What kind of guitar would you get for a Raw Power/Sex Pistols type sound?

Humbuckers and (a pedal that sounds like) a cranked twin reverb, no? I thought that was the Steve Jones formula.

I'd say a Les Paul/SG Junior with a P90 would be the most "appropriate" (and therefore maybe not); but, as always, a Telecaster would work fine.

When I was a youth I had an acoustic punk band. I played a Fender dreadnought as well as mandolin, banjo and accordion... another guitarist, acoustic bass and snare drum with brushes. It was a nice rattle-clatter band.

I realized a strat/tele sound just is not appropriate for those heavy punk types of sounds. You wind up doing a lot more work than necessary and it just does not sound right.

depends, once you get to like d-beat or crust punk territory you can just use a fuzz into a dimed amp and the guitar doesn’t matter.

for that mid-heavy mid gain stuff any guitar with a humbucker will do.
