Ever sit in the theatre and dream about that sick sound John gets. Now you can discuss amongst yourselves.

try this settings:

and tweek it till you like it. ;)

for normal and faster solos use a delay with 3-5 times repeating and a tempo around 250ms and 500ms, for slower solos around 350ms + 700 ms (if you can use it in stereo).
some light detune is always cool to make it the rhythm sound bigger.

Hmm I have similar graphic eq to the bottom one im getting a pretty good sound but i think alot of his tone comes from his guitar of course aside from his fingers.
Im playing a paul so i will soon own a jp6 due to it being the only super strat that i like for that price range i dont feel like dishing out for a suhr right now :)

I usually can get pretty close to the SFAM tone with my Mark IV; however, I'm using Dimarzio-equipped basswood guitars. The Gibson pickups have a very different voicing.
