Just reading through this one again.....
The 2 volume and 2 tone knobs that controls the individual pickups can be VERY useful. I still find it hard to go back to 2 or 3 way knobs like on the Strat.

I like to roll down the volume of the pick-up that I'm NOT using (Say I'm playing using the Bridge pick up, and I roll down the volume for the Neck pickup to 0). So, what I esstentially get, is a Kill-Off switch! When I want total silence, I just switch it to the Neck pick-up and voila! No more sound!

hmm but if ur swtich is on the bridge pickup...it wont be reading anything from the neck pickup rite?

------------
Model: JS1000
Brand: Ibanez
Nickname: Satriani's signature
Style: Overdriven leads, solos, blues & rock riffs
--------------

Finally, I'll give my piece of writing on that axe, after owning one since 4 years (and still going).
First, the purpose : Joe Satriani designed that guitar to fit his style, so that he could get the exact sound he wanted for most of his songs. The thing is that he used to play on a strat (a genuine fender one to begin with, and then a "ibanez strat" prototype, loaded with humbuckers) and he got used to that rounded neck.

So basically he wanted a neutral and even sound (like an ibanez RG) with a slight touch of vintage and thickness (like a Les Paul), with a round neck (like a Strat'), with nice cleans (Strat' again ?) and yet an ability to produce tight metal riffs along with a screaming vibrato (I'd say that they're both specificities of the ibanez RG). All in all, that fearless dude wanted to get himself a highly lethal cocktail of the best guitars from the 80's.

What's the result ?

Chances are you won't buy a chrome platede one, but rather something like those:
user posted image

The JS1000 is loaded with a dimarzio Fred (bridge) and a dimarzio PAF Pro (neck) , while the JS1200 has got a dimarzio PAF Joe (neck) instead, and comes only in rather flashy red colour. The PAF Joe provides more highs, compared to the PAF Pro, and that's definitely a good thing. The Pro is slightly too dark sometimes.

The feel is great : in my opinion, the best part would be the neck : it isn't flat and yet it's not that much rounded either so all the legato and tapping and bends are pretty easy to do. But more than the shape, it's more the thickness that is unbelievable. It is so deliciously thin that fingers will run naturally on it, without any kind of exhaustion.
The body itself is super-light (so if you're as strong as a baby shrimp, you'll get along fine with it), mostly because it is very thin. The wood itself is basswood, which is among the lightest wood around.

And to end this review : the sound. As told earlier, it's neither a strat, neither a LP but it was intended to blend both of them. A strato-elpiccinno. As a consequence : it's none of them : a strat would have a much more piercing/biting sound, while a LP is much fatter.
I can't say the JS is in between, because that doesn't make sense (while I myself try to make some, from time to time). It can't imitate the strat perfectly, but it provides really decent cleans and single-coils sound (thx to the coil-splitting mechanism), that can be used for strumming or cool arpeggios. Combining both pick-ups in single coil can provide a lovely "light" crunch that I use for funky aggressive riffs.
On the fat end, it doesn't compare with a LP at all. A LP is just heavier, from all perspectives. Like comparing a modern body-builded wrestler with a sumo. The wrestler might be sexier, but the sumo is the real deal. The JS can definitely gets you on the metal track, but it won't give you the extra bottom Oooomph easily. It's tighter, sharper, it's different. But tuned accordingly, on the right amp (let's say a mesa boogie), it will get dirty.
When it comes to the overdriven leading part, or even the cleaner bluesy solos from the album "Joe Satriani", what you hear on the CDs is what you'll have with that guitar. Nice sustain, plenty of mids, the guitar is just singing like a human voice. I mean... you know what I'm talking about. It still a vintage sound (compared to a JEM sound for instance), but with more definition in it.

Retail price is about 7,ooo RM, perhaps less. Quite expensive, and I'm not sure it worths it, but you purposedly pay for the signature... visually and sonically smile.gif

Fender Stratocaster (credit to led_zep_freak, Wikipedia and Fender)

user posted image


Model: Stratocaster
Brand: Fender
Nickname: Strat
Genre: Blues, Rock & basically everything else too (Strats are very versatile!).

What ?

The Stratocaster is a model of electric guitar designed by Leo Fender in the early 1950s, and manufactured continuously to the present. The Stratocaster has been used by many leading guitarists and on many historic recordings: Along with the Gibson Les Paul and the Strat's older cousin, the Fender Telecaster, it is one of the most enduring and common models of electric guitar in the world.

