I can't for the life of me remember where I read it, but I believe I read somewhere that American Special Tele's come stock with a treble bleed in addition to the greasebucket circuit. I've never used a treble bleed, so I don't know to compare but it sure sounds to me as though treble is being lost when I turn the volume down. In theory, the idea of a treble bleed in conjunction with the greasebucket seems like a great idea, allowing you to have exactly as much treble as you want at all volumes. If its not there already, has any one installed one? What are your impressions?
