Might be in the wrong section but when you plug in your guitar into your amp, what sound makes you smile? It is clean, not too much top and a little breakup. Early Eagles or Luther Perkins. On bass it is a traditional 50s, 60s or 70s thump. Most easily got from a Fender Precision. Which is why I have one.
