Hi-does anybody have a wiring diagram including pot values and treble bleed circuit details for the above guitar?

I want to wire a strat in same format

Cheers in advance

There's no specs for at100's treble bleed.... Anyone!!!
That's because the AT100 did not have a treble bleed as standard, it's something that was installed by AT's guitar tech, it's simply a small plate ceramic capacitor of around 330pF installed between the output of the volume control and ground. You may not even need one since it's more particular to the gear that you're using rather than the style you play.

This is starting to sound like a "HELP! I don't sound like Andy Timmons" thread, relax, no-one else sounds like him either, it's not a gear thing, it's an AT thing.

Blaah. I know there isn't TB in AT100. But I don't try to copy his gear or skills... For me this is an interesting trivia-fact about AT:s guitar. There's also couple of different ways to do TB, so because You seem to know things, are you sure that there's only one cap in his guitar? :)

That's a good explanation of a slightly better circuit, but you'll still have to muck about with component values.
I have no idea what's hiding in AT's guitar but I suspect three capacitors, one for each pot since he has two volumes and a tone control. Also he uses three humbuckers so pots need to be 500k, I guess it also depends how long your lead is, it's a rabbit hole down there and you may never get out of it again.

not true on the 500k thing. having 250k pots allows for some more of your higher end to move to through the pot to the ground due to its lower resistance between the legs of the pot.

if you have bright pickups like single coils or evolutions you can use a 250k to tame the high end. Brightness is often associated with a lower DC resistance because there is less attenuation due to less winding around the pickups. This allows for more high end frequencies in the pickup and make it to your controls.

250k pots also give you that sort of springy mid range which can also be desirable when looking for a strat like sound. It wouldn't surprise me if the tone pot is 250k and the two volumes are 500k.

the treble bleed mod is useful and i do recommend it. you can look at the js1000 wiring for a using a push/pull pot to engage it or the other diagram to have it static in the circuit. You can play around with the value of the pot to get the right feel. I usually use a smaller value pot than 330 pf .
