Billy Sheehan's tone?

  1. Hey everone,

    Ok, this is a question that probably is gunna' be very hard to answer.

    I am a big Billy Sheehan fan, and love his tone. And for this specific question, I'm thinking more about his clean tone.

    I know it's Billy Sheehan, he's got endorsments, a bigger rack than most guitarists, and his basses are obviously a key element to his tone.

    I also know he's a HUGE fan on Compressors, so my question is : How many Compressors do you think Billy uses? And how might I get a tone *something* like his?

    Any thoughts, or comments are appreciated greatly.
