    Hi everyone, I'm about to start a project on my Japanese '93. RG 470. The stock pickups were changed to Evolution neck and bridge with True Velvet single coil. Now I have ordered the V-Treb treble bleed circuit for it, and I want to split the neck pickup using the 500k push-pull pot on volume...

    I'm just wondering what you folks use for their treble build circuits, if you use them at all. I just got to thinking about this subject because I'm getting ready to switch all my guitars over to a 330 pF set-up. My Charvels have a Dimarzio circuit, which is a cap and resistor (don't know the...
