Well, for the first time in a while I got the chance to crank my amp to ten I'm running through a Bassman-ish head with a 2x12 cab.(Weber Ceramic Blue Dog, Celestion Greenback) The strat has Fat 50's. With the tone pots rolled back on the guitar, I was getting this really sticky, almost humbucker like sound! It just surprised me how different the tone pots react at such high volumes. Obviously the harsh high end was removed, but this real, sticky characteristic, in some way like a tele bridge came through. I know, it's hard to make a guitar sound bad on an amp at 10, but I just thought this was interesting, just how different the character of the sound changed. The bridge with the tone between 2 and 4 was really satisfying sounding, very tele like ! Just smacking an A chord was awesome.... I originally got the idea from something Jeff Beck had said. I recall someone in one of the many threads about him, quoting him saying that with the treble on 10, and the bridge tone on 0, he got a real unique sound. I think I know what he was talking about I have yet to put in some good CTS pots, as the ones in my guitar are crappy, and I still have some old blown out sovtek 5881's that need to go as well, so I'm looking forward to how it will sound with these improvements. Sorry if I'm late to the party on this, I just thought it was cool. I'd tried messing around with the knobs on my strat with less success previously, but this was a real revelation. The clean sound w/ the vol. on 5-6 was real cool as well. I've just been SO damn frustrated with my sound for the last year and a half, this along with some recent pedal purchases for low volume affairs has made me happy.
