When the Treble Bleed Circuit is included: Turning the volume control applies varying amounts of a specially tuned high frequency filter to the selected pickups. Now each pickup has the ability to produce a stronger, fuller tone and 50% less noise. This variable treble bleed circuit is pre-installed.

NORMAL Position 1 of the 5-way selector switch activates the bridge pickup alone by engaging the toggle switch at this point it will activate the neck pickup giving you the bridge and neck pickups together.

Likewise, with the 5-way selector switch in the second position with the bridge and middle pickups activated, a flick of the toggle switch adds the neck pickup to the equation which gives you ALL of the pickups together. Two choices now missing on a stock Strat. In the quick Run-Down: Here’s what you’ll get after we added the 7 Sound Toggle Switch between the Tone Controls :

Position 1-Will give you tones and sounds reminiscent of the“Byrds” Rickenbacker tone.

Position 2-Will make all three pickups available at one time.

5-way switch pickup selections PLUS Your 2 new selections:
position #1 Bridge pickup alone bridge + neck in parallel  
2nd position is bridge + middle pickup in parallel all three pickups in parallel
position 3 middle pickup alone
4th position is middle + neck pickup in parallel
position 5 neck pickup alone

The treble bleed circuit …

This guitar body has a very warm and crisp sound. It is built light and resonant for sustaining notes. The treble bleed circuit keeps it clear with a good strong signal all the way down. You can add extra bass with the tone controls. The middle pickup is a RWRP which is wired like a humbucker in positions 2 and 4 on the 5 way switch. Overall a great choice for many styles and genres. Because of it’s very light weight, it is extremely and comfortable to play all night long.
