This is simply a 220K resistor in parallel with a 471pf capacitor. We use them on our pre-wired guitar assemblies to preserve high end frequencies and improve the taper when rolling back your volume potentiometer.
The volume mods are soldered in parallel between the first and second lugs (2 open lugs) of the volume pot.

null Recently rewired a 335 with mojotone's pre-wired harness and included this volume mod capacitor in the process. Everything sounded great except the guitar was a little thin, especially on the high end. I figured this "treble bleed" capacitor was the reason and I cut it out of the circuit. Big mistake- the tone went flat in comparison. This simple capacitor brings so much life and sparkle it's surprising. In this case, it creates kind of a "fender jangle" from humbuckers. Definitely worth a try in any guitar.

Service Shop Manager This mod cap filter works almost perfectly within any kind of pickups configuration and, specially on humbuckers with a moderated output range.

Wouldn't Be Without It I'll add one more to the chorus. It's very important to me that my tone stays the same as I roll down the volume on my guitar. In my mind, if I want the tone to change, that's what the tone pot is for. I ride the guitar volume quite a bit to control both volume and gain as I play, and without this modification the tone gets muddy in a hurry when turning down. I've experimented quite a bit with capacitor and resistor values and this kit from Mojotone is the best combination I've found. The kit is put together neatly and is ready for quick installation. I have this in my Telecasters, Les Paul and 335 and it works great in all of them.

null Not to be nitpicky but it's actually a 470pF capacitor. The '1' in '471' is the multiplier. (47 x 10).

More than meets the eye... To paraphrase and partially mirror what the previous reviewer stated, this is a fantastic little piece of electronics. Most combo's like this are either thin-sounding or dull, this one seems to be the right answer in 99% of situations! It really evens out the taper of the pot' and does an astounding job of maintaining the tone it is fed. Very well worth the handful of dollars.

Awesome Mod For Single Coil Tele's I bought 5 of these little guys and they are AWESOME. Yes, it will change your taper a little on your pot but to me it makes the pot work better. It seems like it actually works from 1-10 instead of not doing anything until 5-10. I have tried other treble bleed circuits and they seem to get really thin and tinny sounding as you roll back the volume. These, to my ears, sound very balanced, keeping your lows and highs as you roll back the volume control. I installed it on a Squier Classic Vibe 50's Vintage Blonde Tele with single coils and it just sounds awesome. I would buy them again when I run out and I would definately recommend to a friend or anyone for that matter. Thank you MOJOTONE! You guys ROCK!
