I just read up a bit and I realized he actually played upside down. He played left handed, but used a right-handed guitar, so all of his bass strings were on the bottom. He also allegedly used a CFCFAD tuning and apparently he was known to drop his "low" string as low as C, so then that would mean instead of three perfect 4th intervals + one major 3rd + one perfect 4th he would have one perfect 4th + one perfect 5th + one perfect 4th + one major 3rd + one perfect 4th Although it would still be upside down Any way that is his tuning... But the other peculiarity I noticed is that he didn't even use a proper "Tube" Amp....he used SS acoustic amps, namely the Roland JC 120H. So how was he getting that "fat" distorted tone, without even using a Tube Amp and no actual breakup? There is a "Fuzz" switch on the 120H with a Level knob, or it switches to Reverb, so he must have been using that Fuzz? Or what... I mean, this kind of puts things into a totally different light, when you talk about getting that "spanky" bluesy, "overdriven" tone, it's not overdriven, but it doesn't sound like a completely clean guitar tone..... or does it? I think if you listen close, you hear this level of Fuzz actually...So I think was using that Fuzz. Also clearly a phaser as has been indicated through reading. A wah pedal too. The Flying V has HBs so that will give some natural "hot" sounds, but he is still playing through a completely solid state amp....at the end of the day! I don't think you could get away with that if you wanted some "obviously" overdriven sounds, but I think it just shows how it's more about the playing and the actual source tone of the pickups themselves...But that fuzz I think is a clear component I guess this means I don't even need to waste a G on an AC30 after all.
