    its mainly eric johnson who made the guitar sound that way.u play the same guitar and it will still sound like u.
    eric is a tone freak..he can make out the diff in tone even when diff batteries are put in the pedal....

    clapton's woman tone:

    get that gibson lp out.
    select the lead pickup but turn all the bass off
    you could use both pickups but you have to turn bass off
    (turn tone down to 0 or 1)
    then turn volume full up

    btw your gonna need a little overdrive, a bit more distortion and some reverb.

    well according to the Cream - Farewell Tour video i have (shot back in 1968!!) he took the wah wah pedal off. if he's changed it since then, which he most likely, he probably has begun to use the wah wah pedal.

    It could be that he uses it considering that the wah wah pedal takes the bass out of the sound anyway and gives pure treble but i'd imagine that the guitar tone would be set in such a way that all his bass dissapears.
