    Didn't know much about this guy aside from the SWR endorsement...

    saw him on austin city limits last night with Ben Harper, and, man, can that dude lay it down...and he had some great tone from his Mo' Bass and multiple SWR cab setup and and a 5-string Fender Jazz...wow!

    All I've seen of him is the Ben Harper live DVD, and I was blown away. Juan is freakin' amazing.

    I didn't even know who Ben Harper or Juan Nelson was until my brother took my to a BH show a few years back. Since then, I've been a huge fan!

    Pick up the live CD, Live From Mars. Juan's playing an MTD 5-string, and his tone is KILLIN'!!! He's got some of the funkiest grooves I've heard, and they just...seem to fit!!!:D
