Get The Tone
This track was most probably performed on a Fender Stratocaster with the bridge pickup selected. There are quite a few live videos of Joe performing Funk 49 with a Strat and these all maintain the same tone and vibe as the original. To get the sound with your own set-up, simply select the bridge pickup of your guitar (add a bit of presence if it’s a humbucker) and dial up a treble orientated, lightly overdriven crunch sound. You really must make sure that you can hear the guitar and amp’s fundamental tone and that the sound is not saturated in unnecessary overdrive. It’s as simple as that!
