    Just curious, what do you have your volume knob set to on your guitar?

    Generally around 5/6.
    I love the ability to raise or lower volume with that knob instead of a pedal.

    I use my tone and volume a lot and it fluctuates, especially from guitar to guitar. So many different tones can be had as needed by the simple roll of a dial

    There's a video of Andertons and Marsden with The Beast. If you watch that it's a lot like me minus his skills!

    Around 5 or 6. I like headroom.

    Put guitar to 10, turn up amp until pretty loud, then dial back the guitar volume to reasonable level....5 or 6 usually. Then there's some volume dynamics that can be used.

    Somewhere between 0 and 10, depending on what I’m doing at that moment. Same for the tone knobs.

    It depends on the guitar, but generally it sits at 6-8 when I pick up the guitar and gets nudged a bit from time to time. I move it about half a step when I switch from picking to finger style.

    The outlier is a prototype Les Paul I have that sits at about 3. Les Paul put some experimental pickups in it that just scream.

    For rhythm around 7, 10 for lead. Tone always varies.

    I read the title of this thread in Dwight Schrute’s voice:D
    Answer to the question: W.F.O.


    My Singlecuts are set for the classic “Woman Tone” in the neck position, though.

    I think this is actually a joke... those knobs aren't there for turning, they're there for decoration, right?

    I run mine generally between 3 and 10 on both volume and tone, depending on needs. It's great to be able to control my amps and even pedals with the guitar controls. There are an infinite number of tones on tap that way.

    Are we serenading or coping an attitude? I’m a volume jockey…mostly 3 - 10 with an emphasis on 4 - 8.

    For me the Santana is a 8 - 10 volume 3 - 4 tone. The 245 is 7 - 10 on both volumes and 3 on the bridge tone 7 on the neck tone. The CU 24 and the HB2 are 6 - 9 volume and 6 tone.

    It all really depends on what kind of noise i want to make.

    Same ;)

    But for real - either 10 or zero
