which do you prefer the rose wood strat years tone 67-68 or the latter maple neck tone late 68 on?
For me, THE Jimi sound is the tone on Like A Rolling Stone from the Monterey performance.
I always loved his sound at Monterey too but for me BOG was the ultimate.
It's Jimi...it's all great. lol
Holy shit this is good! That strat sounds like its going to explode!
I would say my favorite Jimi tone of all time is the Band Of Gypsys Fillmore tone. So Maple for me. Honestly, I don't know how much the neck wood translates to what we, the listeners hear in our easy chair though. I think it had more to do with the room he was playing in, the sound he dialed in and the recording techniques.
It is all in the single coils and mismatch strings
Not sure about the mismatched strings but you may be on to something!
So the story goes Jimi would put one smaller gauge string on his guitar and tune it down. That is how he got that jingle sound on his strat
Also The angle of the bridge pickup normally favors the treble strings. With Jimi stringing a right handed strat left handed the bridge pickup favors the bass strings.
Jimi used 10-38 strings
Though I have a '69 in rw, this is hard to beat.
