Hi. I hope someone can help with this. I put together a partscaster recently with three SD pickups. Basically a Brent Mason setup, except I have SD mini HB in the neck as opposed to Mr Mason's Gibson mini HB. I love it, however one thing driving me nuts is that the treble loss on the neck mini HB is absolutely brutal when I lower the volume, even from 10 to 9. It's so pronounced that I can't even believe the man himself would have this as his number one guitar. However I bought it all prewired and as far as I can tell the wiring is correct. To me it looks just like the other "brent mason wiring" diagrams out there. And I've spent way more time than I really should have scouring the web looking at them. I emailed the seller but didn't get a reply, so here I am. I reckon I have 2 options, but I'm not entirely sure, so this is where I'd really appreciate feedback. 1) put in some sort of treble bleed mod. What sort works best for mini humbuckers? I mean values for cap and resistor that generally work well for mini humbuckers? Kinman mod etc? 2) bypass the tone pot altogether for the neck mini HB. Would this eliminate treble loss when I turn down the volume? If number 2 would work, how should I modify the wiring? Is this treble loss normal for a wiring/pickup configuration like this? Is there something I should recheck on my wiring job? Crappy soldering? I wrapped the braided wire from the neck HB in electrical tape as I was worried it would touch something it shouldn't and short out. I doubt that's the cause, but waddoiknow. And btw, did I need to do that anyway? The middle and bridge also lose treble but nowhere near as much as the neck. If you took the time to read this, thank you.
