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.
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.”
