Man I haven't been in this thread a couple if days & suprised it went the direction it did. With that I will defend Rob in that I have never seen him post or request others bash another modder... I wish I could say the same applied to some of the other modders. What I have noticed is that it always seems to be the Salvo or anti-JF people seeing a slight toward a different modder & then insinuating evil intentions from Rob.
As far as the references to the behind the scenes BS, I don't know what that is supposed to be about. My opinion is it is a bunch of hearsay & conspiracy BS.

Now I think it is time for some clips. :lol:

What amazes me is that these comments keep coming. All that needed to be said was written long ago and the piling on is unnecessary. I wish for the sake of the forum, we could all move on to what matters, our love for all thing MTS. Just my two cents.

I'll never understand where this notion that George Lynch used a Soldano on Wicked Sensation came from. He used Aspen Pittman's 1971 purple Plexi with a Boss SD-1 on nearly every track and used a JC120 for cleans. There was a Soldano in the studio but it wasn't used on the record, from what I've been told.

I confirmed this with George himself back in 1990 when I met him while he was on tour. The amp is also featured in his Star Licks video with Max Norman and is clearly visible.

I think Rob perfectly emulated the SLO-100, including its notoriously slow response. I've always preferred Bogner's and Marshall's because of their faster response. The Soldano's have never felt "right" for me. Great tone, wrong feel.

FWIW, George used a Bogner Fish for the majority of the second Lynch Mob record.

According to George's website posts that he and his longtime friend/guitar tech Gerry G put together regarding the 1992 Lynch Mob second record "Lynch Mob":

"I bought two 50-watt Marshall plexi's in Japan six months earlier. When they got delivered, they sounded great. That's what on the record. I didn't use anything but the plexi Marshalls and a Soldano, which are the obvious things to use."

No mention of a Fisch here. But that's not to say it didn't happen

I ran into George at the old Makin' Music in North Hollywood back in June 1992, along with his guitar tech at the time (I can't remember his name: He was of Mexican/Native American descent). They both told me he used the Fish, although he really wanted to use an Ecstasy, but Reinhold didn't have any built in time for the record.

When I saw him on tour, they invited me back stage where he had a pair blue Fish with black knobs in his rack, along with VHT power amps.

I don't know why he's always changing his stories because in the end, he always ends up sounding essentially the same.

So the question is, is he using Soldano's abd Friedmans now or is that also smoke and mirrors? We know the second generation lynch mob heads aren't making a sound.. wonder what else he's got hidden away under some blanket.

Who knows? I saw him at the Key Club in Lynch Mob (with Robert Mason) back in 2003 and he was using Uberschall's the entire night. IMO, regardless of what he uses, his core tone is always the same.

IMO, his best recorded guitar sound was Wicked Sensation but I chalk that up to Max Norman, not the gear used. I didn't care for the dark, over-compressed sound of Lynch Mob and Revolution was pretty awful (and often, out of tune).

Smoke and Mirrors
was much better but not great. The Stone Mountain Sessions guitars are pretty cool, IMO, albeit a little cleaner than normal. The new KXM is classic Lynch tone, but again, a little cleaner than in the past but certainly his best recorded tone, IMO, in more than two decades.

I credit the engineers/producers that captured his tone, not the gear he used, for the differences.

Some guys are just better at recording guitars than others.

I feel like he uses dark amps to match his bright guitars.

Having seen him in clubs numerous times, I've never thought his sound was "dark". It's definitely on the brighter side live these days, though not nearly as much as in Dokken.