The headstock shape of the Statocaster is actually copyrighted.
That's why other "Stratocaster" copies cannot replicate its recognizable shape exactly.



The Stratocaster has been widely copied, such that 'Stratocaster' or 'Strat' can also denote a type of guitar, by various manufacturers, showing the same general features as the original (see strat copy). However, in many jurisdictions the word 'Stratocaster' is reserved for Fender guitars.

Where did it come from ?

The Fender Electric Instrument Manufacturing Company (now known as Fender Musical Instruments Corporation) developed the first commercial solid-body 'Spanish' (as opposed to 'Hawaiian,' or lap steel) electric guitar in the Telecaster, a simple design whose earliest models were offered under various names like Broadcaster or simply Esquire, beginning in 1950. Though the Telecaster and its variants were successful, many guitar players of the day insisted on using a Bigsby unit, a fairly primitive spring-loaded vibrato device with which players could bend notes up and down with their pick hand. Instead of adding a Bigsby, Fender decided to produce a new, more expensively-made ash or alder line of guitars with his own design of vibrato (see tremolo arm for more on the evolution of such mechanisms). His decision was also influenced by guitarists Rex Gallion and Bill Carson, who requested a contoured body to temper the harsh edges of the slab-built Telecaster; the new ash body design was based on that of the 1951 Precision Bass.

model played left-handed, with the strings in the standard order relative to the guitarist.



The name, 'Stratocaster,' was intended to evoke images of newly emergent jet-aircraft technology (such as the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress), and to express Fender's modernistic design philosophy. In designing the Stratocaster's body, a significant area of the back of the guitar, and the area where the strumming arm rests, were beveled to accommodate the player's chest and arm. The upper bouts featured two cutaways, for easier access to the higher frets. The new 'Custom Contour Body' and 'Synchronized Tremolo' bridge made the Stratocaster a revolutionary design. The guitar also featured more complex electronics than the Telecaster: three single coil pickups, each with staggered magnetic poles; a three-way selector switch; one volume knob, and two tone controls. (A three single-coil pickup design was an innovation already in use by Gibson in their ES-5 model since 1949. However, Fender's pickups were much more compact.)

How about it's sound and playability ?

Much of the popularity of the Stratocaster can be attributed to its versatility. The neck, middle, and bridge (in the original manual, labelled "rhythm", "normal tone", and "lead", respectively) pickups provide a wide range of tones. The standard singlecoil pickups often found in Stratocasters produce a trebly sound with a high top end and bell-like harmonics. The Stratocaster has been used for a variety of purposes, from the classic "Fender twang" to the slicing solos of Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton to the fat, crunching tones in Ritchie Blackmore's "Smoke on the Water".

Is the Design and popularity still the same ?

In 1959-1967, the Stratocaster was refitted with a rosewood fretboard, as well as color choices other than sunburst, including a variety of colorful car-like paint jobs that appealed to the nascent surfer and hot-rod culture, pioneered by such bands as the Ventures and the Beach Boys. d*** Dale, the godfather of surf-rock, was a prominent Stratocaster player who also collaborated with Leo Fender in developing the Fender Showman amplifier. In the early 60's, the instrument was also championed by Hank Marvin - guitarist of the Shadows, a band which originally backed Cliff Richard and then produced instrumentals of its own. So distinctive was the Hank Marvin sound that many musicians - including the Beatles - initially deliberately avoided the Stratocaster and chose other marques. However, by 1965, George Harrison and John Lennon of the Beatles both acquired Stratocasters at about the time of the Rubber Soul recording sessions. It was Jimi Hendrix who widely popularized its use once again in the late 1960s.

The one-piece maple neck was discontinued in 1959; however, a maple neck with a glued-on maple fretboard was offered as an option in 1967. The rosewood fretboard over maple neck remained as the other neck option. In 1969, one-piece maple necks were again offered.

at the Tsunami Relief concert, January 22nd 2005.



Many artists (including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and Mark Knopfler) discovered that the pickup selector could be lodged in between the basic three settings for further tonal variety; since 1977, Stratocasters have been fitted with a five-way switch to make such switching more stable. Other, often subtle changes were made to the guitars over the years, as though in the spirit of tinkering for which Leo Fender was famous, but the basic shape and features of the Strat remained unchanged. In the 1980's some popular guitarists began modifying their Stratocasters with a humbucker pickup in the bridge position. This was intended to provide a more suitable sound for the heavier music of the day. The popularity of this modification grew and ultimately Fender began releasing factory built models with a bridge humbucker option.

