I saw Uli Jon Roth live last night, and went to one of his Sky Academy seminars, and was priveleged to meet and talk with him. He said that the pickups of his Sky Guitar have around 70-80 db of output, and that he can fry the front end of an amp with it (he fried an old Superlead before the show). He usually keeps his volume on the guitar down a bit, but he still gets plenty of gain and response. I want to try to approximate this tone with a Squier strat, a clean Marshall 30-watt solid state, a BOSS EQ, a BOSS OS-2, and a DOD 250 preamp. Anyone have any suggestions?
