Neck pickup

Guitar: volume 10, tone 10. Amp: everything at 12 o'clock: hi input, no deep boost, volume 5, bass 5 midrange freq 400hz, midrange boost/cut 0, treble 5, no compression, master volume 5. Played fingerstyle.

Bridge pickup

Guitar: volume 10, tone 10. Amp: everything at 12 o'clock: hi input, no deep boost, volume 5, bass 5 midrange freq 400hz, midrange boost/cut 0, treble 5, no compression, master volume 5. Played fingerstyle.

Guitar: volume 10, tone 0. Amp: everything at 12 o'clock: hi input, no deep boost, volume 5, bass 5 midrange freq 400hz, midrange boost/cut 0, treble 5, no compression, master volume 5. Played fingerstyle. Turning the tone down to zero on the bridge pickup produces one of my favourite tones: fat, heavy but with just enough mid to cut through

Both pickups

Guitar: volumes 10, tones 10. Amp: everything at 12 o'clock: hi input, no deep boost, volume 5, bass 5 midrange freq 400hz, midrange boost/cut 0, treble 5, no compression, master volume 5. Played fingerstyle.

Guitar: volumes 10, tones 10. Amp: boosted mids (800hz) : hi input, no deep boost, volume 5, bass 5 midrange freq 800hz, midrange boost +5, treble 5, no compression, master volume 5. Played fingerstyle.

Guitar: volumes 10, tones 10. Amp: boosted low mids (200hz) : hi input, no deep boost, volume 5, bass 5 midrange freq 200hz, midrange boost +5, treble 5, no compression, master volume 5. Played fingerstyle.

Guitar: volumes 10, tones 10. Amp: slightly cut low mids (300hz) : hi input, no deep boost, volume 5, bass 5 midrange freq 300hz, midrange cut -2, treble 5, no compression, master volume 5. Played fingerstyle. This gives a great spanky tone, ideal for slapping and popping.

Exactly the same guitar and amplifier settings as above, but with some compression from the amplifier (-6)
