Re: John Frusciante's Setup

He uses Fender Strats into Marshalls, his main distortion pedal is the Boss DS-2 (also Kurt Cobain's main distortion) he also uses an mxr phase 100, electro harmonix micro-synth, Boss CE-2 chorus(very cool, better than the later boss choruses) and an ibanez wah.

Re: John Frusciante's Setup

he uses 2 marshall silver jubilee's and one marshall 1959 slp's. he has a 62' fender strat with a rosewood fingerboard, a 55' fender strat with a maple fingerboard (both are strung with d'adario 110's with an 11 guage high E string). a gretch white falcon strung with 12's. his effects are...a boss DS1, a boss turbo overdrive OD2, a boss fuzz FZ3, a Boss chorus ensemble CE5, a boss compression sustainer CS3, a Dunlop stereo uni-vibe, an original boss chorus ensemble CE1, an ibanez WH-10 wah, an electro harmonix micro synth, an electro harmonix 16 second digtal delay,an electro harmonix holy grail reverb, oh and plus a fender jaguar. that as much as i can remember off the top of my head, please add more if you can............

Re: John Frusciante's Setup

Re: John Frusciante's Setup

Here it really is, He has a 1962 fender strat, a 1955 fender strat, a 1963 fender telecaster, a 1955 gretsch white falcon, a martin 00-17 acoustic.
For amps he uses a Marshall 200watt Major and two Marshall 25/50 silver jubilee's. For pedal's he uses a Boss ds2, a ibanez wh-10 wah wah, a MXR micro amp for a clean boost, a mooger fooger 12 stage phaser, a Zachary Vex Fuzz factory, a boss FV-50h volume pedal, a Line 6 Dl-4 delay modeller, a Line-6 FM-4 Filter modeller, a Boss master switch for the second loop of pedals, an Electro harmonix electric mistress Flanger, An Electro Harmonix Big Muff pi, Boss CE-1 Chorus ensemble. I set my amp to Treble/Middle/Bass
5/8/4 and either the neck or bridge singlecoil pickup to acheive his sound, also put the drive on about 1 and a half to get the thick punchy tone!

Enjoy

does he use an origial 62 strat or a reissue

Re: John Frusciante's Setup

hey, u asked if john uses a vintage 1962 strat or a re-issue and the answer to that is that it is a vintage 1962 strat. all his guitars are vintage, he doesnt like playing new guitars, he likes a classic sound from guitars and you cant achieve that from new guitars. happy to answer the question, thomasxxx

Re: John Frusciante's Setup

: does he use an origial 62 strat or a reissue

John Frusciante's 1962 strat is orginal. Anthony Kedis bought it for him, when they came back together. (right before Califoniacation) They talk about this in Anthonys new book "Scar Tissue"

Re: John Frusciante's Setup

He also has his middle pickup wired with reverse phase, which gives him his distinct tone...
