Hi All

Just starting out with guitar.

Would a fender telecaster be my best bet to replicate majority of his sounds?

I know it changes, but i'd like something versatile somewhat.

And how about a amp?

Thanks

Not really. But it would do fine anyway, if it has great pick-ups. It has to sound kinda vintage. Best option to me is a Les Paul with P90 pick-ups.

But, imho, playing a tube amp is the most important part of his sound. Lately he has been using a Vox-like amp, a JMI AC15 custom made to his specs. If you're looking for an amp get a Vox AC4 handwired for home use, or a Vox AC15 or 30 Handwired for live/band use.

The AC handwired was Brian's back up amp on the last tours in Europe.

Since Get Hurt he said that he'd only play JMI amps and that still hold true to this day. But these are really expensive, and a VOX amp will just do fine.

Also, Brian use only a few pedals, as opposed to Alex R. which has a lot. Brian usually has a Fuzz for the later stuff, and an overdrive/boost (get yourself an EHX Soul Food, you're gonna love it with a tube amp). There's not much beside those, it's pretty much all about the guitar straight to the amp, with the amp run on the clean side of dirty. IMHO Brian is all about the songs and the songwriting. He has to play rhythm guitar + sing, which is already a lot to do. I think his sound is more related to the way he plays than to really a specific amp or guitar.

There are plenty of topics on TGA's gear over here. Just use the search function.

Do you guys know anything about Brian's acoustic Gibson? It's the one he uses in most of the MATZ videos I've seen and in some solo stuff:

Looks like a Gibson J-50 or J-45, but the prewar logo makes it tricky. I can't find that exact model.
Could also be a Country western, but it has dot inlays and not blocks...
