Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: British R&b -

Dur­ing the late 60s, Justin was pri­mar­ily us­ing a Vox AC30 ‘ Top Boost’ combo in the stu­dio. He also used Mar­shall 100-watt and 50-watt stacks, and twin HiWatt stacks live. To get clos­est to the tone, you’ll ideally need a hum­bucker-equipped gui­tar. It doesn’t have to be a vin­tage ES-335, but this would help. Se­lect the bridge pickup and roll off some tone con­trol to sweeten the sound. When a cleaner sound is required, sim­ply back off your gui­tar’s vol­ume con­trol to re­duce the dirt.
