Get the tone
Marriott played mostly Gretsch guitars in the Small Faces days. He favoured semi-acoustic models like the 1620 and Country Gentleman, both of which were equipped with humbucking pickups as standard. However this doesn’t mean that you won’t get close with single-coils. Remember, guitar sounds were very trebly during the early 60s, so select your neck pickup, turn your tone control up full, and dial in plenty of treble on your amp. To reduce distortion for rhythm parts, simply roll off your guitar’s volume control until the amp 'cleans up'.
