a vintage lap steel as the old Valco-mades are said to be?
