If anyone knows, then can anyone mention what equipment James used when he was in the Stooges (Pre-Raw Power Demos, Raw Power, Live) and on Kill City... Thanks a lot! Smile

i'd like to know more about james' equipment, at least more detailed, what i do konw is that he used a VOX AC30 live, but a Marshall amp for recording (or vice versa, cant remember) um he stated he used a gibson B25, but i looked it up and its an acoustic, so he may have gotten it wrong, um otherwise, as far as guitars its gibson all the way with him, saw him using a flying V once, i think, maybe thats ron, aye its ron, but yeh, gibson, dunno specific models, so someone please enlighten us

I've just checked, via an email direct from the horse's mouth. The Gibson was an acoustic, a B25 natural, which he bought in London and on whcih he wrote most of the Raw POwer material. He still has it today. His Les Paul is a 1970s SUnburst Custom. ALl the rhythm work on Raw Power was amplified via a VOx AC30, with most of the lead on a Marshall. The acoustic guitar you can hear on Raw Power is a Martin D40, because it had a bigger sound on record than the Gibson.

For live work James mostly used Marshall stacks, altho occasionally they'd use whatever was available, including Fender Twins.

Thanks paul, as soon as i make a few million im gonna buy all those guitars/amps, i love the raw power sound, i get a razor edge-d-enuff sound out of a marshall myself, and a gibson, nicknamed the guitar 'mick jagger' cos of its jagged edge, lol, altho i broke that one, really liked it too

thanks again
