Thanks, that's the Erskine 3/4 brush loop being very substantially
sped up by the tap tempo function on the RC-20, and it doesn't sound
all weird like almost everything ELSE does when you speed it up with
the tap tempo function on the RC-20...

That's just the solidbody Ibanez Artist AR-250 shown on the page with the 
Copeland hex pickup. I played that one all with my thumb, which 
probably contributes to the "Wes-ness" quite a bit. The "Fenderizer"
pedal makes it sound bright like a Fender amp. The Copeland Pickup is
very bright sounding anyway, and also has a lot less sustain than a
regular pickup (much smaller magnets and coils), so that's probably 
also making it sound more like a jazz-box.

Cool, I look forward to hearing them. I have a rehearsal and a gig later 
in the week, but I hope I'll have time to make a few more recordings.
