Here's a similar setup to the last setup we heard. We take the PAFs in the SG style guitar and pair it with a chimey, British tube amp. How can a combination so similar to another configuration sound so differently? This is the magic of the gear you choose!

Here the amp is Volume 4, Low 3, Mid 3, High 6.Use slight reverb (when in doubt, it should sound as if it can't be noticed). We used an overdrive pedal to slightly boost the tone. The drive is on about 1. The boost comes from the volume of the pedal and the way the amp reacts to that boost. This amp develops that cutting, glassy tone with the combo.
