Ok the problems arise in a form that i love the sound of vintage clean rhythm strumming. However, i love the sound of aka John Mayer's glassy tone for lead. How do i solve this problem in terms of pickup, amp setting, effects
for john mayer's lead sound, use VERY light distortion, turn your your mid up to about 8 and treble and bass about 6. he also uses a lot of reverb. and if you're using a strat, use the middle pickup or the middle/neck position.
