Pretty generic tone really; humbuckers, a pick, new roundwounds, scooped mids and blended with an overdriven bassy signal.

^ good call on the roundwounds. between that and the humbucker i think those are the only 2 things shaping this tone haha everything else can be done with a 2-band eq lol. good ish ziphoblat
