Tone wise, I aim more and more for a 50s Blues and Jazz sound. Really not interested in Rock tones. I use American style amps, mild OD, Tremolo, Reverb and P90s and humbuckers. No Fender single coils. Lately I’ve been really enjoying my S&P L-00 sized acoustic with a Gretsch Deltoluxe pickup...

generous as well as of the
cruel goddess. - Carl Jung
Years ago I started to sell off my medium sized vinyl collection, which I’d been collecting for almost 50 years. All my records were minty. I felt so sad unloading them that I stopped before I’d done too much damage. Thank goodness!

Lower the neck pickup as low as it will go. Start raising it until you’re happy with the tone. Now lower the bridge pickup until it’s matching the volume of the neck. Some like the bridge to be a touch louder for solos and use the neck for rhythm, but I like them matching.
