i was woundering if anybody knew if different guitars sounded different when you are still using the same effect

Single Coil to a Humbucker has a huge difference.
Say a PRS & a LP, there wouldn't really be much difference, but a PRS/LP and a Strat is a huge change.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Appart from being on UG or wanking, thats what i mostly do

yes but im saying if i use like a sg with distortion on and then switch to another guitar like an explorer will it sound the same with the same effect on
#4
im still a little confused on what you are asking but every different guitar, even the same brand, same type, made one after the other will have a different personality. sometimes these differences are extremely subtle yet sometimes these can be drastic. in your case i believe the change will be subtle

All guitars have a different tone, but the effect will change the tone of each guitar in the same way.

Does that answer your question?
#10
Different guitars should sound different with a quality effects pedal. A good pedal will be transparent enough to let the tonality of the guitar shine through. If all your guitars sound alike either the guitars are crap or the pedal is crap (or both.) This also applies to amplifiers.

...or your ears aren't trained enough to tell the difference, which may just be the case in this situation

Could you be more specific?

what guitars?

what effect?
#13
woww it wanst that hard to understand what he meant..

HE ASKS THAT IF HE TAKE A EFFECT, lets say DS-1.

and use it on a Stratocaster , and then using it on a Les Paul- SAME AMP/Settings.

will it sound the same? will it be the same Distortion effect?
or the guitar shape it...

that what he asks, done.
#14
Changing up guitars while using the same effect sounds as different as if you were playing clean and switching guitars. The guitar construction and p-up config has lots to do with the overall sound and tone of each instrument. Could explain my sig.

I am also a firm believer that tone comes from the fingers and playing style. Once you get some time on the instrument and start to find that how hard you fret (it's very suttle) on the strings, where you fret, and how you use your pick, you will start to see some of the same.

This isn't some grand argument over being enlightened or blah blah, it's arguing the semantics of what "tone" is.
