’62 Reissue Stratocaster

’62 Reissue Stratocaster


I have a 1995 Japanese ’62 Reissue Fender Stratocaster. It’s got a pretty chunky neck and has always sounded great. Most of the time I would record it in the traditional way, but after sampling it I realised that the software instrument makes some parts sound better, cleaner and in some cases… possible, when playing sustained chords or intervals that my hands can’t reach on the guitar itself. It doesn’t replace the need for an actual guitar, but I have found it quite handy. It’s recorded in three velocity layers, sampling every 3 notes. It’s played into a 50th Anniversary Marshall JVM1 1 watt head on the edge of breakup, and a homemade pine 1×12 cabinet with a Celestion Greenback G12M.

Also included is a Logic channel strip that adds a bit of compression, reverb and delay.

I hope you find it as useful as I have.

I’m just getting into Pianobook world and the guitar samples were some of the ones I was most excited about exploring. This one sounds a little flat initially, but all I had to do was throw some verb and delay on and it came to life!
