Fender Jazzmasters give NOFX "classic sound"

Most of the songs on NOFX's latest album Coaster were recorded using a Fender Jazzmaster, Fat Mike has revealed.

br /> The lead vocalist and bass player told the San Francisco Decider that 75 per cent of the guitar sounds heard on the LP are simply a Jazzmaster being played through a Silvertone amp.

Fans of NOFX may not be surprised at the use of a Fender instrument, with lead guitarist El Hefe closely associated with the Fender Telecaster.

However, Fat Mike claimed it has been a while since the band has used such "old-school" methods.

"We haven't recorded like this in a long time - it's a real classic sound," he remarked. "It has the LA punk sound. We nailed the Germs guitar tone."

He suggested that some of the inspiration for going down this route came from renowned punk producer Bill Stevenson, who has played with Black Flag and The Descendents during his career.

Fat Mike said that Stevenson has a wonderful ability to help bands achieve the sound they are after.
