1977 Les Paul Deluxe (With minibuckers). I find that the mini's work great for being able to sound either like a humbucker or like a single, but also sounding something totally there own.

ltd h-250 on its single coil mode, great tone. my favorite country/ blues technique would have to be double stops

I put on the crunch channel, gain at around 5. Turn up the amp volume, roll down the guitar's volume. I use my main guitar, Ibanez S470, using the 2nd position (bridge/middle) for both rhythm and some lead, and I sometimes put it to just the bridge bucker for lead.

I usually put on some reverb or phaser, or sometimes reverb and a slight echo effect for some cool solo tones.

Fender American hardtail.. mostly for the feel of the neck, blues tone be damned (blues isn't about tone or gear, it's about the feeling)

Les Paul. It sings through my guitar teacher's Fender tube amp.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

Is now, and pobably always will be my MIJ Fender Esquire, Sparkling clean arpeggios, raunchy overdriven lead, fuzzed out rhythm... I love it, I like to play on the 'neck' setting and it has a volume drop and is kinda fuzzy but sounds creamy then slap it back into 'bridge' position and it brightens up and just jumps out at you for leads.

The pickups is really responsive to picking dynamics too.

I'm buying a new amp in England for blues. I'm thinking possibly a Hiwatt or Matchless.

i modded my dunlop original crybaby GCB-95 wah. Fasel inductor, 56k vocal resistor, mid boost mod, more bass mod.

btw, i tried 100k, and 68k for the vocal resistor. 56k works the best. 33k was the original
