Ok, bought a new Maton acoustic electric em325c...with an Maton AP-5 pickup, which has two mid-controls, plus the standard treble, bass, volume.

Except, I've got no clue what the mid-controls do. Can anyone help me?

theyre the mid frequencies and bass is the lower and treble is the higher. dont know how your guitar sounds so just play with it until you get a sound you like.

okay for acoustic guitar i'm not too sure.

anyway the mid frequencies are the most audible frequency to a humans ears. so boosting the mids will help u to 'cut' through the band, if u're playing in one. but some players, for example metal players dont like boosting mids cos they tend to give a very nasal tone, so they scoop their mids, which, causes their guitars to be lost in the mix.

so, thats all i can tell u.. hope it helps

Less mids - warmer sound, and vice versa...more mids help you cut through the band as well when ur doing leads...

Less mids for a WARMER sound? You sure? My amp comes out sharp and cold the more I cut away...

So I boost instead.
