Is it most common for those running Tweed Deluxe style amps to have the treble bleed mod done on their guitars so their tone doesn't get too dark when rolling odd the guitar volume which is a huge part of utitilizing the 5e3?

I always install the treble bleed cap/resistor on all my guitars, and I have a Mission 5E3 Deluxe, so I'll chime in:

Heck yeah!
The treble bleed is especially useful in conjunction with my 5E3... I vary the guitar volume knob settings constantly when using that amp to go from clean to grind to burn.

In my experience and opinion, the treble bleed mod expands the range of useable tones in a 5e3 amp if you ride the volume knob a lot. Particularly with tele-style bridge pickups. But, I am finding it does not work as well with brighter amps - like the AC-15.

Cool. Thanks guys. I've been contemplating this mod for a while, but especially now that I have a 5e3
