    I got an Ibanez sr506 today and it has a 3 band eq on it and I don't know what to set it up as because it's new to me and I just want a good tone for slapping/metal.

    Start with the bass, midrange and treble knobs set in the middle, and use your ears. If you're new to it, just focus on playing and learning the instrument for now.

    For slapping (and certain metal styles), tradition is to turn the midrange down and the bass and treble up. Don't turn those knobs all the way to start with. Keep it gentle as you learn.
