1) What type of guitar are you currently playing? (Model, type, specs...)
The Fernandes Ravelle Tremolo. I currently have two and the slight difference is that one is equipped with both the EMG 81 and 85 and the other is equipped with the EMG 81 and the Fernandes Sustainer.
2) How does the Fernandes Ravelle guitar influence and interact with Inquisition's music?
This guitar offers excellent low end thanks to that thick mahogany, heaviness is a must for Inquisition and lows are its foundation. The maple top allows for enough highs to detail our power chords without sounding too bright or thin and they really surface nicely when I let the notes ring out. In my playing I use big power chords and every note counts, if the lows kill the highs for example, then a song is damaged. I need balance and this guitar is very much balanced. The sustain is superb, another vital need in our music and its atmosphere. With little sustain we risk sounding empty.
Above all, I am a slave to tone, paired with the right amp big or small I get what I am looking for every time and combined with the active pickups it’s a brutal guitar for brutal music. Read more..
