Hi,

Just been visiting the myspace of Brian Setzter and listening to "Take a Break Guys", great song !
Anyone know which of his guitar he is playing on that track ?
And what kind of tremolo and wahwah does he use, Vox ?

Last fall, Brian did a brief interview in Guitar Player Magazine about the Wolfgang's Big Night Out album. In it he mentions the following (summary of article excerpt, not actual Setzer quotes):

He used his Setzer Signature Gretsch models (Hotrods and Nashvilles (6120's)) for electric work as well as his D'Angelico's for acoustic rhythm playing. So on that song he probably used one of the Gretsches.

As for the tremolo, he mentions that he played that song through a 1964 Fender Twin Reverb Amplifier, to get that surf tone, so he's probably using the amp's tremolo rather than an effects pedal.

As for the wah, he only said it was a 70's-type of fuzz/wah, as he also didn't remember the type of distortion pedal used. My guess, and this is just a guess, would be either a Dunlop Crybaby Wah or a Vox Wah, with either the Pro-Co Rat distortion pedal that he used on the Nitro Burnin' Funny Daddy album or one of the Fuzz boxes similar to what Keith Richards/Jimi Hendrix used (I don't know the name/model right now).


Anyway, I know that's incomplete, but hopefully that gives you some of the information that ye be looking for.

Which Rat pedal do you think it was?

If I had to guess, I'd say one of the following:

1. The Rat (1979-1981)
2. The Rat Ver. 2 (1981-1983)
3. Vintage Rat (1991-2005) {this one probably the least likely}

I think Nikko originally described a Rat pedal used on the Nitro Burnin' Funny Daddy Album, on his transcription site, but I forget which one he said it was. Regardless, that album went out in 2003, so Setzer probably is using the same pedal
on the WBNO album.

Sorry I forgot about this post during the holidays while writing/editing some of my other ones.

Thanks Capt. Jones !
I wonder if he has tried one of those Real McCoys wahwah.
