here was the path:

07 gibson les paul studio

to

Mesa/Boogie Dual Caliber DC-5 amp head on the Lead Channel. Stock.
(see below for amp settings)

to

Mesa Engineering Recto 212 closed back cabinet with Vintage 30's in it.

Anyone else care to speak up on these & similar types of rigs

Dude sweet, it already looks kickass, I wonder how it sounds. Well to be honest, I have a pretty damn good Slash Tone, and I use a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe tube amp. OWNAGE :p

Take that dude's wah away and he is dead in the water.....

He can play, just that I can predict what he is going to do and it cracks me up. If you are a guitar legend, that is ok....but he is not and never will be. Wonder why that is?

that default black t-shirt with the white or red Metallica logo is basically what we consider a "town" shirt...

and oh btw, lets say KH's tone DOES suck,
tell us about your tone and how it's killing it.

and could we hear an mp3 or a youtube of somethin?

I didn't mean to come off rude, I do sound that way some times.
My gtr playing is mediocre at best. I don't think anyone wants to hear that

There was a thread not to long ago that had a good suggestion, how about our own tone? Instead of I want Slash's tone, or who ever's tone. Use who ever your favorite player is to inspire you to create your own tone. Just a thought.

Most guitar players are never satisfied with their own tone. I for one change my mind right when I think I have it nailed down. It's all about evolving.

Beside, my tone doesn't count. I do not peddle my wares for a living nor did I post a thread insisting my tone was the sh*t.

So as a fan of music, I think wah wah wah Hammett's tone is ok, his playing is just extremely predictable. Many others are too, but change it up a little Kirk! Leave the wah pedal at home for one tour.....I dare you!

Dude, I've got the most gnarly "Hipofutura" tone. I mean it's like no other, dude It's freaking awsome!

I'll post my setup so when Slash reads this he can learn how. It came to me in a vision during yoga class right after I ate a huge bowl of guacamole. Go figure!

Les Paul Classic antique -> MXR Dyna Comp compression -> EH Memory Man -> Phaez Daisycutter.

Dude, it doesn't matter how I turn all those knobs. I mean it's like just mind blowing!
