    Met Paul a year ago in Australia, asked a question as to whether there would be a trem version of the P22, he said they were working on it. Awesome guy!!

    I asked if they planned to ever bring back the CE. He said no. Oh well. Glad I have my 3!

    Met him a few times, pretty down to earth and engaging, kinda geeky. He has a quirky mad scientist vibe, very animated and never at a loss for words.

    I first met him at an event hosted by Jack Gretz about 15 years ago. Very nice guy and he remembers everything.

    Ya never know - I asked him why he was recreating GIBSON pups with his 08s - why not make some T & Bs?

    He got kinda pizzy, blew me off - which makes sense, since that tour was pimping 08s. But less than a year later, he brought out T&B RIs.

    Too many guitars.
    Even more amps.
    Waiting for an intervention, here.

    I've met Paul a few times. Nice every time. And I'm nobody. It says a lot about how you treat the people who can do nothing for you.
