Ask Katy

I've noticed that John has a section of his website dedicated to describing the type of guitars and amps he'll be using on the upcoming record and tour. Nick has also commented on the synthesizers he uses. So, my question is for Andy. What kind of guitar/amps/effects will you be using on the new record? How would you compare your sound in 2003 to that of the early records?Can't wait for the new music! Chris
