I noticed he was using a Radial Bigshot PB1 boost pedal. So maybe he gets his tone with low wattage amp and a boost. It looks like he uses SF Princetons on his show. That's what Kenny was using that night as well as far as I could tell.
I'm really just trying to get as close as I can to the tone I heard that night. So any pickup that's gonna put me in the ballpark is good enough for me. Clarence White's tone on Sweetheart Of The Rodeo would be cool too...
I saw Marty and the Superlatives late last year in Macon, GA. One of the best shows I've seen in years. According to Marty's road manager who I talked to after the show, the Radial Bigshot is Marty's only effect other than the amp reverb from the silverfaceDeluxe reverb he was using. He brought Clarence out the edge of the stage so that I could see it better, but it never left his hands. I agree, it's one of the best Tele tones I've ever heard.
