Exacty what the hell IS the "vintage" sound? Can you give some examples?
I don't think I've ever heard that "vintage" sound.
Do you listen to Zeppelin Cream Hendrix Etc .. Then you have heard the "Vintage Tone"
The only why to really describe it to you is for you to go and Play a "real" Vintage guitar.
Something from the Mc Cathy era or Pre CBS
