There is a lot of gain to begin with so it's hard to hear more of it with the tone lifted. Seems to feedback a little easier (which is an obvious clue) but tone wise, I think I like the sound with it lifted better. Do you have any PAF range PU's you could demo? :thumbsup:

Thank you for checking out my clip.
I kinda like it better with the lift mod. It is a little brighter and gainy. The mids are really honking and what I like most is the feel. Great string attack.
I think it would work best with a footswicth on/off as a solo boost for live playing.
I don't have any PAF like pickups right now but I do plan on getting one to try out in my fat strats bridge postion.

A while back, I did a very similar foot switchable thing lifting the NFB loop, using one of the speaker jacks. Added a little more gain and made it feel a little slippery and greasy, so to speak. Was pretty cool but I've since put it back. Stock always finds its way back to me. 8)

I'm like you, stock is best for my musical needs.
I mod ton's of amps for customers all the time and it's funny because I usually keep my all original 1971 Super Lead in it's stock form with only a Lar/Mar PPIMV mod. It still does a very good early VH tone and covers all the 70's rock stuff I love to play.
