Here's Chris Buck doing his usual (excellent) thing. It's a brilliant example of a player using his touch and his volume control to sculpt his sound:


Here's the video he mentions of him playing a '59 Burst, with more superb playing and subtle use of volume controls:

Here is a re-up of that video of Gary Moore and BB King tearing up BB King's old hit, The Thrill is Gone. Gary Moore's playing is outstanding. He hunts out sound after sound almost phrase by phrase. It's a real master class from a pair of masters (both sadly gone now).

Imo 2 tone configuration of classic LPs and Strats was too much. One tone all that's needed. Even then doesnt get that much use. But 2 definitely just gets in the way and makes that area of the guitar too "busy". Again jmho
