Favorite blues guitar and guitar setting
For hard rock, metal of all stripes, and punk, it's hard to beat a high gain instrument like an Ibanez, Jackson, or Schechter if sales in those genres are any indication. Sometimes it comes down to fighting over if the S is better or the RG, or vice versa.
But what guitars, and settings, do you prefer for blues?
For clean blues, I love a straight ahead stratocaster in the neck setting and for blues with a little bit of distortion, I like a the middle position setting on a telecaster (volume rolled off 1/2), and both of those through a small amp. While it's very similar playing blues on a Gibson or Ibanez or hollowbody like a Gretsch, somehow I like these two the best. What's your setting?
