78 is one of my favorite years. Call me a a nihilist or whatever, but 78 had some energy of 77 with some darker undertones. In addition, its my favorite Jerry tone year. I was listening to Dick's Pick's 25 the other day. The tone on the Scarlet is my favorite example of Jerry tone, and I really want to figure out if it was recorded with bucker wolf or single coil wolf. It came from a May 10 show. Thanks for the input.
Search posts by GRATEFULREDHEAD. He's getting some very 78 tone with his custom modded LTD strat I believe.
Matt, I'm flattered that you would Point our friend in my direction for example of good 78 tone. That is pretty much my favorite era of Jerry's Tone, If I were forced to pick one. I like almost all of them for one reason or another but that's consistently my most favorite. I think what's really been getting me to that place lately is this Aria Pro Guitar that I had Brian at IO guitars customize for me. He did sort of a hybrid late Wolf and Tiger sort of setup. It's got the scale length of Tiger in that it's 25 and 1/2 in, Wolf had a shorter scale I believe 25" like a Paul Reed Smith. But the pickups are humbuckers, the super distortions, I run them split a lot but I also use the humbuckers especially when I'm using the mutron. I can point you to some videos if you'd like just let me know and I'll send you some links. And I'll let you know what my settings are and all the rest of my gear chain if you're interested. Best of luck in your quest for that tone! It's amazing how many great resources there are on this forum people like Matt, Waldo, Brian, the list goes on and on and on.
