Project: Treble Bleed

by MikeT

This is a really simple mod that can be added to most guitars. The circuit is used to brighten up guitars that darken the tone as the volume is rolled off giving more clarity to the signal during the full sweep of the pot. It's easy to install and can be further tweaked by playing with the resistor and capacitor values. A carbon comp resistor was chosen for a classic look but any type will work.
