http://www.planetz.com/guitar-treble-.... In part one of this video, I explain what treble bleed is, and how to evaluate and select the right cap. I demonstrate my G&L ASAT III which has a treble bleed cap on the master volume, and I compare that with my Epiphone Riviera P93 which has no treble bleed caps (yet).

The caps I try here are: Silver Mica 100pf, 390pf and 1000pf, a tiny 1000pf ceramic cap, and Sprague Orange Drop (polypropylene) 1000pf, 3300pf, and 6800pf.

In the part two, I'll explain some basic soldering skills, and show how to solder the caps onto the pots.

For my video on how to remove electronics from a semi-hollow body guitar, see my other video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS9ZB_...
