can't seem to get a tone like this, especially the intro. How do i achieve this? i was thinking lots of mids and treble with a little bit of over drive???
my modeling amp has the option to either play a amp clean or overdrivern, should i go to the overdriven channel and use that? or use it clean with one of the stomp boxes it has? (Tube Screamer)

single coil equiped guitars and light overdrive for amp. tubescreamer thru clean amp setting will most likely get you in the ball park. this type of overdrive is one of the things that modeling amps still have a tough time duplicating.

oh and i really hate that song

modelers just haven't got the programing curve that works for those types of tones down yet. they can kinda get it but it just doesn't sound as close to a tube amp as the models with heavey distortion. just take some time to experiment and i'm sure you can get close enough to get by.

oh sorry just not a georgia satellites fan

might be fuzz? i agree it seems to be single coils.

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.

would you say this is a single coil in the bridge position or the neck position??

bridge i think. it has that brightness that the bridge normally has. that's just the first bit, i didn't listen to the whole thing.

Tele, bridge PU, tone rolled off a bit, Brit voiced tube amp. This on-the-edge of breakup is unobtanium for all but the best modeling amps. It is also the place my guitar lives.

just can't get over that tone, would you agree that the overdrive is more of a natural overdrive? the amp overdrives itself, or do you think it uses a slight amount of distortion from a pedal? unfortunately i only have my practice peavey vypyr right now

Might be an OD pedal into tube amp. I'm not sure which amp he uses here but he used to use Hiwatt.

It's either a strat or a tele (I believe Tele) run into a tube amp just on the edge of breakup (or with an overdrive in front juuuust barely gained).

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.
