It's been a while, I hope you're all well.
I decided to treat myself to a Gretsch as I've always loved their guitars. I went for their more affordable Electromatic range and I'm really impressed with it. I actually got it as a little nod to Chris Cornell, he was rocking mostly Gretsch Duo Jets when I got into Soundgarden on the Superunknown cycle.
This is a little test to see how this guitar handles some hi gain tones which ended up being a full length song. Everything on the guitar is stock and I don't think I'll have to change anything out. The pickups exceeded my expectations.
I really love this guitar. Looking forward to doing more of this sort of stuff with it and venturing more into some alternative/indie tunes too.
All tracks recorded with my AxeFXII XL+ using the Fryette D60M and Friedman BE amps for the distorted tones. The cleans are done with the Class-A 30W TB.
IRs for the distorted tones are a blend I made in Cab Lab combining Misha Mix 2 from the ML USA Djent pack and Zilla All Mix from the ML Bulb Zilla pack.
Cleans are recorded with the Zilla All Mix IR.