Players first perceived a loss of the initial high quality of Fender guitars after the CBS takeover in 1965. So-called 'pre-CBS' Stratocasters are, accordingly, extremely sought-after and expensive. In recent times, original 1954 to 1958 Stratocasters have sold for more than $75,000. Many now reside in Japan, cached away as collectible pieces of Americana.

Tsunami Relief concert St.Andrews, April 2005



The Stratocaster fell out of fashion in the mid-sixties, to the point where the Fender company (Leo Fender had sold it to CBS for $13 million in January 1965) reduced its price and considered removing it from their production line. However, Jimi Hendrix and many other blues-influenced artists of the late '60s soon adopted the Stratocaster as their main instrument, reviving the guitar's popularity. Both George Harrison and Eric Clapton used Stratocasters in the 1971 Concert For Bangladesh, giving the Strat additional high visibilty in rock circles.

After a peak in the 1970s, driven by players such as David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, and Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, another lull occurred in the early '80s. During that time, CBS-Fender cut costs by deleting features from the standard Stratocaster line, despite a blues revival that featured Strat players such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, and Buddy Guy. (Buddy Guy had actually been a Strat player since the mid-1960s, and is sometimes credited with influencing Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan in their choice of the Stratocaster as a primary blues-rock guitar.) However, this lull abated once the company became independent of CBS, and a rise in mainstream popularity for vintage (and vintage-style) instruments resulted.

Fender Telecaster (credit to led_zep_freak, Wikipedia and Fender)

Model: Telecaster
Brand: Fender
Nickname: Tele
Genre: Country, Blues, Rock.

What ? Another Stratcaster ?

Nope, its a Telecaster. This guitar is a dual-pickup, solid-body electric guitar made by Fender. Its simple, yet effective design and revolutionary sound broke ground and set trends in the fields of electric guitar manufacture and popular music. Introduced for national distribution as the Broadcaster in the fall of 1950, it was the first guitar of its kind to be produced on a substantial scale. Its commercial production can be traced as far back as the spring of 1950, when the single- and dual-pickup Esquire models were first sold. From that time to the present, the Telecaster has been in continuous production in one form or another, making it the world's senior solid-body electric guitar (Duchossoir, 1991, 11-15).


user posted image

Same with its Stratocaster brother, the headstock shape of the Telecaster is copyrighted too.
You'll see other other "Telecaster" copies in various shops, but cannot replicate its recognizable shape exactly.



Where did it come from ?

The Telecaster was developed by Leo Fender in Fullerton, California, in the 1940s. But like many great ideas, the solid-body electric guitar was created independently by several craftsman and companies over a similar period (roughly 1932-1949), such that any claim of a 'first' demands a great deal of qualification. Leo Fender's Telecaster was simply the right guitar at the right time, and like many other great ideas, it began as an accident.[citation needed]

Fender had an electronics repair shop called Fender's Radio Service where he first repaired, then designed, amplifiers and electromagnetic pickups for musicians -- chiefly players of electric semi-acoustic guitars, electric Hawaiian (lap steel) guitars, and mandolins. Players had been 'wiring up' their instruments in search of greater volume and projection since the late 1920s, and electric semi-acoustics (such as the Gibson ES-150) had long been widely available. Tone had never, until then, been the primary reason for a guitarist to go electric, but in 1943, when Fender and his partner, Doc Kauffman, built a crude wooden guitar as a pickup test rig, local country players started asking to borrow it for gigs. It sounded shiny and sustaining. Fender got curious, and in 1949, when it was long-understood that solid construction offered great advantages in electric instruments, but before any commercial solidbody Spanish guitars had caught on (the small Audiovox company apparently offered a modern, solidbody electric guitar as early as the mid-1930s), he built a better prototype.

That hand-built prototype, an anomalous white guitar, had most of the features of what would become the Telecaster. It was designed in the spirit of the solid-body Hawaiian guitars manufactured by Rickenbacker -- small, simple units made of Bakelite and aluminum with the parts bolted together -- but with honest wooden construction. (Rickenbacker, then called 'Rickenbacher,' had also offered a solid Bakelite-bodied electric Spanish guitar in 1935, many details of which seem echoed in Fender's design.)

