Interestingly, when I set out on the Internet to research how George made his unique guitar sound in the 70s, I expected to find reams of information, technical specifications, people who've reverse-engineered it, etc. But, nothing! I know he favored Fender Stratocasters, but nothing could I find about amplifiers, strings, the material of his slides, technique, etc. Does anyone know a resource for such information? As a guitarist myself, I'd love to know more about how George did George! : )

That's about the extent of most information I've found, too, mrmustard. WIL is simple, a fuzz-box effect gets you really close. ATMP is a pretty ordinary sound. But there's a uniqueness associated with his most of his slide playing, and especially non-slide playing typified by Hari's On Tour, Crackerbox Palace, etc. that I would love to know or figure out how he got.
Coincidentally,I've been listening to "Cracker Palace" recently.I do indeed enjoy the "stretchy" guitar bits very much myself.While most of the rest of "33 and a Third" IS a bit pedestrian,I always thought "Palace" to be a well produced effort.As far as Mr. Harrison's guitar aspirations in general are concerned,he definitely was one of the more unique stylists.Even Ol' Slow Hand himself remarked in the Martin Scorcese documentary about the youngest of the Fabs that George was "clearly an innovator"....
