So i'm driving home from work and Bad Company's Burnin' Sky comes on. I'm digging the organ and guitar. I've been out of the classic rock mode for a while. And now i'm getting back into it....anyway...what's that guitar tone? amp? tonebender? fuzz face? etc....?

A lot of their tone comes from various tunings, open G in particular. Old guitars into old amps. Few pedals that I know of aside from wah.

Mick's guitar sound while with Bad Co quite often is swimming in phase/chorus.

I love this track. Especially the drum accents and most definitely Paul Rodgers' vocals. :love:
Haven't listened to it recently, but I always thought the lead guitar tone was the product of an MXR DynaComp and some sort of phaser (into a loud Marshall). Or it could have been some other compressor instead of the MXR, I really don't know. It just sounds "squashed" in that low-fi, pedal-sort-of-way.
Bad Company rhythm tones always sounded like Les Pauls into Marshalls, but I know Ralphs and Rodgers really were into Strats (and I think Ralphs famously used a Tele or Esquire.)
