I had 2 steel plugged into a N400. The one plugged into #2 seemed louder and more rich.

Unplugged #1 and it went quiet and dull.

Plugged a chord only back into #1 and the guitar came back to life.

Went and got a double ended plug and plugged it into #1, still had volume and fullness, sounded better than the guitar just plugged into just #1 like I always do.

I am not into electronics so Donny Hinson or someone enlighten me.

All by accident after 47 years of "that's the way we do it." Old dogs and all of that. I could have just turned the amp up and readjusted some of the tone controls but this sounded great enough that why go searching for that sound when it is right there. Who knew. Thoughts.

This is from the owners manual:
The Nashville 400 has two inputs, one featuring high gain and the other one third as much gain. The High Gain jack is the input normally used unless a signal from the instrument is overloading the input preamp.If your input signal is overloading ( distorting ) the High Gain jack then the Low Gain jack ( - 10db ) should be used. Because of the unique switching design of the input circuitry the gain of both high and low jacks are preserved when instruments are plugged into both jacks.
