Here’s a pretty decent EQ chart I came across. It’s been doing the trick for me lately.

Vocals
Boost:
12kHz (Shelf)
250-500Hz: For presence

Cut:
500-850Hz: just a touch to bring out clarity
800-900Hz: to tame piercing highs in a male vocal
2-3kHz: to tame piercing highs in female vocal

Guitars
Boost:
100Hz: for warmth and power
500Hz: for body
3-4kHz: for edge and bite

Bass
Boost:
100Hz (but no lower)
800Hz: adds presence
3-5kHz: for clarity

Piano
Boost:
10kHz: adds sparkle and air
5kHz: for presence (best on solo)
100Hz: good for adding drive to rock pianos

Cut:
200-500Hz: reduces muddieness

Kick Drum
boost:
100Hz: for punch
6-8kHz: for slap

Snare
Boost:
100Hz: for punch
5kHz: for presence
10kHz: for splash

Hi Hats n Cymbals
Boost
5kHz: for presence
7-12kHz: for clarity and air

Overheads
Boost
2.5-5kHz: for presence
10-12kHz: for air

Cut
200-300Hz: to reduce crowding