The initial production model appeared in 1950, and was called the Esquire. (Fewer than fifty guitars were originally produced under that name, and most were replaced under warranty because of early manufacturing problems.) Later in 1950, this single-pickup model was discontinued, and a two-pickup model was renamed the Broadcaster. The Gretsch company, itself a manufacturer of hollowbody electric guitars, claimed that "Broadcaster" violated the trademark for its Broadkaster line of drums, and as a newcomer to the industry, Fender decided to bend and changed the name to Telecaster, after the newly popular medium of television. (The guitars manufactured in the interim bore no name, and are now popularly called 'Nocasters.') The Esquire was reintroduced as a one-pickup Telecaster, at a lower price.

Is the sound and playability the same as the Stratocaster ?

The Telecaster is known for its bright, cutting tone. One of the secrets to the Tele's sound centers on the bridge. The strings pass through the body and are anchored at the back by six ferrules, giving solidity and sustain to the guitar's sound, but some are 'top-loading'; the strings pass through the end of and terminate at the bridge instead of going through the body. The original 3-saddle bridge resulted in good contact between the strings and the solid body, further enhancing sustain. A slanting bridge pickup enhances the guitar's treble tone. The solid body allows the guitar to deliver a clean amplified version of the strings' tone.

He is known for inventing the first modern rock band.



This was an improvement on previous electric guitar designs, whose hollow bodies made them prone to unwanted feedback, and which sometimes suffered from a muddy, indistinct sound. These design elements allowed musicians to emulate steel guitar sounds, making it particularly useful in country music. Such emulation can be enhanced by use of a B-Bender (B-string bending device co-introduced by Clarence White), enabling a smooth change of pitch for a single string within a chord.

What's so big deal about the Telecaster ?

The Telecaster was important in the evolution of country, electric blues, rock and roll and other forms of popular music, because its solid construction allowed the guitar to be played loudly as a lead instrument, with long sustain if desired, and with less of the whistling 'hard' feedback (known in sound reinforcement circles as 'microphonic feedback') that hollowbodied instruments tend to produce at volume (a different kind than the controllable feedback later exploited by Jimi Hendrix and countless other players). Even though the Telecaster is more than half a century old, and more sophisticated designs have been coming out since the early 1950s (including Fender's own Stratocaster), the Telecaster has remained in constant production. There have been numerous variations and modifications, but a model with something close to the original features has always been available.

How to restring a floyd rose.

QUOTE(vorchiel @ Apr 28 2006, 10:43 PM)
http://www.carvinworld.com/manuals/Original-Floyd-Rose.pdf

but after i lossened the saddle lock screw, i still can not remove the string. do i need to pull it vigorously? i afraid of damaging my guitar.. or is it like that? the lock box doesnt seem to budge at all..

QUOTE(TheWhacker @ Apr 29 2006, 12:10 AM)
floyd rose is a very tricky setup to adjust. If you get it wrong, the whole tuning will be out.

I suggest sending to a shop to tune the guitar and see how the pro does the tuning on a floyd rose.

Send it to the shop and let the pro do it for you. I rather pay £20 then paying £200 to repair the whole bridge of guitar. Here's why ....

Once, I came across a "seasoned" guitarist who thinking he knows what hes doing .... he adjust the floyd rose bridge went up so high till the whole thing just come out from the guitar ....

After watching the pro adjust the floyd rose, go ahead and try adjust them yourself ..... if you did something wrong or you want to ask a questions, at lest he's there to help you

QUOTE(strife_personified @ Apr 29 2006, 01:29 AM)
might have some help for you here. had lots of fun with my floyd-rose, and i'm glad that my first teacher thought me how some tips on how to do it.

first up, dont play with the rear tremolo cavity. i've learnt from my own itchified experience not to be a bum and do things without knowing what i was doing in the first place.

what you want to do is get a nice hard piece of card board that is longer than the breadth of the Floyd-rose (thereafter refered to as FR). now, using the tremolo arm, pull it so that the strings start to slack, and lodge the cardboard behind the FR, so that it stays at that height when you let go of the tremolo arm.

now, follow the pdf guide that you posted, remove all the strings, and all that stuff. thats all the same, so i wont repeat it here.

lastly, with the cardboard still in place, tune the strings till they are nearly fully tuned but not fully yet, then test the tension by removing the cardboard, and SLOWLY easing the FR back into its normal position.

now, i dont know if this is orthodox, but i generally tune the strings over and over til the ride height is correct, and its in tune, since what usually happens is that you tune the sixth string, then by the time you get to the first string, the sixth is out.

one method that i sometimes use is to tune the first and sixth together, since they are both E. then tune the other strings, while playing the sixth and first strings at the same time as a point of reference. once its generally in tune, lock the tune lock if you're lucky enough to have that, and fine tune the harmonics out with the FR itself.

hope that helps wink.gif and saves you 15 quid as well.

