I really like this tone on this set but I cant figure out how to dial it in since the recording audio is really bad. I know he has a guitar with p90s in it but do you think I can get somewhat close with singlecoils or a humbucker?

If you coat any bridge pickup in that much gain, it’ll sound similar, imo. Sounds pretty mid heavy.

I’d bet you could get something similar with a lot of guitars. When something is so saturated with distortion, the pickup matters less and less.

Thanks ill try that
Are you using a certain distortion pedal, or amp distortion?
I’d think if you go high gain, very loud amp, you’ll get pretty darn close.

Strat single coil bridge pickup probably isn’t ideal for this amount of gain, but it can work. I play with a decent amount of gain on a Strat bridge sometimes. Never to this extreme though.

Im trying to do this with my mustang lt25 amp since I can bring it around
I love my old mustang amp for high gain. Try the Supersonic amp model, burn mode, gain cranked, maybe add another distortion effect too.

With the right amount of gain and EQ shaping, it should be easy to get in this ballpark.
