Checking in after a long time....wow, that was a terrific clip! Really, really close! Cool to hear you can get it with a stock amp too. The right Strat and not least that reverb does help in getting it to sound BOG-like.

Tell us about the Strat and the cab. Anything else in the signal chain? Biased at 80% huh, that’s pretty hot.

I used a Fender stratocaster 69 custom shop. signal chain: Guitar-TS808 Tube Screamer- amp and 4x12 Marshall 1960 AX cabinet, nothing else. No reverb, the recording has not been mixed with any other effect, the reverb is the natural one of the rehearsal room in which I recorded. But above all a great inspiration for the Hendrix sound guided me on the touch that I believe is essential to get the right sound.

Hey thanks Frank for clarifying that situation for us. It makes a lot more sense in my mind now. Good of you to share your insights.
