Hi @Kaz. I started it off with the compressor first. During my experiments of capturing the tone I switched the order and believe it or not it sounds different and more creamy in the soft-gain channel and the compressor makes the screamer much more punchy. The most beautiful things come from the unexpected right ?

Regarding effects I do use the Carl Martin and TS808HW and in the neck position I get almost the exact same tone (like in "electric gypsy" track). its punchy, fat and feels sooo damn right:). About the bridge I agree this depends on equipment+setup and you can never know how he tweaks (circuit-wise) his pedal effects like he did with the BB Preamp which he oftenly uses. Thank for the detailed answer !

Yeah, just wanted to make sure. It does fit in but I need to put a bit pressure to close it. Preferred otherwise but if the wrapping is essential than so be it. Thanks !

Hey @DirkMcQuickly I noticed it does not give me to rollback the downvote unless you edit the question.

When you play lets say a power chord if the pickup is warm and crunchy the pickup is warm and crunchy, and the chord will sound warm and crunchy (unless you use some really nasty pedals on the way which in my case its quite what Andy used in one of his recordings). So an amateur player will be play the chord less accurately but still you will feel that tone coming out from the guitar.

BTW are you familiar with Andy Timmon's music ? his gear etc ? I was not just asking out of the blue this question. anyway just got another answer more the point : "Funny you bring this up. I spoke with Andy last thursday about his gear and essentially, his AT1 is like a JB but with softer highs (his own words) and he plays his amps LOUD. really, really LOUD. That's how he gets that punchy, crunchy sound. and... a lot of talent."

I do not agree with your answer completely. I agree there are many components influencing the final signal coming out from the amp but still pickups play a big role in this process and the body of the guitar.
