  • Luther Alison sound from a L6s

    Hi guys, I'm not familiar with this guy but a friend of mine asked about getting a similar blues sound from his l6s... Do you have any recommendations?

    I'm tempted to recommend something along the Alnico pro II or jazz... even Seths...

    Can you help, I'm not a blues champion...

    Thanks

    He used a Les Paul Classic (among other things), so if you're talking about that tone, maybe a Custom

      Thanks for the reply curly! As I said I'm not familiar at all with this guy so I'm a little puzzled... A custom really? Won't that be a little over the top for blues? It sounds great in my ltd for harder music... I'm not doubting your input, just wondering.... Since it's a maple guitar it might sound bright with a custom... but as I said I cannot say I know the guy's tone... thanks curly!

        Surgeon,
        sorry, I wasn't up on L6 specs ...

        Luther was playing a Classic, as well as Blade strats. I based my answer on the fact that I think of the LP Classic pickups as hot ceramic pickups - pics of Luther looked to me as though the pickups were stock.

        I agree with you, though ... for a maple body, I'd use the A2 pickups like AP2, Seth, or CC for a hot choice

        I'll defer to someone who really knows, though ...
        -----------------------------

        I pulled out my Luther albums, and it shows him playing 3 different LPs, all with covers - a GoldTop, a Standard, and a Custom - as well as an ES-335 type, and his Blade strat. I remember seeing pics of him with a Classic as well, as I said.
        I remember his tone as being a hot blues tone, but it's been a while since I listened to those - maybe I'll put 'em on and get back to you.