Lastly, to answer your actual question, you could try spraying a little WD40 into the lock box, just make sure that you don't drown it. try pushing it a bit with a screwdriver, those bums do tend to get stuck.

also, you can sometimes try to time your guitar string changes with your servicing schedule, so that way they can do it all at once. saves a lot of hassle sometimes.

PS: Thanks for the pdf manual. i've definitely learned a bit more from that than my experimenting.

QUOTE(Reload @ Apr 29 2006, 01:44 AM)
Floyd Rose setup is hard, but changing strings isn't really, once you've done it a couple of times.

Have you loosened the saddle lock screws enough? The lock block should be loose inside the lock box. (Not too loose, you don't want it to fall out.) You shouldn't need to pull too hard on the strings to remove them from the saddle.

Those are quite good instructions, actually, so you should trust them.

One more thing...instead of blocking your tremolo with the cardboard as described above, you can just change your strings one at a time. Of course, this means you can't clean the fretboard, but do you want to?

Good luck.
*
QUOTE(strife_personified @ Apr 29 2006, 01:49 AM)
i'd say clean the fretboard. doesnt hurt to polish the frets with some mild metal cleaner, and the wood as well. but do correct me if i'm wrong and it isnt actually good to do that.

but then again, it IS your first restringing, so your guitar is most likely in good shape, so you might still want to consider Reload's advice.
*
QUOTE(Reload @ Apr 29 2006, 02:01 AM)
I always, always clean the fretboard and the frets when I change strings, so I block my trem. But that's just because I'm fussy.  thumbup.gif

By the way, you can block your trem with almost anything. I use a wood block or a couple of bottlecaps. Just make sure that whatever you use won't scratch anything. When in doubt, coat with masking tape.

And use WD40 sparingly, because it's really hard to clean up from all the crevices of  the bridge and makes everything feel icky.

QUOTE(Everdying @ Apr 29 2006, 04:55 AM)
yea i tune mine the same way strife_personified said.
only instead of cardboard i stick a cloth under it, normally some old tshirt.

awhile ago someone actually invented some small plastic device just to specially stick under the floyd, forgot what it was called, but its definitely a waste of money.

and yea, i always clean and condition my fretboard with every string change.

Can i review bout Matthew Bellamy's Manson guitar, since he is my fav guitarist

Silver Mansion

user posted image

-this guitar features a built in Z vex fuzz factory that can oscilate at any pitch and delivers some of the most extreme fuzz tones you will ever hear.
-also built in is an MXR phase 90 to create those swelling dramatic moments that have become part of Matt's signature tone.
-a Roland GK2a is internally fitted and a piezo loaded bridge installed to give him an acoustic tone(sounds great distorted too).



Black Guitar

user posted image

-took the concept one step further with more built in effects than you can shake a stick at this has to be the most versatile guitar in the world.
-the features include a Z Vex fuzz factory , Phase 90 , Fernandes sustainer circuit , Z Vex wah probe , Piezo bridge , and a revolutionary midi ribbon control to operate the Digitech Whammy.
-also fitted with Sim's custom L.E.D 's along the side of the finger board.
-mahogany body with a birdseye maple neck and rosewood fingerboard all finished in matt black.



7 Strings Custom

user posted image

-it features a thru neck with a flame maple top and an ebony fingerboard.
-two humbuckers and a piezo bridge for extra harmonic clarity.
-actually, not built for Matthew, but for other jazz guitarist who changed his mind last minutes and Matthew just grab it for his new song.( i think Citizen Erased)



Cracked Mirror

user posted image

-this guitar features 10 lasers all in all and they project out the front of the guitar bright red, which on a dark stage looks amazing!

-the guitar also has a visually striking cracked mirror finish that reflects the stage lights for a dramatic effect.

-the built in effects include a Z Vex Fuzz Factory, MXR phase 90, Roland GK2a pickup for midi applications and a piezo system.

-mahogany body with birds eye maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.Now refitted with Bare Knuckle pickups



The Bomber

user posted image

-started life as an all chrome guitar but because some of the chrome didn't take as well as normal during tour and Hugh decided to add some flashes of colour to give a kind of oil type finish which actually looks stunning.
-he also found some original B52 rivetts (WW2 material) from junkyard and put them in to complete the bomber as we know it.
-fitted with a floyd rose locking tremolo system for increased tuning stability during whammy bar madness.
-also fitted with a midi strip and kill switch.
-pickups are Seymour Duncan Hot P90 and Rio Grande Crunchbox.
-mahogany body with a brids eye maple neck / rosewood finger board.



