All the guitars use a humbucker pickup in the bridge position and an amp with clean and overdrive channels. Another option is to pair the amp with an overdrive/distortion pedal that can be easily turned on and off with the foot. The wah-wah effect pedal adds a sweet expressive element to the Solo and Outro but sounds great if no wah-wah is available. For EQ set the treble at 2 o’clock, mid at 1 o’clock, and bass at 11’o’clock. These settings should get you pretty close to the desired tones on whatever gear you have.
