Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

Mick Ronson's tone is achieved best with either: a wah wah pedal (preferably Jim Dunlop cry baby) or a distortion pedal that you can adjust the EQ of... Marshall governor etc.

A small amount of distortion, with the mids turned right up and the bass and trebble rolled off a little.

Or, a Marshall amp, of Marshall sort of distortion with bass, middle, and treble turned all the way up.. THEN hunt around for that quaky mid range by slowly sweeping with the wah pedal. You should find it towards the bottom end, sounds really hollow. That's pretty much how he did it!

Oh, and a hum bucking guitar on the bridge pick-up!

Like the person said above me.

Humbuckers, tonebender clone, half-cocked wah into a british amp.

Check out, the Phoenix Custom Electronics Lady Stardust, for a very nice tonebender clone.
