    No it wasn't. The pickup was disassembled and the magnet put in backwards. He also had the screws facing the bridge rather than the neck, which will make a subtle difference.

    Actually you are almost certainly wrong about the rewind and magnet stuff but right about the pickup orientation.

    Those who have examined the actual guitar tend to confirm the rewind explanation and not the popular DIY flipped magnet mod.

    Both Shed pickups and BKP provide replicas done through a reverse fender spec wind and they are as close to the actual pete green pups as you can really get.

    EC (in Cream) played mostly in the middle position with his neck pup on 10 and his bridge around 6-7 with his amp eq cranked. This was in a Cream documentary, you could probably find parts on youtube.

    Jimi also messed with his volume all the time on stage.

    That's a really bad idea - using the volume and tone controls on the guitar, that's what pedals are for.

    The video says Jumping at Shodows, but it isn't.
    What it is, is simply awesome Greeny.

    Can you get close to PG's tone with a Fender guitar?
    IME a Strat sounds too 'fendery' but a Tele with medium to hot output can...

    Do you agree?
