I have a HBII with 53/10 pickups and it's currently wired to the "pre 2007" specs. I am curious about wiring it differently to get the most out of the 53/10's. Since the ME Quatros came stock with 53/10 pickups I've considered trying that schematic . I've played ME4s and noticed how clear (amazing) they sound. It appears to be a sort of "50's wiring" setup with a treble bleed on the volume pot.
I'm still not exactly sure what a treble bleed does when the volume is on 10 (highest, wide open). Does it make a difference? Will I get more clarity/air out of the 53/10s with a 50s style setup? Would changing the capacitor value from .033 to .022 help?
