Check for the 'crap' setting. It should be perfect.


just because you dont like a certain kind of music doesnt mean you have to put in your opinion if your just going to say something like that. i know i dont like certain kinds of music that some of you or my friends listen to but i dont come in and say the music is crap just because i dont like it. now can someone actually help me out here.

Tell me if it is the sound you were looking for. I use a few different variations. Your volume can go up if it's not loud enough or something. Mines at 2 because my amp is like a beast with sound ha

The 5 way switch changes the pickup that you're using. Bridge pickups are normally higher output than neck pickups, as well as sounding a bit brighter. Neck pickups sound softer, not as harsh and are generally lower output. Seeing as it is a 5-way switch, you will most likely have a third pickup, the middle position. This sounds a bit more "nasal" and is used a lot in rhythm playing. The last two positions are bridge/middle and neck/middle, if you have 3 pickups. If these are single coils, these positions serve two purposes - two cancel hum at high gain, and two blend tones. If you have HSH or HSS note that blending a humbucker and a single coil actually makes hum worse. If you only have 2 pickups, these "inbetween positions" will be coil splits or series/parallel. A coil split is when you bypass one single coil in a humbucker (a humbucker is two single coil pickups in series) and a series/parallel switch does exactly what the name suggests, series being a normal humbucker, parallel doing the same thing as the neck/middle and bridge/middle positions on a three single coil guitar.
