I will absolutely try that bud. If I can get it even closer to the original all the better. I know what you mean about the bite, especially in that slightly distorted part. If that doesn't work I may need to kick in a second drive pedal for just those two licks.Great! Thank you very much, 80s Man! Well played and the band sounds absolutely fantastic! IMHO, the guitar's perfectly blended in the mix and cut just enough.
Small suggestions: Increase the "Input Trim" parameter of the amp block a few notches, up to about 2 o clock? I also remember playing all parts with the bridge humbucker of my Tyler. This thing has a really hot output. I'm somehow under the impression you are using lace sensor pickups - I mean, I can vaguely remember you mentioning it!? In any care, if you haven't, try the humbucker for a bit more break up and a mid frequency boost. This will, IMHO, sound closer to the original. Great! Thank you very much!
You are correct that I am using a Lace Sensor Dually split to single coil in the bridge. I wonder if Mike Campbell played both pickups of his Tele for this one or just the bridge pickup? I haven't researched it so don't know or necessarily care since we are so darn close with it already but I will try a humbucker and report back. Thanks to you this song has gone from a every now and then tune to getting played every night.
