If i were going for his sound which i know is impossible to fully achieve. but what pickups would i want to go with. and also is it true he used size 13 guage strings? someone told me this because they said he had very large and strong hands. any help would be appreciated thanks

50's/60's strat, loaded with 13 guage string, extremely hot pickups, TS808, Fully cranked Fender Twin. there ya go

a strat, set up with 13 gauge strings in Eb standard tuning, and gigantic frets and a thick pick, played through a cranked Fender blackface will get you there.

and no, if you have a single coil spickup, u'd be able to get close with that setup. although it would be closer if u had a nice set of pickups.

I use .11's. I might go up to .12's.

If anyone cares that is. They're not that hard to bend once you get used to 'em.
