ok hi guys i have a question. I know that if you plug in an electric guitar in a amp and set it on clean, it gives you a sweet, clear sound. Some songs have a "acoustic" intro where you know they are doing it on an electric guitar, but they do something so it sounds acoustic in the sense that it sounds crisp, thin, and it doesn't have that much of sustain? How do they do that?

The upper tone control only affects the neck pickup...

I find inbetween positions work best for acousticy sounds, especially on HSH guitars.

Yah, set it on the middle pickup, that seems to work, or just mess with the pickups, then if thats not enough, mess with the tone knob, if all else fails, another way guitarists get that sound is to instead of strumming over the pickups (where you're supposed to strum), strum over the upper frets (15-24) on the fretboard.
