Don't need to bump it as the Mod's made it a sticky here in the Tonefreak Section.
thanks for the info
aware of this
just wanted to go out of my way to show appreciation to Splattle for the info in this thread
is that okay with you?
I don't have a problem.
Thats OK but you're missing out on many varied and wonderful tones
As they say: if brute force isn't working for you, you're not using enough of it!!
Any advice on setting controls on a doublecut with just master vol and master tone?
The same principles apply. Use the volume control to reduce your volume and distortion. Use the tone control to set the bridge to a useable sound, and turn it back up when you change to the neck PU.
Very cool suggestions, can't wait to try them when I get home.....one question, which may seem a little stupid, but are these even remotely applicable to my LesPaul Studio Gem Series (or any LP w/ P90 pickups), or is this behavior specific to humbuckers?
Great thread. I went to catch a local blues player, gifted guitarist, but he has no tone. It just sounds flat, no raunch, no swagger.
I still haven't found "my" sound either. Living in apt and then having kids I rarely break out my amps preferring to just twang away. When I do plug in I'm so disappointed in my sound.
what amp are you using on those rare occasions that you get the chance?
Yes, this information is general. It will work on P-90s. It's is not specific to humbuckers.
In fact, the main Les Paul I use these days is loaded with P-90s.
A '92 Marshall ValveState 10.
Saw some more demos of using the volume and tone controls with Modern Wiring

Still a great thread three years later!
Led Zeppelin I solos on neck of telecaster ive heard
My approach is a bit different. I have everything on the neck PU set to ten and then on the bridge I have Volume at 6.5 and tone at 7. This way with my 2 channel channel amp (don't use any pedals other than a TC electronic in the Effects loop and occasional breaking out the Z vex Fuzz Factory) I get: Cleans- Neck PU clean channel, Crunchy Mid Gain that still has treble and presence- Bridge PU dirty channel and my heavy overdrive with a bit of fuzz tone (For The loudest riffs and big leads)- Neck PU with dirty channel. I love the way it works!
So much good advice in this thread I had to register just to say thanks and keep up the good work
