Anyone got any idea's of how to replicate Weller's guitar tone in The Jam?

I've got a Ric 330 and a Laney Vc30

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers

Soulnd like you must be close anyway. after that its all about those slashing chords.
he plays some odd shapes, kinda soul or jazz influenced, the bass actually carries the song a lot,weller is really aggresive on those jam numbers

Rickenbacker 330 semi-acoustic guitar (2 pick-ups) - the famous American-made guitar formerly associated with Pete Townsend and the early Who, and also John Lennon and George Harrison of the Beatles during the late sixties.

Jedson Les-Paul Copy (which he used in The Jam early days

Strings - Rotosound

Vox AC30 valve combo amplifier.

Studio only: Ovation acoustic guitar.

Well that's a great setup. The Ric is what he used and the VC30 is basically poor mans VC30 so, it's a great start!

Yeah, all you need to do is play around the amp, you should be able to get a pretty spot-on Weller tone with that setup.

Paul weller is pretty cool on those old recordings, these days he plays around with telecasters and those big semi acoustics.

Pretty obvious the second was supposed to be an AC30. You've never made a mistake?

It all depends on what songs and what album tones you are after. The Laney will definitely cover the Vox and Marshall (yes, that's right, Marshall...) that Weller produced in his Jam days. One thing to maybe do with the VC30 is to keep the tone knob up past half, be economical with the mids on some songs. Songs like "Saturday's Kids" might be helped with the bright switch too.
