Welcome to the club! I spent a few days messing with it before I got it to sound decent. But by "decent" I mean one of the best overdrive tones I've ever had. But those first hours I was afraid it didn't live up to it's rep. I guess my message is, if it doesn't sound right at first, keep messing with it. And use it with your Tele (or if you have one, a Les Paul with P-90's). You'll be glad you did!
They say tone is in the fingers. Stick your fingers in your ears. Hear anything?
