I'm determined to start using my archtop at some of my weekly gigs. (My trio plays outside on a patio, 2 guitars & an upright bass, through amps at low volume). I love Django's electric stuff, and I'm trying to honor his tone by approximating it a bit, while not trying to copy it. I'm fairly happy with the sound I'm getting, but feel it could be better. Any advice will be appreciated. I'm playing an old Epiphone Joe Pass through a tweed Fender Blues Jr. I'm using the neck pickup with the tone on 10 (so my chords wont be too bassy) and the volume at around 5. I've got the master volume on the amp at around 4 and the volume at about 2.5. The tone settings are all around 2 or 3, with a touch of reverb. If anyone has a suggestion for how to make it sweeter, I'd love to hear it.
