the tone pot

For many years i didnt use none of the control on the guitar. No volume, no tone.

Lately i started learning and experimenting.

Yesterday i was playng with this tone:

the version with the chorus, dont know if the one uploaded has...

As i've wrote before since i can remember i've always used a clean tone that mimic certain characters of a pizo sound. Just think that popping defined attack, very clean and acustic.

With my previous gear i used a Jazz Chorus modeling amp and a compression set to get that attack sound that clean with the high gain humb i use. Later i've starded using some neck humb that allow me some alternative.

But i usually work with the tone of the amp rather than the tone on the guitar.

Actually the latest version of my piezo preset is a Deluxe (the cleanest amp i could find in the Mustang) with the compression placed after the pre. Add some mid scooping and a fair amount of treble and bass.

Yesterday i've (for the first time) experimented with the tone pot and this preset and the result was pretty surprising. The deluxe model handle really well the changes. Really change the character of what you are playing moving from my bright piezo tone to darker acustic sounds to something that reming arpeggios in metallica and finally ending in to a dark jazzy tone. All with the same guitar and the same preset.

So, my suggestion is: experiment with your tone pot and your 'stang, and, why not, give a try to my piezo tone!
