Alright, I was watching a live video of Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and while it's not as much his famous tone as with Red Special, how does he get it to sound like that? I know the treble booster(which I intend to buy actually; tried one, it actually sounded pretty good with my playing style) and the AC30 are big parts, but how does he get that tone without the Burns Tri-Sonics?

He uses a sixpence coin for a pick, that might be part of his tone.
