You may have read my post where I was deciding between my Marshall SL5 and Axe. I still have both and know I want to keep the Axe. My only problem is I can't seem to get the clean tones out of my axe without it sounding like crap where the cleans sound really nice on the SL5. I'm talking about playing chords that don't sound extremely muddy or almost like i'm overloading the monitors(Yamaha HS80's). I have a few Les Paul's that i've tried and chords just sound really bad on my monitors. What am I doing wrong? I've tried various amps, AFD, JCM800, Friedman's, etc and the chords sound muddy or over distorted. Is this just the case or am I doing something stupid?
