    They call me Bushwacker, and I play a G&L S500 as my first line of offence, and always bring my 1976 Les Paul for back-up. what I am looking for is tips to get that thick chucky sound for accasional songs, but mostly I play clean, and I recently aquired a Fender 1/2 stack because it was such a steal, but I normally play through a Fender M-80 that although is rather thin on the distortion side of things is just dripping with chorus. I want to dial in the 1/2 stack to get that thick sound but did not want to play the proverbial "process of eliminations game" with 900 pedals I don't need or use afterwards. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. :cool:

    'Chucky' sound? Like from the horror movies? Or...are you talking '59 Bassman 'chunky' or 'barky' sound?

    With a good Bassman, a proper set of pickups and volume control...using either the V-knob or your picking control can give you that transition. That's the way I'd try to do it.

    But, if you like pedals...........

    (insert whistling noises here.....)
