I'm going for something like the rhythm guitar in this song. I don't know what the band used on the track, but it's been suggested to me to try a Fender (a Princeton or Deluxe Reverb maybe) that is naturally breaking up. Does that sound like the right route to take? If so, any recommended profiles to try out for this type of sound? I have a variety of guitars I could use (with P90s, humbuckers, and single coil pickups).
You are always free to use a OD stomp to get a clean Fender Profile to breakup some. Fender Supersonics have breakup and I think Fender Bassmans. But, I am mainly an M guy -Marshall, Mesa...
Play your Fender profiles on top of the song and see which one you can dial in closer to the original guitar track.
Naming any commercial profiles in this section will get your post moved. So, search the RE using keywords "delux" "deluxe" "lux" and "dlx". You may need to narrow the search further by searching in Name field. Sort by gain. Audition profiles until you find the sound you are looking for, or as close as you can find.
Then, try tweaking using Definition (likely turn down slightly), Tube Sagging (likely turn up to 7 or more), and the Amp eq (likely mid and treble down, then make up the top end by turning the presence up. If necessary, use the Pure Boost in front of the Stack for a full range push. 🤞
And please, report back and share your findings.
Just listened to the track again. For the above, I was thinking of the heavier sound that starts right after the intro
For the more jangly sound, also search the RE for deluxe, and when you find the one, add some direct mix in the amp section, and a short, bright reverb.
