But I don't really know if he used them. I've got an old Acoustic 60 watt tube combo with 6l6 tubes that is so bassy that when you hit a low E, your butt moves.
I'm gonna take off the amp and convert to a head though, the combo is just too heavy at about 85 lbs.
I have a feeling he's like me, used the middle position (both pickups) most of the time, at least with my dual-humbucker fat strat, it's the only position that is both warm and chimey.
