    What your favorite guitar or guitar of choice when covering Stones type music ? Obvoiusly there are many choices, I kind of gravitate towards P90 type tones.

    My R8 does it for me also. I'm partial to early Stones from the beginning to Exile on Main St.

    Not sure this is the response your looking for or much less the popular reply..but when we did the stones etc. jam stuff..acoustic all the way.
    And with so much conviction you could hear a pin drop.

    That was a long long time gone.
    These days its all about worship and praise. To The Name Above All Names.

    My Epiphone 335 pretty much stays in an open G tuning. It's my go-to guitar from some Stones riffing.
