Guthrie Govan: Studio details

A range of photos from the forum see the post for more Thanks to Ed Yoon and Rob Olewinski.

Here's the list of Guthrie's gear for this session:


Suhr Guthrie Govan Signature Antique Modern (Basswood body with Maple top, Roasted Maple neck)
Suhr Guthrie Govan Signature Modern (Mahogany body with Maple top, Mahogany neck with Pau Ferro board)
Rasmus Guthrie Govan Signature Model prototype (Mahogany body, Mahogany neck with Rosewood board)

All guitars are equipped with the Suhr SSH+ humbucker in the bridge, the ML single-coil in the middle, and the SSV humbucker in the neck.


Suhr Badger 30 watt head
Custom Audio Amplifiers PT100 head (designed, manufactured, and distributed by Suhr)
Suhr 2x12 cabinet with Celestion Heritage G12-65 speakers
Custom Audio Amplifiers 4x12 cabinet with WSG Veteran 30 speakers


In order in the signal chain:

Peterson Strobo-Stomp Tuner
Sweet Sound MojoVibe
Xotic Robotalk Envelope Filter
Analog Man Clone Chorus
Dunlop Jerry Cantrell Signature Cry-Baby Wah
Ernie Ball Volume Pedal
Radial Swithbone (A/B box to run both amps at one or switch between them)
Suhr Koko Boost (clean and midrange boost pedal) - for the Badger 30 head only
Eventide Time Factor Digital Delay (in the effects loop of the CAA PT100)

Analog Man Sun Face Fuzz (on standby for use on certain tracks)

Guthrie's trying out the Switchbone that's in the studio to run both amps at the same time to see if he can get a big sound mixing the two amps and cabs. Sounded really good on its own through the studio monitors but they'll still need to tweak a bit and hear things in the mix to get a real good idea.

The tunes are pretty killer - intense with a lot of twists and turns but still melodic and quite listenable. It'll be very interesting to see what kind of brew comes out in the end...

No ETA yet. It will now be mixed and probably mastered as well by TJ Helmerich at GIT in Hollywood. I'll definitely keep you guys posted.
