Neck pick up. Bass at max, treble at 7, mid at 5. Add some reverb. Maybe? Not to sure about the mesa.

Neck pickup, a lot of mids, treble about halfway or lower, and bass mid way, and a lot of gain.

You won't if you don't have a mahogany guitar.

Besides that, ease up on the gain... A lot.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.
