I always start at halfway, as my EQ usually doesn't vary as much from the halfway mark really...

I don't recall where I read this but someone said to start in a "flat" configuration set highs to 0, mids all the way up, and low to 0. 
This did seem to give the most neutral tone on my Reverberocket 212.  That seems like a good place to start experimenting.

I've never heard about that, but considering not all amps have the same tone stack you can't really do that with all amps.

I never really started from -12 (all the way down), 0 (halfway), or 12 (all the way up). I just scoop my mids like crazy because I think it produces a clearer, crisper clean sound, and compliment my strat beautifully (plus they kick ass when you dial up the distortion). Then I I boost my bass and treble accordingly from wherever they previously were.

I usually setup all my amps with the bass at about 8, mids at about 3-4 and my highs at about 5-6 and then adjust from there. Never realized that cranking everything out gives me the true tone of my amp.
