Would I be able to reach the Chuck Berry sound using an American Deluxe V Neck strat? Could the single coils be able to get that clean rock kind of sound?

I'm thinking of the tone on Johnny B. Goode.

Yeh strats can do that, clean channel and a bit of gain on it (im not a berry fan though - so I could be completely wrong lol)
My Gear :
Fender American Strat in Metallic Red
EHX Big Muff
Boss ME-50
Boss SD-1
Fender 15 Watt Amp (Upgrade soon to a Marshall )
Red Furry guitar strap

o I'll explain - some amps have a gain control on the clean to give a bit more depth to the sound - as I said Im not a Berry fan

Clean channel on a vintage fender cranked up hard should do the trick


I think berry might have played gibby ES335s though

If I roll down the tone control on the bridge pickup to 8 it sounds more like a hollow body - could try that

Yeah, Chuck played semi hollows, but it'll be pretty easy to get close to his sound with a Strat. Hell, it's not that hard to get close with my Ibanez, just playing in the 4th position with the volume and tone tweaked a bit.
