Guitar volume, depending on space and effect in use(if any), in between 1/4 to 3/4 and never full on. For the most part at about 1/2 but I am always manipulating it.
When you get a chance check out Jerry and and his use of the volume control of his guitar. It is usually at or near the beginning of a show where you will see him adjust the preamp or amp and then he is done with that. However, he is always adjusting his guitar volume.

I've always kept the guitar volume around 8 and bumped it up for solo's.
I have my front SMS volume at noon and the SMS back pot at about 90%.
My MC40 is maybe half way up.
With these settings I get a very Jerry-like mid 70's sound, but lack some sweetness. Will cranking the Mac all the way up and lowering the guitar volume knob perhaps improve things tonally?
The only reason I'm at all hesitant to try this is because I'm very dialed in at the moment. Sometimes dialing in takes an hour or so of painstaking fidgiting.
