    i usually play through my vox ac30 or ac4 during rehearsals or live but in my bedroom i have a pod hd500x going into the power section only of a spiderIII.
    im trying to figure out where to begin to get that JLH guitar sound from the blues brothers. i dont have a hollowbody....just strats.
    i was wondering if any of you modeling gurus could help a guy out.
    thanks in advance.

    This is how I would approach it...
    • Set the strat to the middle pickup.
    • Dial in the "GIBTONE" preamp model on the HD500x. (I say PreAmp model because you are using the power section of a Spider III)
    • Start with everything at half... adjust drive and tone to taste.
    • Although JLH would be pretty dry, you can add a spring reverb in there and still stay pretty authentic
    Good luck.
