The tone pot comes after the volume pot, between the volume pot and guitar output.
If you recognize any of the scenarios above, you should consider the treble bleeder kit which allows the treble frequencies to bypass the volume pot and go directly to the amp.
Caps are often used in circuits where it is desired to stop or pass the high- or low-frequency parts of the signal – often called high- and low-pass filters. At we believe that 250k tone and volume pots is a good choice of clear fendery tone with just the right amount of sparkle and low-end.
Also a 250K tone pot makes your guitar less sensitive to “bad” or long guitar cables with high capacitance that kill some treble and clarity.
This is the most standard wiring – three single coil pickups, 5-way switch, 250k volume and tone pot, the lower tone pot coupled for both mid and bridge pickup and no treble bleed components/wiring.
