wiring pickups - a question

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by JC JC, Oct 9, 2013.


  1. I'm installing some Jazz pickups for the first time.
    Here is the wiring diagram:

    The diagram has capacitor caps that are "optional".

    Newbie question:
    If I don't use the capacitors, do I omit them entirely?
    or do I need to use plain wire in their place instead?

    They are called treble bleeds. Just leave them off if you want. Do not use plain wire in their place; the volume won't work if you do.
