        Well, I didn't ask "How could I replicate his tone", I asked "What does he uses". It's just a matter of curiosity, because I like it, and wonder how he achieves it.

        M'kay?

        I do agree that Jonny is Jonny, and no one plays like him!

              I think there were photos floating around the net showing him using a cheap Squire practice amp in the studio. I've also seen a photo of him using a Champion 600 ( original, not the reissue).

                  I reckon that tone is all in the recording, wouldn't be too easy to replicate.

                      That's solid state, we're looking for a cheap TUBE amp, I guess.

                      Oh, look:

                        in studio pics on dead air space, they had a few small 10-15watt amps,

                        I think Jonny had a small squier amp, probabaly cranked

                          Neck pickup, too.

                          Listening to that song I thought "Wow this tone is terrible" but it works for the song anyway.

                              Looks like a Champion 600 to me.

                              As for the song, I've been able to cop it decently well with the neck pickup of my strat into a Box of Rock with the gain all the way up. It does a decent job of copping that dirty, woofy tone from the intro.
                              Rig:
                              Strat->RMC3(FWR)->Fuzz Factory->Mini Deja-Vibe->Tone Press->Crunch Box->Box of Rock->Analogman DD-6->DMM->HRD
