    Hey folks, many, many thanks for taking the time to listen and comment, your generosity is sincerely appreciated !!

    Yeah, my Gretsch is just a stock 5120, the only ´mod´ are the dice, ha o_O

    I basically go into a Nocturne Brain (thanks Tavo!) and then into my soundcard and record directly onto the pc.
    I´ve been usuing Amplitube for a few years and it seems to do the trick, for recording at least.
    Of course I´d love to upgrade to a pro-line one day .....well, I can dream :D

    For this recording and how I sometimes record, I record the guitar part with the neck pickup, some delay and perhaps a tiny amount of reverb and pan it to the right (in this case).
    I then record the guitar part again using the bridge pickup, no delay but a bit more reverb and pan it to the left.
    Of course doing that live wouldn´t be possible and for this track I use the neck pickup if I´m just playing it by myself or practising it, etc.
    I find the differences in tone and slight differences in each performance help to naturally widen the sound.

    Many thanks again for all the kind words!!
