"Taking Care of No Business", I'm pretty sure it's from the earlier days of the Hendrix Experience. I love the thick Single Coil tone in this track but can't find any info on how it was recorded or what was used. You guys have any amp or pickup suggestions for this tone?

At the time he was using either a Fender Twin Reverb, or a Marshall 100 Super Lead.

sounds like a humbucker equipped guitar in the middle position into some kind of fender amp to me

Sounds indeed like a humbucker guitar, more specifically some kind of hollowbody. Indeed odd for Hendrix.

Holy crap, I may have answered my own question... and it seems we're all wrong . I'm not even sure Hendrix is playing guitar on that track. That was recorded with Curtis Knight and the Squires and there just happen to be pictures from the session!

I have no idea what the guitar is but the pickups look like those found on midrange Tiesco/Silvertones... kinda like a really fat single coil but not quite a P90. And the only amp I can make out is an Ampeg, maybe a reverberocket?
