Developed with Mateus Asato, one of the predominant guitar voices of today, the EL GUAPO Overdrive/ Distortion had a two-year development process. Every detail was painstakingly refined to ensure that both the Distortion and Overdrive channels would work together, to perfectly recreate the soulful overdrive and the liquid high-gain tones that legendary guitarist Mateus Asato is known for!

Designed as a complete ‘Marshall-in-a-box’ pedal, the EL GUAPO features a high-gain Distortion circuit that perfectly recreates the detail and harmonic complexity of the legendary JCM800 amplifier, while the Overdrive channel delivers the smooth overdrive and touch sensitivity of a vintage Plexi. Incorporating the Jackson Audio signature modern-day control features such as Clipping Styles, a 3-band Active EQ for maxing out the pedal’s tonal flexibility, their innovative GAIN CYCLE circuit and full MIDI control over all the EL GUAPO’s plethora of parameters all helps to make the EL GUAPO undoubtedly one of the most versatile platforms for drive tones ever created.
