Loss of response on the neck pickup

Yeah, largely down to preference on that one though. Although, like you say, the Carbon Copy is a pretty solid delay.

Are you willing to go second hand?

As a basic guide, I'd say to go for a Fender Vibrolux or something of that ilk, with a nice hollow or semi-hollow body guitar to go with it. I'm a big fan of the...

It's really hard to say, but probably this lovely Japanese Tokai Love Rock I played at a jam night a few months ago. It was absolutely beautiful. Smooth action and a great weight...I was in heaven.

It doesn't really matter. You can play it a step down and get away with it, or just do the obvious thing and get a capo on the second fret.
