    yup, SSL-1s

    I'm going from memory, but SD gave him a couple models to try, and supposedly, he liked the SSL-1s

    he's got a vintage strat, though, and I wouldn't be surprised if it has original pickups

    here's another thread:

    you might do a search for "Frusciante" and see if you get anything else

    Even if he doesn't use the SSL-1s, they will probably get you close to his tone, with the right amp of course.
