    Hello all. I recently came across the song 'Bees' by Ty Segall and really loved the guitar sound. I was wondering if someone who knows more about amps and gear than me could tell me what kind of amp it sounds like he's using? You can clearly hear the guitar around 1.40. Here's the link:
    It doesn't have to be a specific model, a company or range (i.e Tweed, Plexi, Silverface) is fine. Also, I mean the rhythm guitar not lead or bass. Thanks in advance!

    Assuming this is a serious question and not a troll post...
    Sounds like a badly miked cheap acoustic. If it is an electric at all, then the amp is most likely a tiny solid state practice amp with the bass turned all the way down.

    No not a troll post at all. I sincerely like how crappy and lo-fi it sounds.

    Yeah, I wonder if it's something like one of those belt mounted practice amps (Danelectro Honeytone?) or similar. There's quite a few alt rock tracks from the 90s with a similar tone in spots.
