Longtime lurker, firsttime poster. I've made liberal use of the search function too but haven't found any answers specific to my query.
Anyways! I have a nice Gibson SG. 500k pots, PIO caps, 70s T Top in neck, 57 Classic in bridge.
I've decided to move the 57 into the neck slot for more creamy tones, but the t top is weak and almost single coil. Nice for clarity in the neck slot, not much else. The 57 was pretty good but only into a fully ODed amp. Otherwise it's kind of wimpy and just at the verge of icepicky.
I'm looking for good vintage rock tones. Angus, Clapton, Steve Jones, Johnny Thunders, Keith Richards, Pete Townshend... gritty, raw, warm, fat, bright, and raunchy. I'm running this into a 72 50 watt plexi or a 60s Silvertone Tweed into a 2x12 with a vintage G12h30 and an old greenback.
Any thoughts? The important thing is I'm looking for something not too hot, but not shrill with 500k tone pots. Bright is okay but not harsh.
Thanks for any input!
