Neck pickup

Guitar tone selector on 'H' (switch 4). Fingerstyle

Guitar tone selector on 'L' (switch 3). Played with a pick

Without the amps 'deep' mode, you can still get nice clear, and powerful bass sound; amp setting: Volume 7, Treble 7, Bass 7. Guitar tone selector on 'H' (switch 4). Played fingerstyle.

Bridge pickup

Tone selector on 'H' (switch 4). With a pick.

Boosting the treble, and without 'deep' mode, gives a bright almost clanky vibe: Volume 5, Treble 10, Bass 5. The guitar tone selector is on 'H' (switch 4). About as bright as you can get with this set up (some roundwound strings are about the only other thing to try).

Both pickups
