    hi guys. alot of you will probably laugh at this, i dont blame you, it's a stupid question. i've never played a matchless in person, but when i hear this song it kind of makes me think of a cranked matchless.

    especially the parts around 3:04.

    is it similar to a cranked matchless or do i have it all wrong?

    If memory serves me correctly, I goosed the front a bit with an SD-1...level maxed and gain rolled all the way off. That tightens it up a bit for rock stuff.

    If it truly sounded like a Matchless, Matchless wouldn't truly be matchless now would it? Think about it.

    Sorry. Sometimes I just can't stop myself.

    IIRC that's a Strat thru a Boogie.
