    It's a trebble bleed capacitor across the non-grounded terminals of the volume pot. torres engineering sells a kit.

    It involves 50 cents worth of parts and some soldering.

    Does the same mod (.002 cap and 100k resistor) work for humbucking equipped guitars too or do the values need to change?
