I’m using a Stratocaster guitar, but any guitar is suitable. Choose the neck pickup for a warm, round tone.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set the amp for a clean on the edge of breakup sound. Set the Drive to 35%, Bass to 50%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 55%, and Presence to 60%.

For your crunch sound, kick in an overdrive pedal for more gain.

I’m using 10-46 string gage with a heavy pick. Add some reverb for depth.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 35% Bass: 50% Mid: 55% Treb: 55% Presence: 60%
Blues Driver:
Gain: 75% Tone: 50% Level: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 25%
