I've been toying with the idea of Jerrifying an SG custom -- which is all mahogany, so maybe that would have some effect. My plan was to put a Dual Sound in the middle, and then Super II in the N & B.

Go listen to Live Dead again... That's all jerry with an SG through a Twin.
If the Saint Stephen->Eleven doesn't convince you that Jerry sounds good through a SG... Nothing will!

Why does it have to b a 3 pup LP? Why not add a third o to a classic two pup model.
Mine is the smaller double cutaway so I didn't really have room to add a third himbicker but honestly I
Don't need it. 99% of the time it's set so all 3 r on single coil & it nails the Jerry tone.
That's why it's not really a big deal to change the pup selector to a rotary bc there's not veryany times where u need to change your pup during songs, Jerry rarely changed his. Every pic I've seen he has his in middle selection.
Having that middle single coil is absolutely critical for getting the Jerry tone
jenkins wrote:Killer thread Waldo, totally crucial info. It's very interesting to see what selection he's using where.
When jerry's guitar is set on middle setting of the 5 way are all of his pups on or is it just his middle pup?

jenkins wrote:Cool, I guess I just assumed all 3 were on.
Does Jerry ever use middle pup on humbucker mode?
