I love the electric warm tone from Django last recordings, specially that from 1953 sessions... I just wanted to dedicate one topic to the settings (guitar, amp, pickup and strings available nowadays) we should use to recreate it.
I think one of the best options might be this one, but I haven't tested the combination...
Eastman 16" or 17"
Stimer Modèle S.T. 48 Pickup
Stimer Modèle M12 Amplifier
What do you think about? Which are your settings to get close to that tone?
