Mustang Monday Signature Series #6 – Jonny Lang
Week 6 in the Mustang Monday series is based on the live Jonny Lang tones from 1997. His tone is gritty, dirty, and simply awesome. Great tone and his controlled yet somewhat erratic style lead playing with great attack really makes the guitar sing. He was 16 years old when this video was shot and some consider this some of his best tone of all time. I like his new tone as well with the modified Deluxe Reverb amplifiers but that said, whatever he has in this clip, I’ve tried to emulate to the best of my ability.
I am using my solid body Fender 52 Telecaster with Joe Barden pickups for this model as I don’t have a Telecaster like Jonny Lang’s one in this clip and it sounds pretty sweet. Back the volume down and it cleans up, turn it up and it gets nasty! That coupled with an overdrive pedal as well to kick in more gain and volume and this patch sings for blues guitarists.
I really love this tone and it should work great for most type of guitars. Feel free to modify based on your particular guitar. Like I mentioned I have Joe Barden pickups in my Telecaster and they are fatter and thicker sounding that regular single coils so feel free to do a little tweaking to get it the way you want it.
I hope you enjoy this patch. You can download it from the Fender Fuse software by typing in “intheblues” or “Mustang Monday”. Or you can download it from the web here.
