Great metal tone off a large hollowbody
Other than adopting underage girls to be wife or talking fast and loose with threatening commander in chief, "crazy" sometimes works well when thinking of getting arguably one of the first modern metal tones, but via a full hollowbody. (I want to make this about hollowbodies and hard rock/metal/punk
, and not comparing or judging Ted with other dubious, yet extremely talented individuals like Michael Jackson or Phil Spector).
First, how does he do so at such high volumes?
And secondly, how come nobody out there has attempted this amp combo since?
Who else here likes hollowbodies but sometimes likes to kick in the old Tube Screamer and turn the amp up?
We all know of Ibanez player Tom Morello with his Ibanez AS or Klaus Meine with his ES-335, but those were semi-hollowbodies which is a big difference.
I used JCM 900 and 2000 heads through 4x12 or 8x12 Celestions with Ibanez AS-73 semi-hollobody but it's not doable at really high concert volumes and f-holes make it scary. If I work the volume control on every tune, it's OK though. I do like the Ibanez AF series and wonder just how far I can go with Marshalls and/or distortion.
