I checked out Winterland Studio's site and their new Studio B looks like a really nice setup.

I think the real advantage for Winfred is having someone else at the controls to set up the gear properly and to translate what he does into a good take. He's got some issues with regards to where he can do his recordings at his residence. He's got concerns that his recordings don't capture the true tone of his guitar (which may be a matter of perspective), and when doing both guitar a vocal at the same time, you can catch the trepidation in his voice.

If nothing else, it will be a bit like attending a private seminar on recording. Plus he should end up with a recording that he can use as a benchmark for his future work at home.
