Hey, was just browsing instruments on Craigslist and came across a 355 like Frankie plays, in case anyone is interested:

Its vintage; but the price is more like a re-issue price.


Looks like a nice find. Unfortunately, saying that $3500 is out of my price range would be a huge understatement. 8)

Yeah, same here. I'd be lucky to get one of the Phantoms built in Oregon (and I hope to one day). But it would be nice if someone on this forum got at least one of those guitars; they deserve to fall into the right hands.

Sorry if I've skipped over anything about their drums and percussion, but what just wondering if anyone knew what drum kits and cymbals they generally use?

I need to get our drummer amongst it ASAP.

Bought myself a cheap Martinez 12-string to try find a familiar sound, no dice.

I don't know about the drums and percussion, but the guitar sound popped up on a shoegaze forum not too long ago.

I really love the guitar sound on Satanic Majesties.

Does anyone know what guitar was used for lead on Anemone, Cold to the Touch and Miss June 75? I am wondering if it was a Kay. The tone is really unique and hard to describe. I think it is bell- like and has nice harmonics.

Secondly, I really love how the notes on those songs play clean, but when there is a harmonic the harmonic causes the amp to break up. You can notice it in the solo on Anemone, but only on that version. Would love to know how they accomplished that if anyone knows. It may have been just a unique combination of guitar, old pickups and the amp. Perhaps it will never be duplicated.

baldwin 12-strings are very cheap (i got a vintage one for $650) and you can get a nice sound out of one fairly easily.

Theres a company called Agile that makes electric 12's too that really are not too shabby. The pickups are cheap but you can always replace them.

The Starstream is absolutely bonkers....out of control. Unbelieveable tone and sustain. Best guitar I've ever owned.

bringing this back from the grave. Just curious, does anybody know if bjm is using vintage gibson 335's maybe pre 1980, or are they newer? Not sure how much of a difference it makes on the tone. Gotta come here for opinions. People on Gibson forums just don't get it.

The sound of the Vox Ultrasonic in combination with a Fender Blackface Twin Reverb influenced me the most.
Luckily i got a near mint Ultrasonic 3 years ago and a blackface reissue amp.
I removed the V1 tube and left the V2 working alone. V2 gets hotter then and makes a better sound. no problem for the amp says my technician.
With some cool pedals (BOSS RE 20, ZVEX Distortron, MXR Booster Pedal, BOSS Combo Drive) this is the most classic BJM sound you can get, especially for songs like Anemone, Servo, etc.
My amp settings are (Bright switch ON, Bass 7-8, Middle 2-3, Treble 7-8, these are very close to Antons, i compared in Prague 2014)
As for the strings i use EHS Boomers 10-52.
Don´t forget to hit the strings as close as possible near the bridge.

Enjoy!
