    Re: Hot Rails SONGS

    scott from fu manchu has been using the hotrails since at least "action is go"

    and bob switched over from an sg w/ a jb when they went to the armstrong guitars .. california crossing ..

    Thats like 4-5 albums worth of tunes ...

    like i said, rainmaker was an old paul. maybe even a original 50's with the original 57's cos that sound is so buttery it's insane..

    the solo on nomad can very well be the hotrail, but on studio albums you cannot be 100% unless you have it written or video footage

    Oh and, by the way, for all those buttery tones (those are my favourites by far, Murrays solo on The Nomad, and the Rainmaker tones)... oh my... what pickups did he use? What guitar?!

    for another metal user
    check out the new arch enemy records
    the fast lead player (michael ammots bro - forgot his name) uses hot rails in the neck of his signature Caparison guitar
    u can tell from the solo tones which pickup it is
    listn out for blistering shred, that sounds like its in the neck position - thats him

    the michael ammot solos are different - they are slower, so keep ur ears out and ull pick the right solos!

    No I never said it would give some type of mojo, but I know for a fact Morello has never changed the tubes in his JCM800 2205 (I posted 2210 earlier, my mistake. I'll edit the post now)

    And you are completely right about the speaker/cab I just never knew the name of the speakers he was using.

    This post has really gone off topic. I apologize, I'm partially to blame.

    the soul power strat does have an ibanez floyd on it. he prefers it to the newer (more stable) bridges that ibanez has out now.
    the soul power strat also has a KILL switch as well as the standard 5 way to do his volume/toggle thingy.
    to my knowledge, he has never used emg's, but his arm the homeless does have humbuckers.
    The Arm the homeless has EMG's...and it was used for almost ALL of the Audioslave record.

    The Telecaster stayes in Drop D

    I just find it strange that Fender used an Ibanez trem, on one of their guitars

    The kill switch on the soul power strat is just like the one on the Creamy guitar...on the ATH guitar hid did turn down the NECK pickup to do the gateing FX...

    as far as the neck pickup remark...tom uses the neck ppup on the tele almost all the time...but really only on that guitar.

    The Red and white Ibanez 335, has several built in FX...including a whammy pedal...

    The Cherry EDS-1275 is STOCK...

    He used a Les Paul Standard on the Audioslave record to back up the Drop B tracks...and in his won words used the "rock" pickup...meaning the bridge...this guitar sees quite a bit of live use with Audioslave

    The Ibanez Talman...has a pickup booster built in that never worked right...when Tom heard the sound it made he told them to leave it alone.

    He also has a baby blue Roadstar II with a single EMG, volume control and a kill switch that was a backup for the ATH guitar...

    and for the record...not changing your tubes will not give you some kind of signature tone or any kind of mojo...

    Re: Hot Rails SONGS

    I do have a good close up picture, which I would be glad to post or send when I find it...which might take a while...it is used for mostly Drop B stuff...the Telecaster is used mostly for Drop D...and FYI, the Soul POwer Strat(With the HotRail was only used for a few overdubs on the Audioslave Record...he got it just before the record was done...the bulk of that record is the Arm the homeless guitar). BTW, has anyone noticed that that guitar has an Ibanez Lic. Floyd on it, I only mention it because, it suposedly came from Fender like that!!!

    Im not so sure about that. His "Arm the Homeless" guitar has EMG Humbucking pickups (not sure of the model, one of the 80's)

    Also, he turns the volume completely off on one of his pickups and uses the toggle as a kill switch. I always thought it was the neck he turned completely off. Maybe you know something I dont? If so, please share! Morello is one of my favorite guitarists so I'd like to know as much as possible about him.

    I've never seen a pic of the Creamy... could you send me one? I thought he used "Creamy" on "Freedom" which is in DropD?

    Thanks!

    One thing I always say about Morello's tone... it's less about the guitar he's using and more about his amp. JCM 800 2210 circa 85 or 87. He has NEVER changed the tubes. THAT is the secret to the tom morello tone. (I'm not referring to his weird DJ things, just his basic guitar tone).

    I dont think anything you hear on Audioslave will scream "this is a hotrails" although he does use it most of the time (not sure if he recorded with them though).
