Default Coated G2 / Clear Ambass?

Im going to be getting a Gretsch Catalina Maple around Christmas time and was wondering if anyone has tried this little set up? I want the coated to "deaden" the sound just a bit but give a warm deep tone. any opinions...

Coated G2s over clear Ambassadors or clear G1s is a popular combo that is good for several styles of music. Personally I like clear G2s/G1s. If I use a coated head I'll go for G1/G1. Coated 2 ply heads don't do it for me.

A "coated 2 ply" over a "clear single ply" is a very classic combo.
