It's the sound you hear about halfway through the solo on the new CD
version of Point of No Return (enough prepositions for everybody?). Some
very nice stuff with the tone turned close to off, then the envelope
filter kicks in and then...it's the dadgum Horn of Gabriel (or maybe just
a vehicle from somewhere out there...) The only thing more perfect than
that sound is how beautifully out of tune the e-string is at the end.
Like it suffered from metal fatigue and was too exhausted to go on.

Most of the other stuff I hear from KVHW sounds like it's coming from his
jalopy of a white stratocaster--lipstick tube danelectro pickups, no tone
controls, strings the size of high tension wires, action so high you can
nearly get a full finger between the strings and the neck. Not a guitar
for the faint of heart. Not a guitar Larry Coryell could bend a string on.

I love this comment, "jalopy of a white stratocaster." I'm sure Steve couldn't agree more. Just out of curiosity, did you set up your lefty Suhr like this? Heavy strings, and high action?
