What was the purpose of the .001 capacitor in this 60 (Modern wiring diagram) liked below.

and what would it do if installed on a 250k vol pot instead of a 1 meg as shown

thanks

1. Looks like a treble bleed to me.

2. I don't see any reason for a value above 250K.

This is all you need.

I'm with Pinetree on this. I use 250k pots in all of my Teles.

Hey pine

just curious doesn't a treble bleed usually have a resistor in the mix.

This is how my lefty custom shop tele came wired and of course it had std audio taper pots not lefty tapered pots. so all i had was the standard its on or off wiring

LRO, there's a few ways of doing a treble bleed.
One is indeed with a resistor and a capacitor, but it can be done with a cap only too.

I've been using a .001uf cap only for my guitars for a while now (a Peegoo suggestion) and I find it works just fine for me.

The reason I prefer just the cap is because adding a resistor progressively decreases the total resistance as the volume is rolled off. This makes the pot curve flatter than I like it.


Edited: I initially said steeper, but I meant flatter. Flattery will get me nowhere...

Never tried a cap only treble bleed but if it makes the curve more logarithmic I'd like to try it.
