One Question Interviews: Bullet Treatment

Chuck (Bullet Treatment – guitar)

SPB: What kind of guitar do you use, and how/why did you choose this one?  

Chuck: My main guitar is a Gibson Epiphone Les Paul Model, it wasn't necessarily the guitar I set out to use but I like to try and buy cheaper guitars and then modify them to get a specific sound. I don't want to get something real nice and then start digging in them, haha.

For this guitar, I originally bought it because it was lighter in weight and I preferred that over a legit Les Paul. What I ended up doing was I had a friend of mine who is a custom pick up maker duplicate the specs for a p90 and replace the pickups in the guitar. I like the noise and activity from those classic p90's and I then had him use a black wrap as to match the guitar (it's black with ivory trim). What ended up happening was that combination made for a killer sound. So much so, I started having other guitar players asking me how I got that Epiphone to sound like that. For some reason those handmade pickups in that body through my Marshall JCM 900 just nailed that punk rock tone I was looking for and it was done on the cheap!
