John ex­am­ines the Ir­ish jazz gui­tar leg­end Louis Stew­art

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Joe played a va­ri­ety of arch­top jazz gui­tars over his ca­reer from Gib­son, Ibanez, D’Aquisto and more, all with a bright but full-bod­ied jazz tone. His amp was gen­er­ally Poly­tone, al­though later on Pass did away with an amp and went straight into the house sys­tem via a DI box, with just a touch of re­verb. We’re af­ter a crys­tal clean tone from the neck pickup, prefer­ably a hum­bucker; and flat­wound strings with a wound third would be just the job.
