Has anyone actually found out how to make the Boston guitar tone? I really like it, and when learning Boston songs I think it would be cool to have.

Les Paul
Dimarzio Super Distortion humbucker
old Marshall tube amp
MXR Distortion+
and an MXR Flanger too I think
tape delay (but just go for an analog delay pedal)

and lots of careful use of EQ and compression....and multitracking and other studio trickery....the guy is a studio genius, that first Boston album was done in his basement and it sounds amazing

edit: wow, the dude has got a masters degree in mechanical engineering from MIT and only started playing guitar when he was 21

Sweet, thanks!

Yeah, the guy was a genius. He made his own mini-amp, and owned an engineering company.
