    Bypassing a tone control means that no signal is being cut by the capacitor, and thus your tone is brighter.

    There are no disadvantages that i know of.
    I use a push pull pot to bypass the tone control, since those No-Load pots only come in 250K.
     
  3. PM user "has-sound" if you need a no-load 500k pot
