I don't know why but I've always been like this, I hate treble. For the longest time I've been trying to get a cleanly muffled sound if that makes sense. Sorta similar to throwing an old jacket over your amp. I've since gotten it but still need to tweak it to perfection. I guess it's from hearing people around here who don't know how to EQ playing crap and having a shrill sound. Is anyone else like this?

You jazz lover, you! Seriously, a lot of jazz guitarists use the neck pickup and roll the tone right off.

Well apart from turning the treble down on your amp, a low mids setting make a guitar sound tighter, if you're getting that sort of tone as well that you don't want. You can make a guitar sound muddier by turning the mids up a little.

^On your guitar itself, there's what Vulcan said!

Other than that, you could throw an old jacket over the amp

A good way to explain the sound is an old acoustic with worn in strings. As far as the neck pickup goes I use it only for clean with the tone around halfway down and the bridge mainly or the bridge/middle rarely middle never neck on distortion.

It's not as bad as you'd think. I don't like it too muffled I just don't like a really high trebly biting sound.

i hate treble too....what i do is turn the bass and treble all the way, middle around 5...then on my guitar i use both pick ups, turn treble to 0 and bass to 10...love the tone i get with that set up, bassy but still with an edge

I can try and record a sample but the sound quality won't be exact.

once youre playing with a band a significant amount of your highs will be drowned out by the drummer anyway. if youre playing alone just scoop them.

Yeah I usually adjust accordingly during practise but we don't play that much anyway.

I know what you mean, I hate it when people turn up the treble too high and it kills my ears, i like more smooth sounding i guess.


Pretty much, like when beginners try shredding with treble cranked and crappy amps/guitars it just kills me.

Worst is a band thats going through a PA and the guitarist is already pretty trebly. Then the sound guy comes along half pissed and turns up the treble even more.

i just wanna turn round hit him, and scream ARE YOU TRYING TO PEEL THE WALLPAPER OF THE WALLS!?!?!111?!?11111