The Mirror

user posted image

-this all mirror Manson was specially commisioned for the triumphant end of year shows at Earls court.
-the finish looks out of this world and was pain staking for Hugh to construct. -otherwise this guitar is relatively simple in the electronics with a Fuzz Factory and MXR phase 90 being the only internal effects.
-now fitted with two Bare Knuckle Mississippi queens for a bright cutting tone but with plenty of clout.


thats all, thanx.. smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

Death Metal
Devices Used:
Boss Metal Zone MT2
Marshall JCM 800
Guitar with a bridge humbucker

Sound Description:
Growling death metal kick-ass sound.

Settings:
Metal Zone----
Level: A bit over half way
High: Min
Bass: Max
Middle: A bit over 3/4
Mid Freq: 3/4
Dist: Over half way

Marshall---
Use the clean channel
Bass: 2
High: 7
Middle: half way

Start with those. Then adjust the sound like you want. First make the clean channel sound good if you plan to use it and then adjust the pedal. But anyway, I suggest to keep MID and MID FREQ settings like that.

My Sound
Devices Used:
ESP LTD F-200 through the Metal Zone to the amp, a Peavey Studio Pro 112.

Sound Description:
Even sounding highs and lows and enough middle so it sounds good, but not to where it muddies up the tone.

Settings:
Amp: Low-7
Mid-1
High-9
Pedal: Low-3 o clock
Mid-somewhere between 10-11 o clock
Mid freq.-1 o clock
High-3 o clock

Tone and volume knobs all the way up on the guitar, level on amp and pedal as desired. If you're playing a gig and turn the amp way up, you'll get pretty beefy lows, so you may want to turn the lows down when playing at high volumes.

Devices Used:
I usually use my Metal Zone with Marshall amps, my Ibanez RG420FA and Zoom 707 effect processor (or whatever it is called).

Sound Description:
The sound is the best possible I can obtain with this set of equipment. I use it at rehearsals and on gigs, it's relatively good for those situations.

Settings:
My bass and treble are usually at 12 o'clock, depending on my need for treble and bass, another equalizer setting I usually use is: bass at 2-3 o'clock & treble at 12-1 o'clock. My level is usually also at 12'o clock and distortion at 5 o'clock. Middle & mid.freq are at 2 o'clock.

Heavy Metal Distortion
Devices Used:
I use a Digitech Whammy, into the Metal Zone, into a Dunlop Wah, to my crappy Peavey Rage 158 amp. This setting is just forthe metal zone though.

Sound Description:
This gets a good all around heavy metal sound good for Slayer, old Metallica, Pantera, etc...

Settings:
Turn the Level knob to wherever you want it. (up a lot is good)

Turn the Low knob all the way up. Turn the High knob to 3 o'clock. Turn the Mid Freq knob to about 1 o'clock. Turn Middle to about 11 o'clock. For a more death metal distortion you can turn Middle all the way down and play with the Mid Freq knob to find what you like.

Amplifier (I'm going off settings on the Marshall Valvestate 8240, so if it doesn't sound right on a different amp then don't cry and whine that the setting sucks, because this pedal reacts differenlty to differenr guitars, amps and effects in the chain)

On clean channel:
Gain:11 o'clock
Bass:12 o'clock
Middle:9 o'clock
Treble:3 o'clock

Like I said before if it doesn't sound right with your amp set at this, then mess around with your amps eq, because the settings of the pedal are right on dead with the sound of Suffocation)

It sounds really deep with lots of bass. Turn the volume on your guirtar all the way up to maximize the effect. It's a really thick tone and I like it.

I use a similar setting to this to play some Pumpkins stuff like Today.

Settings:
on the pedal:

Level- turn this up to at least 12:00, higher if you want it louder.
Low- all the way up!
High- leave it at 12:00 or if you want a slight high range boost, put it at about 1:00

Rosewood Necks tend to give a warmer, round sounding tone.
Most standard guitars come with a rosewood neck.

Maple necks are edgier and have more bite and twang to the highs. Maple necks tend to be clearer too as opposed to the rosewood.

All goes down what songs you play and the tone you're after.

I don't know but I prefer bolt-ons because somehow those bolts convince me that the neck is strongly fixated to the body. Set-necks makes me sweat sweat.gif , I'm scared someday the neck will just fall off. I think I'm crazy.
