When you plug in a different guitar in your amp, do you change the settings of your amp?
Or do you find your amp plays just right for each guitar you own?

My case:

VOX AC30 - have to tweak it according to the guitar I play. Very sensitive amp.
FENDER PRINCETON CHORUS - haven't touched a knob in fifteen years. Always right for any guitar I play

well my settings look like bass-4 o'clock mid-5 o'clock treble- 3 o'clock so on my dot studio i need to turn the bass back a litlle bit but that is it
Oh Hey look at my signature

I really dont do that. Anyway, both of the guitars i really use are made of alder, bolt on, with duncan JB-59 and with elixir strings, so i dont hope much of a difference,

Nah, I'm not THAT much of a tweaker, If I change my settings, they stay like that till next time I change them. The only exception to this is I sometimes take a little bass out when using a 7 string.

Nope, never. My settings are always:
Treble= 2 o'clock
Mids= 5 o'clock
Bass= 11 o'clock

If you have nice guitars - there is no need.

The amp should sound the characteristics of each guitar - mainly why i choose the Orange over the Engl - the Engl makes every guitar sound the same.

Now i could spot a mile away which one was plugged in from one chord.

Wow, no one really changes their tone. Players very happy with their sound. Cool to see.

Some guitars really do require a change. Hollow body to solid. Electric to acoustic. That 7-string guitar I would imagine also needs a tweak from the amp.

This is a good point on paper, but in reality it doesn't really work. There is no way the settings for a twelve string Ric will be OK for a big old Gretsch. A 12 Ric you want to be as bright as hell and severely cut the bass, while a Gretsch the boom is what you desire.

To a certain extent - you have just chosen particular ones that are a pain in the ass generally.
Tweak is needed.

Really it should be like a canvas in which to apply different colours - of course - it is always proven otherwise - though i have got quite close.

I agree the Princeton chorus hardly ever needs changing but I always change the settings with my guitars

I hear you, man. Same with my VOX. If I just look at the knobs of that amp, the tone changes. I am going to learn from you and try my best to just leave the amp basically the same for all guitars.
#16
Yes, i do have to change setting on my amps when switching guitars, mainly because I play a LTD KH602 with EMGs, or a Agile Les Paul with Seymour Duncan's Alnico II, so big tone difference there.
#17
My amp stays the same.

Bass- 9-10
Mids - 10
Treble - 4-7
