That addressed all my concerns, great stuff.  Thank you for the effort, 
and please do some more.

I have a friend who made his guitar in high school shop, a solid body 
electric of course.  Autographed by Johnny Johnson many years ago.  Its 
a pretty fair sounding piece of maple, but no comparison to the clarity 
of your instrument.  To paraphrase a nearly 80 year old acoustic bass 
player brother-in-law of mine, that guitar is 'tasty stuff'.

He (the friend) and about 3 others, another guitar player, a father & 
teen aged son trade places on an axe, & a drummer whom I've never 
figured out why he isn't doing it professionally, he's that good.  They  
get together to jam on friday nights, but even on their best night, 
theres no comparison to this.  Thanks.  This one is a definite keeper.

But why an mp3, why not a q7 (or higher) ogg?

Cheers, Gene
