Pickup Question


Recommended Posts

Hi all


This is probs a very newby question, but does the sound that is achieved from an electric guitar come from the amp's filters or the pickups alone.

I know that it varies from guitar to guitar, but gibsons, sg's and les paul's in particular... Can you get that "gibson sound" from just plugging one in without having an uber awesome amp?

I have played my les paul through really crappy amps and people were amazed by the sound...



try to tweak the amp as in play with the bass and treble controls if it has them, i always put the controls in the middle to start off with....


good luck..
