Get the Tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON -

Char­lie was a Gib­son man, no­tably us­ing ES-150 and ES-250 mod­els (cost­ing $150 and $250 with match­ing amp), and an L-5 for acous­tic du­ties. To get close to his sound you’ll need flat­wound strings, the heav­ier the bet­ter and def­i­nitely with a wound third. Char­lie’s was a small valve amp, so the tone can be ever so slightly driven when he played hard, but we’re es­sen­tially think­ing clean with a tiny amount of bite if you dig in.
