why is it that a strat needs a capacitor while a double humbucker doesnt?what does it do?
humbuckers do too. if you don't have any, you won't have a passive regular tone control.
The capacitor and the tone pot sum together to make a variable lowpass filter.
hmm... i tend to like linking my bridge pups on strats to the mid tone pot. really not that hard to do. gives you control of all 3 pups
