Fig. 1

Lots of players love treble-bleed circuits, but they don’t play well with fuzzes. Here’s how to fix that.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage! This month, we will take a deeper look into a problem that occurs when using a treble-bleed network on a volume pot.

Same for using such a device with an active guitar circuit or after an active buffer device. The tone will start to sound harsh and not desirable at all. So why is this and what can be done about it?

Because Fender recently added a very good Duo-Sonic model to their Player series, and I received a lot of questions about how to mod this simple guitar, I decided to show this wiring on a Duo-Sonic.
