Hi there, I'm quite the tone noob, but I like to get some nice sound out of my guitar.
I see a lot of time on here that you can get a nice sound out of your guitar if you know how to EQ, the problem is that I don't know how to EQ properly. I have an effect pedal with an equalizer in it, and I never know how to tweak it to get the right tone.

So, could some of you could tell me how to EQ..

Thanks

Start with everything at 12o'clock and adjust to taste but remember something may sound good at low volumes but might not as you increase the volume or vice versa.

i usually set my amp eq to Bass 1 o clock, mid 11 oclolck, treble, 1 or 2 oclock. for cleans anyway. my distortion is similar but i adjust the mids depending on what im playing

Thats the best advise. Start in the middle. Just tweak tweak tweak to your liking.

Keep in mind live sound might not come out as well on a recording.

Assuming you understand the basics...

80-120hz - cabinet thump (E6 on a guitar is around 82hz.)
100hz - 250hz - Boxiness (try cutting a bit here)
Around 240hz onwards - Body and fullness
2.5-6khz - Clarity and brightness
8khz + - Air/fizz and prescence
