Gibson Les Paul special or Les Paul studio. NO IBANEZ: you will always hear a bad ringing tone when doing ching-ching with an Ibanez. Telecasters are fine too.

for rhythmic in roots rock reggae (70"):

for the skank there was the most time a gibson les paul with p90 pu's (singlecoils or for the tschicke-tschicke (you know ? like earl chinna) a fender stratocaster! i also saw @ burning spear a telecaster but listen to marcus garvey/garvey's ghost ! it's the badest offbeatguitar i've ever heard!! I want a buy a fender mex. classic 50, i think it's an allrounder ;) or should i buy a epiphone and put p90 inside ?? but the tschcike would sound bad i think

mh ;)

Yeah. Any electric guitar can be used for skank. Heavy gauge strings helpTube amps are best for a nice "chuck". Wah and phase with give you that nice early "squelchy" sound that Scratch was famous for... think black ark sound

At the moment, I am trying to achieve that really raw gritty chop sound (studio one).. like Horace Andy - Skylarking album

bit of extreme eq-ing gets me close Smile

P.S. just noticed i am 4 years late answering this forum !

Nice to have these blasts from the past.
It doesn't mater that the threads are old - the forum acts as a kind of knowledge base - it's all relevant additions.
Good to have new postings. Smile
