JS1000 High Pass Filter, why is it on a push pull?

I have a JS1000 that is the most amazing guitar I've ever owned!
It sings, screams, moans, and wails all at the same time!

My guitar has had some changes to the wiring at some point.
The High Pass Filter cap is an Orange Drop .047 (Sprague 716P series).
The drawings show it as a 330pf.

So.....here are my questions......
1. Why did Ibanez or Joe make the high pass filter on a push/pull pot? Most of my other guitars have this cap on the volume pot and they sound great.
Is there a huge difference in tone when the cap is removed?

2. What values of caps have you guys used in the past? I don't notice any difference with the .047 when the volume is rolled down.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
