    Well yeah but this guy sounds uncommonly good so his treble bleed values must be uncommon!

    Thanks for the explanation.
    I couldn't make out the details on my screen and don't know resistor value by eye, have a decoder somewhere, but it's one of those things I have trouble with.

    The "three high tone, three low tones" wiring is still a mystery, it's possible that the mini hum was taken apart and split into four wires for up to three sounds, and if the bridge pup is an SD Jerry Donahue it would be a one sound pickup, but combinable in series or parallel- I didn't hear any out of phase combo, though I suppose he might seldom use that particular sound.

    Sucked into the idea that a great players sound can be traced back to their gear, yet I'm familiar enough with the limitations the pickups place on the resulting sound, and here we have a great player who clearly feels a very specific need to have a mini hum neck pup instead of the stock Tele pup, so his gear plays a significant role.

    I am not gear obsessed and play Esquires pretty much exclusively, partly because there I haven't found a neck pickup that balances with my preferred bridge pup without compromising the bridge tone by setting the amp to eliminate the bassy mud of the neck pup.

    I don't hear that here and want to know why!

    In Levi Clay's interview with Scotty you can hear him explain the functions of the switches around the 35:56 min mark. I still have no idea how to wire it though???
