    Low volume - semi-dark - semi - dark, I never know what number I'm on. All of mine have custom Tele knobs and theres no number.

    Whats this you say? You can turn them? Mine are always on 10 unless I go upstairs to eat dinner then I just turn the volume to 0. All my guitar are so quit that you dont even know they are on till you hit the strings. I change the tone with my multi effects pedal. Got all the patches named by the song or the sound.

    It is a Zoom gx10n. Very cheap pedal but has massive abilities and there are you tube videos with settings that you can put into it. I have all mine customized for whatever song I am playing but there are lots of preset patches, 105 in fact. Also has a looper and a pedal for wah.wah and or volume control. You can also use batteries and headphones to play your guitar anywhere. It is powered so It does not require an amp. You can run it thru any speakers such as computer, stereo whatever as long as you have a 1/4: to 3mm adapter.

    I bought my first Strat around 1991ish. I still can not figure out how the dang knobs work with the 5-way switch. That's why all my Strats have just two knobs - one vol, one tone. Mine are 10 (vol) 7-10 (tone).

    Same here. Doesn't matter where they are when I pick it up. That will change as soon as I start playing something. Key is to use them to dial in the sound for what you are playing.

    Usually changes, but for blues tone, V: 9 and T: 8 except when it's solo time, then volume goes up to 10 :cool:

    I start with everything on 10, but sometimes roll back the vol. to about 8, which seems to be a real sweet spot, where 10 is full on drive, 8 still has some grit, but is a little sweeter and delicate sounding. And if things are a bit too ice-pickey, then I'll roll back the tone to 6-8, but I rarely go way down on the tone pot into woman tone territory.

    10-10-10, the tone changes based on where I pick. Close to the bridge or closer to the neck. I do adjust the volume for a cleaner sound from time to time. But not too often.

    It's how I've done since I was a baby. Never changed it.
