I've got the Digitech BP 80, and after playing around with it, I was able to get the same distortion tone, if you get one, i could explain exactly how to get it, but it sounds great

yep. He uses an old 70's Peavey head and two Acoustic heads, going to a pair of really old paper-cone Traynor 8x10s. For pedals, he uses an older Ibanez SC-10 stereo chorus and a Dunlop Crybaby GCB-90 guitar wah. he uses two basses, a Gibson Grabber and a Rick 4001 rewired to bypass the tone control and neck pickup, so it's all treble and maximum output.

What these guys said. No distortion pedal in sight. mountaindew88 has listed JFK's complete rig.

*** left some stuff out..........

occasionally he uses Ampeg 8x10s or Marshall cabinets live. The traynors are just for recording I believe, because while they are very dirty, they're only like 400 watts apeach.

thats pretty much what I have, the fuzz distortion (for those acoustic distroted heads) a crybaby effect, chorus, boosted treble, cut bass and mids a bit, and noise gate to help with muting, its actually the closest you can get to his tone with only 100 bucks, its not exact but it sounds close

If you noticed, his tone isn't that bassy with all that mid and treble, not to mention the use of guitar effects and a Rickenbacker.


Fitz would try to smother him in his sleep for lack of low end.


Although, JK still rocks.
