    I'm trying to get away from that Fender/dumble style of fat into somthing leaner anf meaner. How about this attempt, guitar is chapin Hawk and amp is Thunderbird #2, Marshall 1912 cab with G12-65 speaker:
    Lean Weekend Blues

    Nice tone, Anders, a little too compressed for my taste but as you've got something really cranked I suppose it had to be! Either that or you chose to have a lot of pre-amp gain and kept the Master down low? Dunno, but I'm listening to it on my little PowerBook speakers which doesn't help!!

    What's the stuff?

    All the best, Pete.

    The amp is ALMOST cranked, compression is from 4*EL84 in cathode bias :) . No Mv in this amp :dude

    On this clip i use the Bridge pickup only, I'ts a Seymor Duncan Jerry Donhue Tele Bridge PU.
    The neck (not used on this clip) is a AMAZING Beezelbucker, it's got a p90'ish and a stratish coil AND the two coils can be on their ownm in series or paralell. A clip with that PU may be posted soon ;) .

    "meaner" is good. Great tone and playing. Keep up the good work. Tell me more about the amp. Do they have a website?
