Gibson Burstbucker Pro vs Gibson 57 Classic plus Van Halen 1 sound


Recommended Posts

57 Classic is closest to the few PAFs I've had the joy of playing in my life.  He stuck an old PAF in his weird strat thing, and you can't get them these days.  I said "dimmer" in my post, he variac'd his amp with an actual living room wall switch dimmer.  So some of the sound you hear is an old Marshall being tortured by the wrong voltage and the volume on 10.  Very sag-y and compressed, but easily done today.  I do it with a Blues Jr and a couple gain pedals set right, phaser barely on and some chorus because I don't have a flanger because I only use it for VH so I got rid of the last one I had and immediately had three VH songs put in the list.  Same as it ever was.
