Seymour tells stories of being on the road and stopping in local music stores, listening to local players, and how he would come up with new pick-up ideas from those trips. Next, Ken and Seymour discuss in detail the modular amps that he made and the story behind them. Finally, Ken asks why Seymour decided to walk away from the amp business, as you'll find out why.
