Getting The Sound
For this lick I'm using a Gibson 335 guitar (1969) into a Fender Super Champ (old valve one from 1983 designed by Rivera, not the current model) recorded with a Shure SM57 microphone.
To get the sound I used the Bridge pickup. Volume right up. Tone right up.
'Exact settings' even if you have the same amp and guitar will probably not sound exactly the same... but my settings (to use as a starting point): Volume 5, Treble 7, Bass 8, Reverb 3, Lead N/A, Master Volume 3.
None used! The signal went through my mini pedalboard but the only thing I used was the tuner!
