    I am trying to replicate the gojira guitar tone from The Way of All Flesh. Can anyone help me in this eq quest. I'm running an EVH 5150 III into a Sennheiser E609.

    When I toured with them they just used stock 5150 IIs

    red channel

    gain at 1 oclock lows 4 oclock mids 4 oclock and highs around 1-3 oclock. I can't remember the resonance and presence settings though

    Try using a different guitar, i wouldn't reccomend a hollowbody for gojira lol. Try jackson/ltd/ibanez also Joe uses a SLS-3 Soloist, with Seymour duncan zebras stock bridge and neck, try looking for high output pickups.

    5150 variant + mesa dual rec

    when I saw them live they were both using 5150 II's though. and yeah a semi-hollow body guitar probably isn't the best thing to nail their tone.

    You definitely need a clean boost in front of the amp and the right pickups.

    A lot of excellent advice guys. thanks... I think I might change some of the ways I was going about finding this guitar tone. Like the pickups. Still messing with amp to find that perfect eq setting on the EVH III

    Emil is a hero and god among men, and he doesnt even over due his tone. His set up is soooo simple which makes his playing powerful.
