This is a Japanese Fender Jaguar recorded on the both pickups setting direct in and also through a valve driven Fender reverb unit. This can be used with software amplifiers such as the free fender and marshall vst plugins on this forum (there are lots of software guitar amplifier and pedal related things worth downloading on the Guitar Amp Modelling forum) or amplifier impulse response files with your convolution reverbs like Jconv on Linux or Freeverb on Windows.
This giga sample also has presets that are through a Fender reverb unit. The reverb unit is designed to go before the amplifier so it is well suited to a direct in recording that is later going to be processed (i.e. put through a software amplifier). You also have a choice of how much reverb you use just by using the mod wheel 2 (cc13) on certain presets. Mod wheel 1 (cc1) is the release. This is so that you can easily set the length of the notes as long as you need.
Other presets include a fake twelve string (octave harmonies on each key), low pass filtered, split voices of muted fifths at one end and solo guitar at the other end of the keyboard (for quickly creating tunes and ideas) and all sorts of different combinations of presets to cover most options. The only two controllers you need for any of the presets are mod wheel 1 (cc1) and mod wheel 2 (cc13). The functions of these controllers are always part of the preset name.
