    No, it went away sometime in the late 80s. Those Black Widows came from different makers, with several different pickups... and mine was one of the Mosrite-built models with the Maxon-made humbuckers... which were basically PAFs, as I understand it. (I wouldn't have had a clue at the time. :D)

    When I first started playing I got my "punk" tone from Peavey Bandit. It was all I could afford and at 50 watts with everything on 10 it was barely loud enough. My sister in law bought an early 80's Peavey Audition Plus for me. She found it in a yard sale last weekend. It's good for 15-20 watts wide open and sounds like my old punk sound to me.

    Short answer to the long story, P-90 into a silver panel Peavey on 10. Old strings are bonus.

    The upstrokes aren't the problem. It's the lack of palm muting and overall lack of aggression.

    On a side note, I got to see Los Crudos last night, and it was pretty inspiring. I feel like every musical project Martin touches is great. I think they sounded even tighter than their old records.

    Crusties that just do drugs and don't drink? I'm dubious about that.

    Suicide's S/T debut has the best punk guitar tones.

    He might have been on to something. :eek:

    I couldn't lighten up enough to start taking random unknown drugs. Still can't. I don't think I have a lesser quality of life because of it. :cool:

    Why is this thread in pedals? Punks don't use pedals, except East Bay Ray.

    I get my punk tone from a modded Fender Excelsior, a Rat pedal and a parts Tele. All together its less than the price of a Hot Rod Deluxe III

    i think czech-one-2 meant that jello was in rare form with his other projects. The former DK and jello are at war it seems.

    Right, I saw Jello's band at a festival last summer and He hasn't slowed down at all. Not sure what the DK fued is about though...
