Give it a bit more cut in the mix so you stand out when you do your thang, then roll down the volume and go back into rhythm?

Depends on the guitar and how its tone pots are wired, but in general, yeah. My Les Pauls don't have this problem.

But really, turn the guitar's volume down, make the amp sound good there, with the proper levels, etc, and then you have a boost ready to go.

Different strokes for different folks.


I don't know why but I've played strats that wouldn't sound good if I roll the volume down with the guitar volume control but it sounded OK if I used a volume pedal to do the same thing. I figured a pot is a pot. I don't know why the big difference.

But if you're on full volume on the neck pickup and switch to the bridge pickup (which has the same output), then where do you go? :shock:

I use all three positions for rhythm and lead work. I use the volume knob for a boost. :D

JL Hooker


I had that set (490R/498T). Too modern-rock sounding for me, especially the bridge. I had a set of pickups wound to replace them and couldn't be happier. HighOrder Pickups. A5/7.8kΩ in the neck, A2/8.2kΩ in the bridge, asymmetric winds between the coils on both.

I like low output pickups and turning the amp up.
