Got this guitar 5 days ago. So much output (especially low end) that I have my Deluxe Reverbs (run in stereo) bass set at 1 or 2. With the Strat which has hot rails it is 5 treble 5 bass. The P Jet 7 treble 2 bass and when the volume goes past 5 I can't get a clean sound without backing down the volume on the guitar considerably. But therein lies the magic. It blew out a speaker in a deluxe, (and I suspect a twin when I test drove it at Guitar Center). Holy Crap you gotta work the volume knobs on these pickups. From off in the first 10 degrees of rotation to 85% volume. Remaining 15% is spread over 350 degrees. Main volume knob is a bit more realistic. It cuts into the overdrive when you do volume up or down of course. But the overdrive, bassy as it is is there. Even without a tube amp you can mix the pup volumes just right and get ZZ Top's "Jesus Just Left Chicago" nailed perfect without a pedal. (Crate Powerblock). Great guitar, just don't expect a strat sound. Much darker, gutsy, overdriven sounds that will rip speakers apart. Turn the bass down. These p'ups are hot mo'fos. They are like a distortion pedal in the form of knobs on the guitar. Now I gotta go order an eminence speak with the muscle to handle this thing! Every time I pick this thing up I find new ways to get what I want out of it. Like an endless array of colors to paint with. Get one. And save your papers so the Lacy Act freaks won't hassle you.

I own this ax and it can do a jazz or rock sound with ease. It definitely sounds better through a tube amp. I have a line 6 micro spider and it just cant handle the output.

Hi!

I got this guitar a week ago. Before that I looked this video many times. The sound I hear on this video is very cool. I have a PODxt-Live (FX + Collector classics + metal shop model packs installed). I'm unable to set this sound. I spent many time with it.
I have a Roland Jazz Chorus 77 (JC77). This doesn't sounds like the one on in this video.

Please tell me how can I set this sound? Can I set it in my PODxt live? If not. Can I set in in a PodX3 live?

Thanks,
Zoltan
