treble bleed volume control.

One downfall of many guitar wiring circuits is the loss of high end frequencies when the volume control is rolled down, resulting in a dark, muddy sound. It effectively makes the volume control a little redundant when it is lowered below 6. Adding a treble bleed into your circuit counter-acts this and provides a more rounded sound when the guitar is set at a low volume. It retains the high end frequencies and allows the guitarist to lower the volume whilst retaining clarity. A treble bleed consists of a 150k resistor soldered onto a 0.001uf capacitor and is connected to the input and output lugs of the volume pot as per the above wiring diagram.
