With Emily Wolfe and Epiphone teaming up again for a new-look take on her Sheraton signature guitar – the White Wolfe – we take the opportunity to check in with one of guitar’s great mavens of tone.

Wolfe is a connoisseur, with a sound that takes the scenic route through rock ’n’ roll history and remixes and refreshes it anew for the 21st-century, leaning into the bountiful choice that guitar players have when choosing stompboxes, and using a well-stocked ‘board to shape her electric guitar tone – including a gain stage that features the full trifecta of fuzz, boost and overdrive pedals.
