Get the Tone

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Khan’s main gui­tar is an ’82 honey sun­burst Gib­son ES-335 strung com­par­a­tively light for a jazzer (.009-.042 round­wounds). His sound is big and warm so we’re look­ing for a full-bod­ied and bal­anced clean tone with an over­drive pedal for the rock­ier, sus­tain­ing mo­ments. Not too much front-end gain though, as we don’t want to lose the fun­da­men­tal note un­der a sea of fizz. Add a driz­zle of re­verb or light de­lay to taste.
