**How did you recreate your compressed studio tone onstage back in the days when stompboxes were in their infancy?** I never did. Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane, who also played a Rickenbacker 12, turned me on to the** Vox Treble Booster** in 1966. I took the Rick apart and installed it in the guitar. It really was an outboard box that gave me some gain, but no compression. Later, we got a rack compressor that we used on gigs, but in the early days, I couldn’t get compression onstage until we got that rack. I tried all the compressors available, including the Dyna-Comp and the Boss, but didn’t like any of them. Not until Rickenbacker designed my signature guitar with the built-in compressor, did I find one that worked for me.more
