Re: 5E3 Volume Taper?
I can't speak for an original Fender tweed Deluxe, but the kit I built also pretty much comes full on at 2. Your speaker choice will have some effect on clean headroom, I use a Weber P12N. You can also adjust the volume of the unused channel to about 9 or 10 for more clean, around 6 or 7 for less clean (more mids). You can also turn back the guitar's volume knobs. Good luck. Jeff
