I dig the 6-string. I LOVE the tones. I'm a bigger fan of the more "mature" GD, when they were on fire, musically and mentally more mature...I speak mostly of 1989 - 1990 up to Brent's passing. THAT was the "heyday" for me.
Phil would not be dropping as many bombs as the 1985 days, let alone the 1968 days. That old Big Red & Big Brown sounds are fantastic, but they sound more like a young man on a lot of drugs trying to find his way....I prefer the older, more knowledgeable tastemaker.

"If we had any nerve at all, if we had any real balls as a society, or whatever you need, whatever quality you need, real character, we would make an effort to really address the wrongs in this society, righteously." - Jerry Garcia
