Hi. I have a Further, and am having some difficulty really dialing in the sound I want.
No matter what I try, the sounds I am getting are very clinical and sterile. If I get a big bottom end sound, the top is thin sounding. I'm also having trouble getting a "rolled back" and bassy sound for playing jazz.

Are there any tips for pickup adjustments/trim pot adjustments, etc for getting a sound more akin to:

1. A great 70's Jerrytone?
2. A Strat-Like tone?
3. An almost archtop, rolled back jazz sound?

Thanks for the help

Hi Charley,

If you have a moment to call me tomorrow, I should be around all day and can help you out - just a little easier with a real-time exchange on the phone.

Not yet. But, Mica got contacted me right away, which was really cool. Unfortunately, I have just been so busy, I haven't really had much time to really sit down, get on the phone, and do the necessary tweaking and dialing in yet.
