So I was noodling on my Epi LP today when I noticed that 95% of the time, I keep my knobs all at ten. Knowing this is a grave misuse of the versatility afforded by two volume knobs and two knobs, I began twisting. I immediately began to find some positions I liked. When I play hard rock licks, I like to stay in the lower registers, using open strings and chording and running around on the lower strings. On the neck pickup, it sounds muddy and weak. On the bridge, it's too bright and spanky. But by settling on the middle position, keeping the bridge volume and tones at 10, then backing off the neck to 8 on volume and 0 on tone, I get this super-thick, clear-as-a-bell crunch rhythm tone for power chords and low-end riffs. So I'm asking what you guys have discovered by playing with your volume and tone controls. I'd like to learn how to get the most out of my LP and SG and tap into the collective knowledge of this forum for that.
