Yeah, during his stint in Sleep, Pike used a goldtop LP into Green amps/cabs and that was a bout it. That along with Al's Rickenbacker tone created one thick mother of a tone. Same for the Wizard, Jus Oborn uses pretty much nothing but SGs as does Liz running into Matamps/Sunns.
Longer scale and more strings doesn't necessarily = heavier sound
