6 or 7 generally but I can switch it up depending on what I'm trying to do...I like 6 1/2ish for the more bluesy/blues rock stuff which is what I do.

I don't have a Les Paul, but if the volume knob on that is anything like the volume knob on my guitar, it actually turns the volume down so you can't hear it as much.

EDIT: I use mine from 10 to 0 depending on alot of ****.

Yeah, but that's not practical in a live context. By rolling the volume back on your guitar, you will clean up the signal.

i usually keep it on ten but i never knew turning the volume up or down effected tone also
#9
At 10 %90 of the time, but I occasionally turn the volume to 1 and tone to 0 for certain solos, I just turn my amp up.

I don't really use the volume that much, as I don't notice a difference between 3 and 10 on my guitar. I adjust my tone a lot, though.

Using the volume and tone knobs are not for turning the overall volume down. Its used to cut your signal output of your guitar. I have 500Ts in one of my LPs which are hot as hell. I can dial in a Kerry King metal tone at full guitar volume... then get a nice warm John Mayall/Clapton blues tone without doing anything to my amps or pedals. Just by using the pots.

I always keep mine on 10, and use a separate volume boost/cut pedal if I really need to boost (or cut, obviously) the volume.

Normally I find on many guitars, if you turn the volume down, you lose tone; often the treble disappears, sometimes the bass too. Of all my guitars, ranging from the cheapest Squier strats to Gibson models costing a couple of thousand, only one of my guitars (Jersey Star) doesn't lose tone when the volume pot is turned down. Using a pedal though, and all my guitars then keep their tone no matter what volume I'm playing at.

These have the added bonus that I find it easier to use a volume pedal halfway during a bar than using the volume control on the guitar.
