Hi, first post here. I'm looking for some advice. My 91 american strat I've had since I was a kid is on its last legs so I was looking into getting a new one. The American Professional strat was what I was looking at, but theres one thing that worries me... The treble bleed part on the volume pot! I like to use the volume pot on my strat to adjust my tone. I find that putting the volume down to around 6-7 is a much more effective way to get a softer pillowy tone instead of using the tone knobs... So can anyone with the American professional offer and thoughts on your experience with this? I guess alot of it is personal preference but I really think it would throw me off from what I'm used to. Also does anyone know if the treble bleed circuit is easy to remove if I decide to get the professional but don't like the treble bleed? Any advice or thoughts, or maybe I should just look for an older model? This might be the only thing thats holding me back from buying this guitar, but maybe I'm making too big of a deal about it. Thanks!
