just watched 20th century man... the amps quite likely a marshall super lead

hope that helps, pickups dont really matter i assume they're stock gib

amps settings? sounds fat ... maybe bass 8 mids 8 treb 6 gain 7

dont quote me on that, good luck

Bolan was no tone hound; his setup was Gibson or Fender through Marshall or Fender. The only constant was that he turned it up.

He used a couble of Dallas Rangemaster boosters with HH or Vampower amps. His main guitars were a couple of white stratocasters and a Les Paul he refinished with house paint to 'make it look like Eddie Cochran's gretsch' I heard. Basically a guitar tone on the fuzzy side of the norm, with a lot of treble. Probably compressed in the studio atleast, and maybe a bit of automatic double tracking to flesh it out a bit.
