How does he get that fat low sound. I know the kind of pickups he used but he always had that really sweet low sound. How does he do that?

I'm sure his rig had something to do with it, but I firmly believe tone has alot more to do with the fingers of the man who is playing than anything else.

i feel like he used heavy strings and the his unique rig, all together gave that sound.

There are a few threads related to JG's sound in the Grateful Dead Equipment forum. The one titled "help with my sound" will probably be the most helpful

Here's a Yahoo Group whose purpose is to talk about the Dead's sound:

I'm sure you'll find something useful there.
