Hey so I know this is off my topic post but I have to get it out of the way, I just got done playing a Xiang in my World Music class early today, and I have a big respect for Japanese Style Music.

Anyways, Ive been trying to get just the right sound for my Jazz Fusion style. Now i'm trying to emulate Greg Howe and Steve Kimmock, I have A Vai Jemini Distortion Pedal, Boss Overdrive, The Satrinator, H20 Pedal (chorus, reverb, delay) and an eq/volume pedal. My guitar is a Schecter c-1 classic, running through a Peavy Combo Amp. Now I get close, and I think I got the right tone on my guitar. Now I kinda don't have enough warmth that Greg Howe has on his beautiful guitar. Is it the guitar, or the pickups? I know Schecter isn't great for jazz and blues, but it works, so could it be the pickups?

Sorry if it is kinda confusing, as it is hard to explain, if you wan't a listen at what my guitar setup sounds like go to: http://www.showcaseyourmusic.com/justnothingness

I have no answer for your question, but you have the same guitar as me! They are freaking sweet, no?

Yes they are very versatile! They can play blues, metal, jazz. I love them. So you have a C-1? Or is it a Omen-6 or hellraiser?

Some guitarists go through their life never finding their personal version of "the perfect tone" and it's difficult to determine what it is that makes it.

If you're looking for a warm kind of tone then it's got nothing to do with the guitar or the setup. It's you my friend. Hold the pick lighter, even though it could possibly feel like it's about to fall out, it won't if you're doing it right. You'll get that warm tone you're looking for. Although occasionally the pick has something to do with it too, but I still manage to get the warm tone. I use Jazz II picks if you're interested in trying that out, I definitely reccommend it!

I've had a few Jazz guitarists ask me how I create my tone and say similar things about it being a great warm tone. So hopefully this has helped.

Boosting the mids and slightly lowering the treble frequencies could help.
