I've read all I could find about Robin Trower
's sound and he seems to play stock strats and does very little to mod or replace his pickups. It's basically a stock guitar setup for him.
I've got a stock American Fender and I've been playing through the neck pickup
but I can't get his sound enough to my liking. A few guys have told me to get some hotter pickups from Dimarzio, etc., but the last thing I want to is change the single coil sound and get a humbucker thing going. I've already got a Gibson SG if I have a need for a fat humbucker tone.
I know about RT's pedal setup. If anybody has heard Another Day's Blues CD, that's the tone I am looking to get.
Do I need more gain?
Anybody have some ideas.
