This is the sound rig used by so many players. Want The Doors? Add a fuzz pedal for the lead guitar stuff. Want AC/DC? Use this setup exactly, but wear a school boy uniform. It's that simple. You should recognize this tone from many rock legends.

The guitar has PAF pickups which seem to be made to create this tone. You can try this setup with any guitar that has PAFs and get a similar tone. We used a slight overdrive to boost the tone here. You can use more or less to taste. We turned the amp up to about 6 with the Highs on 7 and the Low on about 4. Use your ear and guage your audience to see if you're doing it well.
