Interesting tone. Are you sure it’s a fuzz? I’m hearing, on the rhythm parts, a ratty, blown out Tweed Champ on max with hot pickups kinda tone. That little speaker and single ended valve crapping out in a musical way, similar to what Neil Young would do with bigger tweeds. Of course, that’s...
I have discovered a pretty simple trick to solve what your describing. I play strats, Tele’s, les Paul’s and 335’s, so I found the be-all trick in adjusting each to my rig for perfect tone. An EQ pedal! I don’t mean that facetiously, I mean it honestly. With humbuckers, I set the eq pedal with...
Well, I don’t want to pile on on Throwbacks, but I’m another underwhelmed user. I had a set of the standard PAF’s ( SLE 101’s I think) and found them to be really hot and full of ghost notes on the bridge. I just couldn’t dial them into anywhere useable. Very disappointing as they really were...

Perhaps the OP should amend the title of the thread to ‘ Plese tell me all about all musical styles made between 1955 and 2000.... and let’s not let this descend into a bitchfest about Morrisey or Oasis”.
...only one of those two things is even remotely possible....
Well, I always saw it as it being ok to be British.
It's a complicated subject really, because it was largely manufactured by a music press and companies and run with by the wider media and the bands and popular culture themselves. I always cringed at the term myself. It coincided with a...
