Does Your Amp Really Matter More Than Your Guitar?

John Nathan Cordy delves into the age-old debate about what truly shapes an electric guitar’s tone. Is it the wood? Pickups? Strings? Or maybe it’s all in the amp?

While most would agree it’s a combination of factors, the question remains: how much does each element contribute?

This experiment throws a curveball. Cordy grabs the cheapest Squier Stratocaster he could find on Amazon and plugs it into a Line 6 HX Stomp, a powerful digital amp simulator.

Sure, the Squier might not be a top-of-the-line instrument, but Cordy admits it feels decent overall. The real star of the show, however, is the HX Stomp. Check out the video to hear how the Squier sounds when processed through the Line 6’s modeled amplifiers.

The results might challenge your assumptions about the role of guitars versus amps in achieving a great tone.

So, is it time to rethink your next gear purchase? Watch the video and see for yourself!
