Need some help on equipment to get my desired tone

Postby Gratefullydreaming » Tue May 09, 2017 2:42 pm

Hey guys, big Bobby fan here. I'm a fairly intermediate player who started playing 2 years back, learned on an acoustic so my knowledge of going loud is quite limited. I've started to get more into playing loud after I realized the Bobby voicings are so much easier on electric. I have learned a fair amount of his play style and his use of the cage system and have implemented it into my playing where I find myself staying away from the first positions. I have a G&L legacy, and an Ibanez ARC300 plugged into a Line 6 spider IV amp. I can scratch the surface of his nice clean tone that I like when I use my Ibanez and mess with the phaser setting on my amp but I am always messing with it to see what sounds best. Could anyone hear give me some tips on what I can do next to further my desired tone? Even some basic tips on amp settings would be appriciative. I would also like to know what things I could buy and install to get closer to the tone... I know I could get a middle pickup or a pedal would give me more but I just need someone to help steer me in the right direction.... I love bobby's tone in 77 on Terrapin, estimated, and LLR along with many other years. Thanks !!

First thing I would buy is a Roland JC77 amp.
If you have a guitar with H/S/H pickup configuration. swap out the pickups to DiMarzio 36 anniversary PAFs neck and Bridge and an Area 61 middle pickup. That alone will put you in a very good place.

I don't have a hb/s/hb ... Only hbs then a 3 single coil.. Would it be cheaper to have one installed or buy a new guitar
