Natalie Denise Sperl Opens Up About Her Favorite Axe

Kill My Coquette

MY FAVORITE AXE
with Natalie Denise Sperl (Kill My Coquette)

Natalie Denise Sperl is the front woman of Kill My Coquette, whose self-titled debut EP is out now.  Kill My Coquette is armed with attitude and boasts vital rock and punk with a twist of designer blues.

MAKE & MODEL
2014 Gibson SGJ. Slim profile maple neck, vintage style tuners, ’61 Zebra Humbuckers. Made in the U.S.A.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU
Freedom. Fun. I plug in and I have that tone and sound and power coming from behind me; it makes me want to play my heart out.

WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE
The clean tone purrs. Dirtier tones growl. The Gibson SG gives me that smooth, beefy tone I like for playing rhythm. I use the Big Muff and OCD overdrive pedals through my Vox AC30. I use Ernie Ball custom gauge strings and Dunlop 50mm picks.

SPECIAL FEATURES
None. It’s a stock SG and I love it!


CAN BE HERD ON

The tracks “3rd & Bonnie Brae,”  “Close To Me,” and “Sweet Baby Blooze.”
