What makes christian rock guitar tones different from other rock guitar tones?

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

I want an amp good for playing hippie tunes. I want it to be an actual amp, not a tube amp.

Seriously, what tone are you looking for TS? Christian Rock is like one of those broad, generic tack on type terms.

umm...there is no difference! Rock is rock. Christian rock is just rock that has faith based lyrics. You should name specific bands as the tones could range from Audio Adrenaline (clean funk to grunge) to Kutless to Switchfoot to Pillar.

lol Christian rock pickups...

Holier tones I suppose. But seriously, skip SD and go for GFS.

Respectful of what? It's the internet, and it was kind of a silly question. No harm in a little joke.

I know it was silly sounding...but come on.


Do you not pray at every meal, do you not pray for money, health and happiness.. Whats wrong with asking for some pickups, or getting the church to help out with your gear fund...

I thought you were being condescending...if you weren't then I apologies for being overly presumptive. I still would like to know what kinda tone he wants out of his neck pickup.

I'm pretty sure Seymour Duncan makes some cross shaped pickups. A whole bunch of death metal bands use them, but they flip 'em upside down to sound more brutal.

custom shop 69's are my favorite strat pickups for single coils and if you have a strat with a humbucker i would try the pearly gates it has a really transparent gain output that lets the guitar tone really ring through the distorion and would be great for the sound your trying to get whether it be god rock or jesus jazz
