It's all in the fingers. Just gotta have the fingers of the King of the Blues. Hell, that country player wasn't even plugged into an amp. It's all in the fingers.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

fender strat through an absolutely cranked fender (looks to be a 65 twin reverb), probably with some upgraded speakers, pushed with a tubescreamer style over-drive pedal. thats the basic idea of what hes doing to get his tone, though he could certainly have modified amps or be using a more boutique amp of sorts.

really though, any all-tube american style amp (6l6 power tubes, 12AX7 pre-amp tubes) with 12'' speakers with a decent OD pedal should be able to copy that sound reasonably well.

he basically has a pedal lineup given from god. nobody....nobody has all these.

he also has 1-2 dumble amps. so basically you can never sound like him.

however, you can try to get close. you need a strat with HEAVY strings, strong fingers, a heavy SRV influence, a crancked amp (gotta be hot) but with not a ton of drive, and push it wth high quality ODS. 2 tube sreamers run in unison might get you close. common SRV thing.

your not gotta get that sustain with feedback without a very hot cranked tube amps.

While you can't beat the original for the world-ending wall of sound when Jimi kicks in the Fuzz Face after the intro, SRV's Fender/Strat version iz bettar:

Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

custom shop pickups make the biggest difference in trying to achieve that tone. a set of '69s would do nicely.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

+1 pretty much. (the original jimi version was probably a fuzz face (?) and a wah)

that was pretty awesome

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
