How can I make my les paul sound more "meaty" like Slash?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi all im new to the guitar, and recently bought a epiphone les paul standard and a roland cube 5watt amp. The problem is that even after adjusting the amp settings I cant get that traditional "Meaty" rock sound. Has anyone got any suggestons as to how I can get it sounding better? I have a very small budget to buy anymore equipment that I might need to do this, so cheap suggestions would be great!!!

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

Bass - 8
Mid - 7.5
Treble - 5

That should get it a bit heavier, just toggle around with the bass and mid until you get the sound you want.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

You need a vintage Marshall amp with 100W of tube power.

Stop spamming the forums with duplicates of the same thread.

the one you have in EG is fine: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=978099

The two you have in the Pit are not.

5 watts? I didn't know they made guitar amps that weak

Put your meat in it!

But seriously, how is your amp set up? Slash tends to have Lows all the way up, Mids at about 60% and highs at about 50%

But you could always go for the Dimebag tone.
Lows-11
Mids-2
Highs-9

It's a tube though (I believe)

Whatever it is I know they're a good brand anyway, so it probably cost a fair bit

Perhaps a quick browse of the rules would've set you straight.

Doesn't he use a JCM 800 at lot?
Oh an a Gibson Les Paul 87 Standard that has been broken twice and is like 25 years old.
Skills too.

and don't forget about the cigarettes...

seriously 5wat amp is too low man.. maybe something like 20wat then play with the bass and mid.
#31
if you don't have enough wattage, there's prob not much you can do. but, when slash plays 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and a lot of others, he uses the neck pickup and cuts the tone almost too zero......i have a epi les paul standard too and i can get almost the exact tone by doing that.
