Hi all,

am in need of some advice. I currently own a 1989 fender Strat Plus with 3 Gold Lace Sensors and I find it hard to acheive that great fender tone. Was wondering if its down to the Lace sensors or if its the settings that are cr*p. I'm a decent enough player but am crap at amp (Marshall JCM2000/DSL401) and effect (BOSS-ME50) settings.

I would really like to have a similar sound to john frusciante with his 1962 strat : /

Any advice is appreciated.


1989 - Fender Strat Plus - Gold Lace Censors - 110s
2004 - Ibanez RG1570 Prestige - V7/S1/V7 - 110s
2005 - Ovation Celebrity Deluxe - EJ15
Marshall JCM2000/DSL401
search the ultimate setting forum and you will find some good amp settings of his.
